Air Taxi Makes Sense and Cents
Business air taxi offers flexibility, including last-minute itinerary changes and the
ability to travel to multiple destinations in a single day. You go when you want

doing it in person enhances the competitive advantage.

part of the sales process. Many customers select their products and services based on the
total value delivered rather than the price alone. Nothing tells your story better than
your people and your facilities. Your sales success can hinge on getting the customer in
front of your operations, service and support people. Time and time again companies that
do this report outstanding rates of sales plus improved relationships with their
The bottom line is this: business aviation services are
routinely described by successful users as one of the most important tools for leveraging
