NEW YORK, NY – Skyjet, one of the nation’s largest charter jet companies and an industry pioneer in technology since 1997, today announced the official launch of Skyjet Max, powered by the next generation of its award-winning iPhone app. Through the app, Skyjet Max provides instant access to a custom fleet of Nextant 400XT jets and other featured aircraft without upfront costs, membership fees or repositioning fees.
Clients using the Skyjet App will get access to an instant booking feature that empowers them to select the exact type of jet they need from the custom fleet, see the price and book their flight instantly by using Apple Pay, the easy and more secure way to pay.
This next generation of the Skyjet App makes chartering a jet as easy and seamless for clients as if they were summoning their own jet. With just a few taps, it provides:
- Skyjet Max: Instant no-fee access to a custom fleet of Nextant 400XT aircraft and other featured jets
- Instant pricing: What you see is what you pay with no repositioning fees
- Instant availability: No need to wait and see if the jet is available
- Instant booking: Through Apple Pay, although credit cards or wire transfers are also accepted
“Skyjet Max, together with the updated Skyjet App, changes the entire on-demand business model by giving the charter market what it has been looking for: instant, direct access to a custom fleet of aircraft set aside exclusively for Skyjet clients,” said Skyjet President Greg Richman. “Booking a flight has never been easier, with seamless, instant booking made possible with Apple Pay, no fees, no memberships and no lengthy waits for quotes or approvals by jet owners to delay booking.”
Skyjet’s access to this custom jet collection includes the Nextant 400XT, which Barron’s recently selected as one of its “Finest Five” business jets, the Learjet 40 XR and the Cessna Citation X, among others. No other charter broker can offer instant access to these aircraft. Skyjet’s market position offers clients consistency with booking, aircraft selection and crewing, all of which creates a far more reliable travel experience.
The updated Skyjet App gives clients the option of requesting a customized quote with a tap of a button. As always, clients have the alternative of working directly with Skyjet’s team of experienced aviation experts via phone, email or live chat.
“The Skyjet App provides travelers with unprecedented efficiency, flexibility and convenience,” said Richman. “The app empowers users to get real-time instant quotes through Skyjet Max, book and pay for their trip – all while on the go. Skyjet Max – compare, book, fly. It really is that easy.”
