Private Jet Charter Company Celebrates Twelve Years Growth, Milestones in Turbulent Air Charter Industry

Large Selection, Best Price Guarantee and Industry Reputation Propel Jet Charter Favorite New Flight Charters

JACKSON HOLE, WY--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2016) - U.S. private jet charter leader New Flight Charters this month celebrates its Twelfth Anniversary arranging and providing charter flights in the US and worldwide.

Since 2004, when the company began, the private jet charter industry has experienced tumultuous ups and downs, just in recent times appearing to be confidently climbing out following the 2008 recession. 

Through it all, charter services company New Flight Charters was growing and profitable 11 of the 12 years, including being awarded to the Inc. 500 fastest growing companies list every year from 2009 to 2012.

Vastly different from most air charter brokerages whose key personnel come from financial products or other sales jobs outside of aviation, New Flight Charters' founding brokers had a history in private aviation and were active private and commercial pilots. 

"Coming from a background of flight operations and being the one responsible for the customer experience and service, we look at arranging charters quite differently than most," states Rick Colson, New Flight Charters' Founder and President, "It's about the experience, trust and reputation."

Now with a Charter Management Senior Team of six and a cumulative 46 years in air charter, 51 years FAA-certified experience, 104 years executive management experience and over 17,500 hours personal flight experience, New Flight Charters boasts one of the most experienced and respected teams in the industry.

"The largest number of compliments we receive are about our people," Colson adds.

New Flight Charters has good reason to celebrate; not only twelve years of consistent growth and success, but recognition as a favorite in the industry and as an air charter role model.
