Jet Aviation Announces European Charter Alliances
Jet Aviation made a splash at EBACE, also, by announcing Skylliance, a new European charter program consisting of selected high-quality air charter operators and aircraft that operate under the same stringent safety and service standards defined by Jet Aviation. “We wanted to set another industry benchmark,” said Jet Aviation’s Martin Bernegger, senior vice president and general manager of the company’s EMEA charter division. “The worldwide charter industry is highly fragmented, consisting of hundreds of providers with vastly different standards and procedures. Skylliance is an alliance of high quality air charter operators and aircraft working to stringent safety and service standards as defined by us.”
Before joining Skylliance, Jet Aviation will audit each operator, which must have its own procedures in place in accordance with the respective Civil Aviation Authorities. To ensure that the program delivers its promises and maintains the highest levels of quality, Jet Aviation said it will carry out annual audits on each member. Air charter operators wanting to enter the program will pay a one-time entrance fee and annual membership fees depending on size and number of aircraft while Jet Aviation provides the marketing and sales support.
