Private jet broker plans unit for ME buyers
Dubai, January 7, 2012
Private Jet Charter, a leading independent private jet charter broker and consultant that provides access to over 50,000 aircraft, has revealed plans to set up a counselling unit for customers interested in buying and selling private jets in the Middle East.
Private Jet Charter founder and chief executive Hugh Courtenay said: “We represent a wide range of aircraft owners in the global marketplace, where buying a private jet can be very challenging and entails many technical and business considerations.'
'Having been established for more than 20 years in the private jet business, we are extremely well positioned and qualified in helping these customers buy the right aircraft, representing the buyers in the negotiation process to guarantee that they get the best deal,' he noted.
'Owning a private jet is a large commitment and one not to be taken lightly, apart from the financial obligations, there are additional costs to take into consideration such as, the crew, maintenance, insurance and fuel,' Courtenay added.
The new division will advise clients on whether to buy, charter or partially own a private jet based on their actual needs and finances, said the expert.
According to Courtenay, owning a private jet is not always the right solution for some individuals or companies.
'Buying a private jet is a long and complex procedure, this is where our new service can help clients save time and a great deal of money. They offer both new and used private jets as in certain instances a used private jet is sometimes a better option than a brand new one.'
'Key benefits that the Private Jet Charter organisation offers customers is a 24 hour service round the year, qualified multilingual and professional staff, competitive quotations, advice and access to their unique CATS aircraft sourcing technology,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
