Monday, March 15th, 2010

The first airplanes to land in Haiti where general aviation business aircraft.  Many corporations lent the company airplane to help out with supplies.  A Navajo Chieftain,  the same type ABA flies, was one of the first to bring water and blankets to citizens in Haiti.  Another larger jet, a Challenger, brought workers and supplies.  It took a few days for the military and airlines to ramp up and gain FAA approval to operate into Haiti, but business aircraft were flying into to Port A Pince from smaller airports in the US almost right away.

Can’t Believe Charter Is Cheaper? Here’s Proof!

Posted April 6, 2009 by Michael J. Ryan

It’s Monday morning, April 6 at your office in Pontiac, MI. You just found out that three of you need to be in Canton, Ohio Wednesday April 8 for an important sales meeting. The client wants to meet at 2:00 PM and told you to expect to be there until 5:00. Here are your choices:

Driving: MapQuest shows it takes four hours to drive 233 miles each way. You’ll need to start at 9:00 AM to allow for a rest stop and a lunch break. The return trip will start at 5:00 PM when the meeting ends. You’ll get back to Pontiac at 10 PM. Total travel time 10 hours. This saves the most money but wastes the most time for all three travelers.

Airlines: It’s a good thing you checked Travelocity right away, because there were only a few non-stop airline seats left! Unfortunately, you’re buying the tickets at the last minute and pay full fare coach. You leave the office at 10:00 AM to drive to Detroit Metro, park, check in, go through airport security, and hike out to your gate. Your flight departs at 11:58 AM and arrives at 12:53 PM. You’ll need to kill an hour in Canton waiting for your meeting to start, so you might as well have lunch. When the meeting’s over, you can go out to dinner, because the return flight isn’t until 7:02 PM. The tickets cost a total of $1,713.60 for the three of you.

Charter: You drive over to Oakland County Airport for your charter flight on American Business Airways at 12:30 PM. All three of you had productive mornings in the office or calling on local clients. You’ll find a box lunch on board to eat on your one hour flight to the Canton-Akron Airport. Arriving at 1:30, your rental car pulls right up to the plane. You drive out of the airport five minutes after landing and head over to the client’s office. When the meeting ends, you head back to the plane and take off about 5:30 PM for the one hour flight to Oakland County. You’ll enjoy some light snacks and a cold beer on the flight home, discussing in complete privacy everyone’s comments from the successful sales meeting where you closed the biggest sale so far this quarter. Landing at 6:30, everyone heads home for a late dinner with their families. The cost was $1,524. Really!

Comparison

·    Driving wasted 15 business hours and 15 personal hours, and was the lowest cost.

·    Airlines wasted 9 business hours outbound and 9 personal hours on the return, and cost the most because you bought your tickets at the last minute, paying full fare coach. The combined airfare was $ 1,713.60.

·    Charter didn’t waste any time at all. And best of all, you saved $189.60 by flying privately on American Business Airways.

Does It Always Work Like That?

No, it does not. But anytime you find yourself paying full-fare coach, and two or more of you are going to the same place, give American Business Airways a call at 248.444.5202 for a price comparison…and don’t forget to compare the time savings, too!
