Continues Unprecedented Private Jet Charter Growth, Adds Personnel
JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. –[Feb 8, 2012] New Flight Charters, headquartered in Jackson Hole and a nationwide leader in private air charters, today announced that it achieved 34% year-over-year sales growth in charters arranged for 2011, including a 27% growth in the number of domestic U.S. flights to 1,105. This far exceeds the overall private aviation industry growth of 5% in 2011 according to data from the FAA.
New Flight Charters continues its solid growth trend and its gains in U.S. market-share. Unprecedented in the industry, New Flight Charters has been named three consecutive years thus far to the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing private U.S. companies, which includes company performance data back to 2005.
“With any organization it ultimately comes down to the people,” said New Flight Charters president Rick Colson, “With great people as a foundation, you can produce a great product or a great service. I am convinced we have one of the great teams in charter services, and our continued numbers and performance confirm this.”
In 2011 New Flight Charters became the most recommended U.S. charter service, in the world’s largest marketplace for air charter professionals, CharterX/Avinode.
New Flight Charters reports an increase in repeat clientele as well as first time charter fliers, and added full-time personnel in 2011 in support of the charter increases. Last month New Flight Charters issued a detailed report on the most popular charter aircraft chosen in 2011.
Light Jets were by far the most popular size chartered in 2011, and were almost half (44.6%) of all charters. Midsize Jets accounted for 21.1% of charters during 2011. Turboprops were the third most popular category, at 20.1% of all charters.
