Branson Helps You Hire a Private Jet

Virgin Charter

— March 8, 2008 — Luxury
Richard Branson keeps making it easier for the world to travel in style. He wasn't going to stop at Virgin Galactic; now he's launched Virgin Charter, a new online service that lets the uber affluent charter private planes from anywhere in the world.

If the travel bug is crawling around under your skin again, or your, uh, "good friend" wants to take a last minute trip to a romantic destination like San Tropez, just log onto the Virgin Charter site, plug in your destination, and the company will pull up a listing of all the companies that can meet your needs. From there it's up to you to choose who can cater to your needs, and how much you're willing to pay to have those wishes fulfilled.

"Submit your trip request to our network of pre-screened, private charter air operators and we'll start gathering quotes," Virgin says.

They've also got a hot deals section that lets you surf through empty-leg, one-way flights for those lazy afternoons where you just don't know what else to do. Little flights like Palm Springs to Napa will cost something like $2,134 for an 8-person plane. All you have to do is put in your offer!
Trend Themes
1. Online Private Jet Charter - The trend of online platforms for private jet chartering provides convenience and accessibility for the uber affluent.
2. Pre-screened Air Operator Network - The trend of pre-screened air operator networks enables travelers to receive multiple quotes for their private jet charter needs.
3. Empty-leg Flight Deals - The trend of offering empty-leg flight deals provides cost-effective options for one-way private jet flights.
Industry Implications
1. Air Travel - The air travel industry can leverage online platforms and pre-screened networks to offer private jet charter services to affluent travelers.
2. Technology - The technology industry can develop innovative online platforms and tools to facilitate the booking and management of private jet charters.
3. Luxury Hospitality - The luxury hospitality industry can partner with private jet charter services to offer seamless travel experiences to their high-end clientele.
