OneSky Empowers Private Jet Travel at Substantial Savings This Holiday Season
Use of Flights Known as "Empty Legs" Finding Niche Among Flexible, Savvy Travelers
MANCHESTER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 12, 2006 -- "Right now, there is still enough time to
book your holiday private jet travel," says Justin Sullivan, VP of Sales at OneSky Jets. "Next week will be a
different story, as private jet availability for 'peak travel days' tightens up. But, if you live in Miami, Ft.
Lauderdale or Boca Raton, and want to travel north for the holidays, we can give you an almost unbelievable
This is the reverse benefit of OneSky Jets' new search system that aggregates hundreds of empty legs
(empty legs are flights where jets are flying empty after having delivered a customer, or are on their way to
pick up a customer).
"OneSky Jets estimates that over 40 percent of the private jets flying customers south for Christmas will
return empty, providing significant opportunities for those living in the south who want to fly north for the
holidays," explains Sullivan.
Following is a snapshot of available jets with "empty legs" through Dec. 31 that is suggestive of what may be
available through OneSky Jets:
Origin Destination Aircraft Traditional Empty Leg
------ ----------- -------- ----------- ---------
Beach, FL White Plains, NY Lear Jet 35 $15,671 $8,253
Ft. Lauderdale, FL Teterboro, NJ Beechjet 400A $13,954 $8,915
Boca Raton, FL Atlantic City, NJ Lear Jet 35 $14,361 $9,792
Burbank, CA West Palm Beach Challenger 601 $62,433 $35,561
"Rather than flying one way empty, it is in the interest of private jet providers to offer substantial discounts to
attract travelers in an effort to monetize each leg," explains Greg Johnson, OneSky's CEO. "But as the
market is fragmented, until now most empty legs have gone unused.
"OneSky's new search engine fills the vacuum as it empowers customers to instantly search, compare and
price the inventory of empty legs in real time," says Johnson. "While we offer empty legs generated through
our internal bookings, we also aggregate the supply from our 300+ operating partners, thereby providing our
customers with access to hundreds of empty leg opportunities."
OneSky's searches of empty legs are in real time, but the snapshots in this press release are not a
guarantee that these prices will be available when customers call. For current prices, travelers can browse to
