GrandView Aviation, a fast-growing Phenom 300 charter operator, will launch private charter services in the greater Los Angeles area in May 2021. Following its recently launched base in Boston, the company will place a Phenom 300 at Van Nuys airport in southern California. This marks the firm's eighth private jet location in the US; other nearby locations include Arizona and Colorado, giving GrandView coverage across the US southwest, in addition to its other service areas.
During 2020, Grandview doubled its fleet and is executing on its plan of national on-demand Phenom 300 charter services. The company not only provides private charter to high-net-worth individuals and companies but is also a provider of organ transplant team transportation. Since COVID, more travellers are flocking to private travel and the privacy and security it offers. GrandView is meeting this demand with a modern fleet of aircraft equipped with equally modern safety technology on board, plus comforts such as wi-fi.
“We believe California will be well served by our fleet as there is a lack of new, light jet aircraft than can handle longer-range missions like the Phenom 300 can,” says COO Jessie Naor. “Our aircraft can fly non-stop from Los Angeles to Chicago, and in very good wind conditions to Miami. This kind of range is incredible in a light jet; most fliers would need to upgrade to a midsize jet for these destinations.”
The new location brings value to clients enrolled in GrandView's Altitude Miles programme. Similar to traditional airline loyalty programmes, members earn miles on charter flights, which are redeemable for catering, flight credits and other amenities. The programme also offers utilisation of GrandView's flexible cancellation policy and empty leg specials. Initial membership tiers are complimentary, while the company does offer premium memberships that include hourly discounts on flights.
