Leading international private jet company launches the heavily anticipated iPhone app, which quickly provides real-time pricing and books trip requests in minutes; making it the ultimate business tool for flying privately
BOSTON, MA. – November 29, 2o11 – Magellan Jets, a leading aircraft charter broker, announces the launch of its Private Jet Search iPhone application for private jet bookings. For years, people have been able to search for commercial flights on a variety of websites, making travel that much more convenient and cost effective. For the reasonable price of $4.99, private jet travelers can download the app through iTunes. The app allows users to search, book and sign for a charter in a matter of minutes from the convenience of their iPhone or iPad anytime, anywhere. Magellan Jets recognizes the need for more flexibility and accessibility in the market of private jet travel and this app allows for instant quoting, linked to live market information and thousands of aircraft and airports worldwide.
The Private Jet Search app is truly a business tool which executives can take advantage of without needing any assistance in making their private travel arrangements. While this is the case, it is available for business and pleasure alike. Travelers can search both one way and round trip options based on their desired destination, departure/return date, aircraft option and passenger count.
Once this information is entered, the app uses real-time technology to pull up every aircraft available, along with the competitive pricing. This innovative search engine cuts the time it takes to search for aircraft availability, while adding the ease of portability and anytime access.
“The Private Jet Search app is a revolutionary tool,” says Joshua Hebert, CEO of Magellan Jets. “It will provide the instant gratification and savings our clients have been yearning for, which is an incredible thing.”
Due to the fact that this is an international app, there is a currency converter available to those who are flying outside of the U.S. High-resolution interior and exterior photos are provided for each aircraft as well, and may be viewed on the flight details page. The estimated flight time and any fuel stops are also shown, giving the client the full scope of what the trip will entail.
The Private Jet Search app also features a GPS- based search to help find the nearest airport. In addition, customers can view the trip leg through Google Maps. The application allows for personalized requests to be sent to Magellan Jets regarding the requested trip, which will be carried out by a dedicated Magellan Jets charter specialist, available 24/7/365.
The level of personalization does not stop there. A list of favorite airports can be saved to streamline the process, which will save customers’ valuable time searching. In addition to this practical solution, there is an ingenious “tip a friend” function which allows customers the opportunity to find a flight and send the option to their friend so that they can see the same aircraft.
Magellan Jets has also begun using state-of-the-art technology which simplifies the booking process by allowing clients to confirm bookings from their computers, iPhones or iPads. Once a client is ready to book a trip on the app, Magellan Jets is now able to e-mail the contract so that the client can sign with their finger on the touch screen of their iPhone or iPad. This has made private jet charter even more seamless and hassle-free than ever before.
With a constant focus on safety standards, Magellan Jets uses Wyvern and ARG/US (Aviation Research Group/United States), the world leaders in aviation safety. By working with these independent, third-party evaluators, Magellan Jets has access to accurate, unfiltered data that allows them to verify the compliance of all charter flights. Ranging from aircraft flight history to operator insurance policies, Magellan Jets compiles all pertinent air charter safety requirements. Operating as a Wyvern Authorized Broker, they have exclusive access to the records and audits of every aircraft and flight crew available and demand the safest records for each flight. Every time travelers fly with Magellan Jets, they’ll be provided with the most up to date background information on the crew and the aircraft based on in-depth research of DOT, FAA, and other aviation safety databases.
