PrivateFly launches new season route pairings
An initial range of city pairs proved so popular with clients over the summer that PrivateFly has added autumn/winter destinations. Clients flying into and out of London get a guaranteed price upfront at a discount.
A guaranteed price upfront is one of the attractions of PrivateFly's City Pairs flights.

Private charter platform PrivateFly, a Directional Aviation company, is offering a new and extended list of discounted, fixed-price charter routes for the autumn and winter season. This follows the launch of its City Pairs offering earlier this year, which accounted for over 20 per cent of its European flights in the summer period.

According to PrivateFly, its City Pairs exclusives are 30 per cent lower than average on demand prices on the same or an equivalent aircraft. New route pairings from London include Amsterdam, Zurich, Luxembourg, Frankfurt and Barcelona, adding to existing destinations such as Paris, Geneva and Nice. Prices start from €4,500 one way between London and Paris on the six seat Nextant 400XTi, giving a person price of €750 if a six-strong group fly together. Available London airports are Luton, Farnborough, Biggin Hill, Stansted and Southend.

Longer range pairings on the Legacy 600 include Marrakech and Moscow, and in addition to London, there are routes to and from Paris, Geneva and Nice. These prices are available for flights departing before 31 March, 2020.

CEO Adam Twidell says: “As part of Directional Aviation's OneSky family, access to the family fleet enables us to offer these kinds of exclusives, alongside the wider market. Our initial range of City Pairs proved very popular with clients over the summer. Not only for the great price but for the certainty. On these routes we can provide a guaranteed price upfront and take out some of the steps in the supply chain which are usually required to confirm the quote. By committing to volumes, on routes that are operationally efficient, we can offer our City Pairs as a fixed, one way price upfront, with no ferry fees.”

He continues: “It's a bit like Expedia comparing all places to stay in Paris, but at the same time offering an exclusive they have negotiated with a particular hotel. Ultimately these aircraft and routes won't be right for everyone, but for clients who are a good fit, they won't find better prices anywhere else.”
