The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a new wave of private air travelers. People who typically fly first or business class are ditching commercial and turning to private aviation to avoid long airport security lines and crowded planes. Such was the case for a recent Shaircraft client, a retired oil executive who was looking for a safer way to bring his daughters home from college for the holidays. We negotiated a jet card contract for him, including added enhancements such as reduced positioning fees and the right to buy a second jet card in the future at the same pricing and contract terms. The family will have more peace of mind when they gather this year, which is priceless.
"It was a pleasure to work with James because it was obvious that he has in-depth knowledge of the aviation industry and the associated contractual issues. James likes to approach his scope of work starting from your travel needs and help you select the appropriate travel solution complete with a well negotiated agreement. If you short circuit the process you will not be leveraging everything he has to offer."
