Magellan Jets Expedites Evacuation From Japan

Private Jet Company Offers Evacuation Assistance in Japan

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2011) -  With ample aircraft availability, Boston-based Magellan Jets is able to deliver the air transport being sought after to those stranded in Japan, who are accustomed to flying on private jets, on an urgent basis. Magellan has rushed to offer support in other recent emergencies, such as the volcanic ash that closed down London airports and Hurricane Katrina, successfully transporting many to safety. In addition, Magellan Jets is donating 1% of these charter service fees to the American Red Cross Japanese Relief Fund.

"In response to the tragedy and panic which has ensued, Magellan Jets is working closely with skilled charter operators in order to effectively extract individuals from the affected region and transport them to safety," says CEO of Magellan Jets, Joshua Hebert, who acknowledges the need for crisis management. "We pride ourselves in uncompromised safety and superior service. Fortunately, Magellan Jets is privy to a global network which has the answers we need to fulfill questions about local resources and aircraft position."

While the vast majority of Japan's airports are in the process of re-establishing service, they are faced with excessive demands. Fluctuating flight restrictions have proven to be an obstacle for customers attempting to educate themselves on the most current information. In addition to this, there is a tremendous backlog on commercial flights. These issues will continue to detain a mass amount of people, providing the incentive to rely on Magellan Jets for a direct and simplistic resolution to the problem.

The 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami in Japan immediately triggered Japan's airports to either close or become inaccessible. With an epicenter just 231 miles from Tokyo, the earthquake has caused mass destruction to the country's infrastructure. With over 30 aftershocks following the original quake, with the largest measuring 7.1, the earthquake repeatedly wreaked havoc. The disruption has not been confined to Japan alone; rather, fear has peaked worldwide. Family and friends of those who remain isolated in Japan are frantically seeking transportation to bring loved ones home.
