For those of you reaping the rewards of the e and m-commerce boom, Air Partner, a world leading aircraft charter provider, has unveiled the first multi-lingual real-time iPhone app for private jet availability globally.
"As the aviation industry's only holder of a Royal Warrant, we wanted to further demonstrate our commitment to delivering excellence by raising the bar on iPhone private jet applications. Our multi-cultural app demonstrates our ability to keep pace with the needs of travellers in this international, fast-moving digital age," said David Macdonald, Director of Sales for Air Partner Private Jets.
The app is free to download – which should appeal to the Queen – and is available in seven key languages - English, French, Russian, German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. The language displayed is determined by the settings on a user's iPhone. A choice of 36 currencies is available in the cost calculator option.
Business and leisure travellers interested in flying by private jet have fingertip access to thousands of aircraft worldwide by searching for 'Air Partner' or 'private jets' in Apple's App Store. Users can obtain an estimated price based on their chosen one-way or return routing, the number of passengers and travel date(s). Search results also display the flight time, plus images and details about the aircraft offered (aircraft available range from very light jets seating four passengers to heavy jets seating 16). A GPS airport search facility and a favourite airport save function are optional.
Our app is comprehensive, appealing, and fast and easy to use," added David Macdonald. "It's the global private jet concierge in your pocket, the perfect travel tool that will get you to where you need to be, day or night, wherever you are and whenever you want to fly. Users can be assured of receiving a personal service as soon as they forward a flight request to our experienced and efficient charter teams."
UK-based Air Partner, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, has an in-house 24/7 office-based operations division and 20 offices globally. It is the aviation industry's only holder of a Royal Warrant from HM Queen Elizabeth II, as Supplier of Aircraft Charter, and organises private aviation services for industry, commerce, governments and individuals worldwide.
