The World's First Truly Global Jet Card, The Lindbergh Card, Inaugurates a New Era in Private Aviation

Air Charter Service Partners With Erik Lindbergh to Extend Legendary Aviation Legacy; New Jet Card Offers Global Access to Largest Range of Private Aircraft on Market

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 5, 2012) - Air Charter Service announced today that Empyrean, their new jet card division, is launching the world's first truly global jet card, the Lindbergh Card. Erik Lindbergh, grandson of pioneering American aviator Charles Lindbergh, is continuing his grandfather's legacy by lending his name to the jet card that will revolutionize the private aviation industry.

"The prepaid Lindbergh card allows customers to book any type of private aircraft, whether it is a private jet or helicopter anywhere in the world by simply sending an email," said Chris Leach, chairman and founder of Air Charter Service. "For the first time in the industry, we are offering customers a product which allows complete travel flexibility without hefty premiums, hidden fuel costs or added bureaucracy."

The Lindbergh Way -- Fly How You Want, When You Want, Where You Want

The Lindbergh Card is the most flexible, easy-to-use private jet card on the market. Holders of the Lindbergh Card will enjoy total freedom from the restrictions associated with not only current jet cards, which typically limit travel to specified regions or aircraft types and categories, but also fractional and full aircraft ownership.

Whether a corporate executive traveling to the far-reaches of China or a glam globetrotter summering in The Hamptons, a personal Lindbergh Card Account Manager offers the resources and expertise to put a cardholder's perfect flight together at a moment's notice. Air Charter Service offers Lindbergh Card holders access to more than 150 different aircraft types, suitable to journeys of varying lengths and routes.

With a worldwide network of offices, Air Charter Service has staff on the ground with local market knowledge and regional relationships that allow for a level of service unparalleled in the industry.

The Lindbergh Card Financial Advantage -- Fly More with No Hidden Fees

Requiring a minimum deposit of only $100,000, cardholder's funds are held in an individual trust account. The product is tailored to each customer's requirements, so the initial deposit will reflect how much, or how little, the customer wishes to fly. Along with being held in a client trust account, funds can be refunded at any time, allowing customers complete peace of mind.

The Lindbergh Card is a fully inclusive jet card with no peak-day restrictions, no expiration date, no monthly management fees or additional fuel surcharges. This all-inclusive program alleviates cardholders of common hidden costs that can reach thousands of dollars at the end of a trip when using other services.

Utilizing Air Charter Service's global network of offices and thousands of safety vetted aircraft operators worldwide, Lindbergh Card holders can enjoy savings between 10%-40% per year, when compared with existing jet card products without compromising quality. Air Charter Service has a 100% safety record across its passenger divisions.
