PlaneClear Reports Outstanding 1st Quarter 2012 Performance

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PlaneClear, the dynamic private aviation company that is changing the industry, announced extremely strong performance in all facets of its business for the first quarter of 2012; including revenue, international and domestic flight activity and new client growth. The company is poised to drive continued growth with the introduction of the PlaneClear Debit Card, an innovative program catering to private jet travelers. The announcement was made by James Chitty, President of New York City-based PlaneClear.

“RA Travel focuses on meeting the unique lifestyle demands of our high-profile clientele and we seek out partners such as PlaneClear that share the same dedication, professionalism and expertise in regard to high-quality travel”

“PlaneClear’s accelerated growth is a clear indicator that there is both a need and a demand for client-centric private aviation solutions that are delivered with integrity and dependability,” said Mr. Chitty. “The introduction of the PlaneClear Debit Card allows us to continue to offer our business and leisure clients access to the most cost-beneficial options, coupled with an unprecedented level of transparency to make informed decisions with no surprises. I have no doubts that we will be able to continue to build upon our successes.”

With its strong first quarter results, PlaneClear has continued to build upon the substantial growth it has experienced since launching in 2008. From January 1st through March 31st, 2012, PlaneClear’s revenues increased by more than 20% over the same period the preceding year. Additionally, PlaneClear reported a 40% increase in flight activity from the first quarter of 2011 to the first quarter of 2012. Most significantly, the private jet company saw a 200% increase in international flights amongst US-based clients over the same period. PlaneClear’s growth and increased flight activity during the first quarter of 2012 is largely attributable to the company’s 55% increase in new clients.

“RA Travel focuses on meeting the unique lifestyle demands of our high-profile clientele and we seek out partners such as PlaneClear that share the same dedication, professionalism and expertise in regard to high-quality travel,” said Dominick Aiello Jr., President of RA Travel, a leading high-end New York-based travel management company catering to corporate executives, celebrities, families and individuals for more than 30 years. “Allowing for accurate and informed decision making, PlaneClear provides our customers with first class service without compromising productivity, safety or comfort.”

In addition, funds deposited to the PlaneClear Debit Card never expire and are fully refundable.

PlaneClear was created in 2008 to bridge the gap in available information between the private aviation client and the operators who exercise control of their charter services. Experienced corporate teams put together the best solutions and custom programs with a focus on efficiency, comfort and, above all else, safety, ensuring a surprise–free experience throughout the booking process. PlaneClear provides research and evaluation of each and every operator, aircraft, pilot and crew through its strategic partnership with Wyvern Aviation Safety Intelligence. In addition, each client’s custom criteria is catalogued in order to ensure operators, aircraft and crews meet their specific requirements. Prior to each flight, PlaneClear confirms the qualifications of each crewmember (type, ratings, medical, and training) and provides clients with a PASS report, ensuring that their standards are met for the trip.
