OneSky Jets Launches New Release to Website Bringing New Level of Transparency to Private Aviation

OneSky Fastest Growing Brand in Private Jet Space With Revenue Doubling in Past Six Months

MANCHESTER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 16, 2007 -- OneSky Jets (www.onesky.com), the fastest growing brand in private aviation, launched a new release to its industry-leading website, bringing an unprecedented level of transparency to the private jet space. "The new flow makes it clear to our clients that this is a dynamic marketplace," said Greg Johnson, CEO and President, "and by delivering an instant online estimate, our site goes further than our competitors in terms of transparency and the information we are willing (and able) to provide before asking for contact information."

The website's new release coincides with OneSky's growth. "The company has doubled revenue in the past six months, and Alexa.com has ranked it as the number one website in the private jet marketplace for the last year over more established brands such as NetJets and Sentient," Johnson declared.

The new transparency in the OneSky work flow is apparent from the get-go, when clients are asked in the first step whether price or schedule is more important. "This is more in line with our position as advisors to clients, rather than as purveyors of the lowest price," explained Johnson.

A second significant difference from the past is that the site educates clients about various aircraft size classes and their relative differences in price before it calculates trip specific pricing.

In the third step, the client is offered an online estimate for their trip, and to get the best results, they are advised to submit a detailed request to a OneSky flight advisor.

Johnson adds, "Note that we say 'best results', not necessarily the 'lowest price'. This is an important distinction that we explain to prospective clients. Our clients don't rent the lowest priced cars, stay in the lowest priced hotels, or eat at the lowest priced restaurants.

"Once our advisors have explained the differences between various aircraft alternatives, our prospective clients quite regularly select something other than the lowest priced aircraft. Reasons for this include comfort (a larger cabin), aircraft age, or specific aircraft amenities," Johnson also added.

On the fourth step, where clients enter their contact information, they can click to see a sample firm quote. "This lets a prospective client see what they will receive in return for giving us their contact information and the opportunity to help them with their jet charter need," said Johnson.
