LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - ClipperJet, Inc., North America's premier private jet experience, today announced it is now accepting its first 60 members to participate in the company's official launch with all-new private and corporate memberships starting well below commercial carrier first class rates. ClipperJet will quickly become the premiere way to travel between Los Angeles and New York, with additional city pairs to follow. ClipperJet allows its members to enjoy the freedoms of a first class private jet experience, minus the hassles of traditional travel between the nation's busiest airports. Cut your total travel time nearly in half flying with ClipperJet and save a little money along the way. ClipperJet will be offering monthly Country Club type memberships that will be far less than flying commercial business and first class. Details on memberships are available on FlyClipperJet.com/Member-Options.com. For the past two months, ClipperJet has already secured commitments for almost 50% of its pre start-up memberships and is now opening this option up to the general public. Total memberships are limited to 100 in Los Angeles and 100 in New York City. Anybody who travels the city pair once a month or more can justify a membership.
"As an airline executive having traveled to more than 50 countries as a consumer, I saw the need to create an experience to fill the great divide between corporate jet charter services, jet card/fractional ownership programs and the commercial airline business and first class cabin," said James Occhipinti, CEO, ClipperJet Inc. "I experienced firsthand the exorbitant fees both businesses and consumers have paid to commercial airlines and felt there had to be a middle ground where consumers could enjoy the luxuries of a private jet experience, but without the traditional fees and hassles of trudging through airports that have always equated to lost time, money and quality of life."
The Gulfstream IV (G4) twin-jet aircraft will be ClipperJet's aircraft of choice, mainly because of its quality and safety record in private and business aviation. Each ClipperJet flight will include 5-star concierge level service, first class amenities and the ability for members who travel frequently to do so in comfort, without the hassles of TSA check points, long lines and total travel times between Los Angeles and New York that save up to 5 hours per round trip. ClipperJet aircraft will fly 100 miles per hour faster and 10,000 feet higher than the typical airliner.
Starting in the 3rd quarter of 2014, ClipperJet will provide non-stop round trip jet services between Los Angeles and New York. To keep this experience 5-star, ClipperJet can only allow for 100 members per city. ClipperJet will start service by flying out of Van Nuys airport in California and Teterboro airport in New York City, only 12 miles from midtown Manhattan. Once you arrive at either location, members have the option to select between a variety of livery services, including limousine and town car services.
