Avion Private Jet Club Starts the Red Carpet in New York With Special Oscars Weekend Flights

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- And the winner is... everyone flying with the exclusive Avion Private Jet Club to Los Angeles for Oscars weekend. Avion Private Jet Club, the first to launch New York-Los Angeles per-seat pricing on scheduled charter executive jets, offers special flights to luxuriously whisk the cognoscenti to Los Angeles for Oscars weekend.

These flights will depart New York at 4:00pm on Wednesday, February 21, Thursday, February 22, and Friday, February 23, 2007. Guests can choose to take the service one-way or round-trip, with return flights to New York booked on Monday and Tuesday after the awards ceremony.

A "country club in the sky," Avion Private Jet Club offers complimentary door-to-door private town car service, cuisine by fellow member Wolfgang Puck and top flight amenities, such as Italian black cashmere blankets.

Avion normally requires membership to fly, but is offering these special Oscars flights to non-members as a special introduction to the service. The cost for a one-way is $6,987.50.

Avion's innovative model allows its members to purchase individual seats on scheduled chartered executive jets, rather than having to pay for the entire jet. By "sharing" the jet with other Avion members, the cost of a round-trip flight New York-Los Angeles-New York on a Gulfstream IV is just under $14,000.00 per passenger. This is considerably less than the $60,000 charged for a charter and more cost effective than fractional ownership or hourly card programs. Avion members also receive significant discounts over other programs on charters anywhere in the world.

As a U.S. Department of Transportation approved (part 380) Public Charter Operator, Avion offers service between Los Angeles and New York, with plans to expand the frequency of flights and destinations in the near future. Per-seat flights are operated for Avion by Avjet Corporation or similar air carriers. Avjet is both approved and rated by two leading private audit authorities on aviation safety, Wyvern Wingman and ARG/US Platinum.

Avion Private Jet Club is an exclusive members-only service and is similar in convenience to "air taxis" and "day jets" but offers a much more luxurious alternative for long haul flights.
