Private Jet Charter to expand in Mideast
Dubai, November 10, 2013
Private Jet Charter (PJC), one of the world's largest independent private jet charter brokers, has unveiled ambitious plans to expand its market share in Europe and the Middle East.
Hugh Courtenay, founder and chief executive, PJC said: “The Middle East holds a larger potential for private jet business compared to other more developed regions, due mainly to the fact that the service industry in this region is still developing. We are pleased with the growing interest in our air charter services here, reinforcing our position as one of the Middle East's leading private aircraft charter brokers.”
“PJC has a network of offices in the UK, Nice and significant presence in the Middle East, through a busy base in Dubai and strong presence in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. The organisation also has offices in the key charter hubs of Moscow and Florida,” he added.
Ross Kelly, managing director for Middle East, PJC said: “With investments increasingly migrating to emerging markets, traditional business hubs are losing ground. PJC is proud of its strengths in these promising markets, backed by an unrivalled track record.”
Private jet charter has become increasingly popular in recent years as more people choose to bypass security hassles and exasperating check-in procedures at airports by opting for a private jet.
PJC has business clients who fly privately a regular basis, while there are others who book once or twice a year. The company’s client base is very varied – musicians, business people, moguls and wealthy individuals, actors or news reporters needing to get to a news flashpoint. The company also arranges flights for football teams, sports clubs, fashion designers and DJs.
Kelly said: “PJC’s business has been built over several years of listening to clients’ preferences. Our team has a passion for surpassing expectations and will go to great lengths to tailor each global jet to the client's specific itinerary, timings and budget.”
PJC’s sophisticated state-of-the-art aircraft sourcing technology -- Computerised Aircraft Tracking System (CATS) -- enables the company’s aviation consultants to source available aircraft at the click of a mouse, by aircraft type, number of seats, year of manufacture and from any location in the world.
Specific benefits that PJC offers its customers include 24-hour service round the year, multilingual and expert staff, competitive free quotations and advice, unique aircraft sourcing technology, flight watch monitoring on all executive air charter flights.
PJC is an ISO 9002 - certified company with 23 years of leadership in the aviation field. It is a respected provider of VIP aircraft, executive jets, helicopter charter, corporate airliners and dedicated medical evacuation aircraft.
