Virgin Charter, a full service online booking tool for charter flights on private jets, and Vacation.com, the 5,100 member agency consortia, announced a partnership making Virgin Charter the charter air solution for Vacation.com. Virgin Charter will offer Vacation.com members a complete online solution to manage clients’ private jet charter needs. This includes a dedicated Virgin Charter toll-free number for 24/7 customer service by Virgin Charter Advisors.
“Vaction.com and Virgin Charter are a perfect fit: we both deliver the very best customer service and experience,” said Scott Duffy, founder and CEO of Virgin Charter. “We look forward to working closely with the Vacation.com travel professionals to meet their clients’ private jet needs. With custom tools enabling them to compare quotes from multiple operators, provide clients with detailed information on the safety and quality of the aircraft and operator, manage post-flight reconciliation and more, we will make the entire process seamless and efficient.”
“Our members are always searching for the perfect solution for their clients. By partnering with Virgin Charter, Vacation.com has provided our members with a private jet solution that connects them to operators around the country who are eager to provide a valuable service,” noted Steve Tracas, president and CEO of Vacation.com.
Through the Virgin Charter Marketplace, Vacation.com members will receive multiple quotes for each trip from hundreds of high-quality operators throughout the U.S. providing access to more than 1,000 aircraft of all plane types. Virgin Charter said it selects only operators that represent the highest standards in safety, all of which are audited for safety by independent, internationally recognized third parties.
In addition, Virgin Charter said it hired JD Power and Associates to create the industry's first Quality Rating Program providing travel professionals with information about the quality of the operator so they, together with their clients, can make more informed decisions.
