OneSky Jets Expansion Continues With Opening of Manhattan Office

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - OneSky Jets (www.onesky.com) is continuing to expand its market presence in the United States with the opening of its newest office located directly across from Madison Square Garden at 11 Penn Plaza in New York City. "In the five years that we have been building OneSky Jets we have developed a significant membership base in Manhattan; this office will allow us to better serve these existing members while accelerating our growth in this important market," says OneSky Jets Founder and CEO Greg Johnson.

In response to market trends and to targets of opportunity OneSky Jets has also opened offices in Denver, CO and Minneapolis, MN within the past eight months. The New York City office brings the total number of OneSky Jets locations to four including company headquarters in Manchester, NH. "Our focus on the fundamentals is responsible for fueling this growth," reports Johnson. "Private jet flyers look to us for our unmatched safety due diligence and for our fanatical approach to excellence in every flight experience."

OneSky Jets credits its FedEx heritage (CEO Johnson and VP Operations Ed Egan are both veterans of FedEx Express) for its ability to deliver higher quality and more personalized experiences than its competition. OneSky Jets' command center and its proprietary in-house flight support systems are at the absolute leading edge. Six individuals log an average of thirty-five different checks and updates for every flight. This level of oversight and accountability is unparalleled in the industry and it translates into better, safer, more personal experiences for OneSky Jets flyers.

The "culture of safety" is a critical factor that fliers cite when they are asked why they selected OneSky Jets. OneSky Jets subscribes to the services of two independent third-party safety intelligence services and is a founding member of the newly formed Air Charter Safety Foundation where Johnson is also a member of the board. OneSky Jets assisted in the development of Wyvern Consulting's Pilot and Aircraft Safety Survey (PASS) program and served as its launch customer. The Company has been one of the highest volume users of the Aviation Research Group (ARG/US) TripCHEQ system since it first subscribed in 2004. Most important, every employee is instructed to "treat every flight as if your own family were onboard."

Also important to OneSky Jets' success and rapid growth has been is its strong relationships with its supply network. More than one third of the OneSky Jets staff are licensed pilots, hold aviation degrees or both. The base of aviation knowledge at OneSky Jets is a core strength that translates into better relationships and preferred pricing from a carefully selected group of the best charter operators within the air charter industry.

"To be expanding in this challenging economic environment is a clear signal that we are in tune with what today's private jet fliers are looking for," concludes Johnson.
