Most of us only dream of flying by private jet, but there’s a new service in California that’s trying to make that dream an affordable reality. Surf Air is a startup, membership airline that’s looking to transform the way people travel by saving them time and easing travel stress.
Private jet travel once only for the super rich is now affordable Well. Surf Air, with its current fleet of 11, eight-seater jets, has a straight forward business model. Pay $1750 per month, fly as much as you want to any of their 11 destinations in California and never wait in agonizing check in and security lines again.
Surf Air CEO Jeff Potter is a veteran of the airline industry having run Frontier Airlines for years. He isn’t looking to replace commercial airline travel, but is offering busy business travelers an option that rewards them with the gift of time.
“what we’re doing at Surf Air is giving you back that time. And doing it in a way that’s convenient, the private terminal experience, the private aviation experience and we’re doing it in a way that’s cost effective and broaden the audience that can share in that type of experience,” said Jeff.
Surf Air has no plans on slowing down anytime soon. It’s going to be adding 54 new planes to its fleet in the next five years and it plans to add other regions throughout the U.S. And international expansion is being seriously considered.
