PRIVATEFLY LAUNCHES ITS NEW SEASON ‘CITY PAIRS’ ROUTES

Oct 15, 2019

Reacting to demand, the charter booking platform has unveiled a new and extended menu of fixed-price charter routes in Europe on the Nextant 400XTi and Legacy 600, available until 31 March 2020

Private jet charter platform PrivateFly, a Directional Aviation company, has announced a new and extended list of discounted, fixed-price private charter routes for the autumn and winter season. This follows demand from its customers who embraced the company’s initial ‘City Pairs’ offering earlier in 2019 – accounting for over 20% of its flights in the summer period - and is a new approach to making the market more accessible.

According to PrivateFly, its ‘City Pairs’ exclusives are 30% lower than average year-round prices on the same or an equivalent aircraft. New route pairings from London include Amsterdam, Zurich, Luxembourg, Frankfurt and Barcelona, adding to existing destinations such as Paris, Geneva and Nice. Prices start from €4,500 (£4,050) one-way between London and Paris on the 6-seat Nextant 400XTi, giving a person price of £675 if a six-strong group fly together.

Longer range pairings on the Legacy 600 include Marrakech and Moscow, and in addition to London, there are accompanying routes to and from Paris, Geneva and Nice. These prices are available for flights departing before 31 March 2020.

Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly, said: "Being part of Directional Aviation’s OneSky family, and having access to a larger fleet enables us to offer these kinds of exclusives, alongside the wider market.

“Our initial range of City Pairs proved very popular with clients over the summer. Not only for the price but for the reliability and certainty. On these routes we can advertise a guaranteed price and take out some of the steps in the supply chain which are usually required to confirm the quote. By committing to volumes, on routes that are operationally efficient, we can offer our City Pairs as a fixed, one-way price upfront.

“It’s a bit like Expedia comparing all places to stay in Paris, but at the same time offering an exclusive they have negotiated with a particular hotel. Ultimately these aircraft and routes won’t be right for everyone, but for clients whose demands align – they won’t find better prices anywhere else.”
