Launches PA Privilege Programme

Private jet hire platform offers new support and reward programme for executive assistants-

London, United Kingdom, September 09, 2011 --(, Europe’s leading online booking platform for private jet charter, has announced the launch of its PA Privilege Programme, a dedicated support service for executive PAs. The programme has been launched in response to the specific needs of the executive PA sector, such as speed of service and 24-hour support. To celebrate the launch, the company is offering a magnum of champagne to the winner of a free prize draw.

The service gives executive assistants a range of quick and user-friendly online tools for private jet hire including: instant cost estimates for budget planning; a tool to pinpoint closest airfields; images and advice on aircraft choices; and dedicated 24-hour VIP support. Quotes are received rapidly from a global network of over 7000 accredited aircraft, with flights able to be arranged for takeoff in as little as two hours.

To enter the free prize draw and become a member, executive PAs need to visit and use the Quick Quote calculator to find out the estimated cost of a private jet flight from London Biggin Hill to Nice. In addition, every PA who joins the programme will receive a range of further benefits including a luxury hamper reward each time they book a private jet or helicopter flight.

Carol Cork, marketing director at PrivateFly, comments: “We recognise the specific needs of the executive PA such as exceptional response speed and service; transparent pricing; and 24-hour support. And, as their role can so often be focussed on making arrangements for others, we are delighted to offer one lucky PA a magnum of champagne in our prize draw – which demonstrates just how quickly and easily you can get a cost estimate using our Quick Quote calculator.

“Private aircraft charter can prove both cost and time-efficient for multi-leg business trips, corporate events or staff incentives. It can save hours of wasted travel time, reducing the need for overnight stays – and offers full flexibility if meetings overrun or plans change. Our PA Privilege Programme is free to join and designed to make arranging private charter as seamless and simple as possible for the executive PA, with the confidence to know they have compared the market for the best possible prices from over 2700 accredited operators.”
