Magellan Jets Acquires SkyBridge Private Air to Meet the Growing Demand of Their West Coast Clientele

Leading East Coast Private Jet Broker Merges With West Coast Charter Pioneer; Expanding Their National Presence to Meet Members' Needs

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2012) - Magellan Jets, leader in private aviation, announced today the acquisition of California-based SkyBridge Private Air, who were the first to introduce the non-committal on-demand charter program to the market. Magellan is excited to grow and manage SkyBridge's charter department by utilizing its current resources, including their 24/7 Flight Support Team. Additionally, Magellan will offer SkyBridge clients membership services including 25 Hour Jet Cards and their exclusive 10 Hour VLJ Card. These are simplistic and flexible product-based alternatives that SkyBridge's clientele have been seeking.

Magellan's West Coast presence has been further strengthened with their newly opened office in San Francisco. With the West Coast being the hub of entertainment, Magellan's celebrity following has substantially increased. This is an exciting development for Magellan; who has traditionally catered to executives doing business trips and road shows. This is not to say that Magellan Jets will not remain focused on their corporate clientele on the West Coast. They strategically placed their new office in San Francisco to be closer to the growing number of technology companies in Silicon Valley.

Joshua Hebert, CEO of Magellan Jets, reflected on the acquisition, stating, "We are proud to welcome SkyBridge to the Magellan Jets family; effectively managing their already well-established charter department while serving as a solution for their clientele is very rewarding."

Anthony Tivnan, President of Magellan Jets, added, "Our core products, which have been well received in the marketplace thus far, will give Skybridge's clients more variety and flexibility in the way they utilize private jets."

Magellan Jets is distinguished in the industry for its commitment to meeting clients' preferences and demands, providing superior safety and security. Their exclusive amenities include no fuel surcharges, gourmet catering, and no time-specific contracts. They also offer their members guaranteed aircraft availability with as little as ten hours' notice, an average aircraft age of five years or less, concierge service 24 hours a day/365 days a year, as well as two complimentary upgrades a year.
