If so, you're not the only one! The majority of 135 operators we talk to have no idea what Part 380 is and what it can do for them. That’s mostly because operators have built their business on one service and one service only: chartering an entire aircraft. It’s a plan that works, because there are always going to be people who want an entire jet to themselves. However, Part 380 – when done right – will create immense growth for operators and the private aviation industry.
That’s because Part 380 allows more than just one service and one price point. Sounds simple enough, but the implications for growing the industry and creating greater profits is enormous.
Through our 380-approved software, for example, members still have the option to charter an entire jet, but they have other options too: They can view and purchase single seats on private aircraft, crowdsource flights to create cost-sharing, request regularly scheduled shuttle flights from operators, and be invited on exclusive “journey” excursions. All the luxury, ease, and comfort of private, but now with affordability for many more people.
As an operator, you might be thinking, OK, what’s the catch? As far as we (and our brilliant team of industry-wide respected lawyers) can tell, there isn’t one. Yes, this is new territory, but our program addresses all existing legal concerns and is flexible enough to meet any new ones that may come up. For example, our software has built-in mechanisms to help make the distinction between 135 and 380 flights clear. Combined with our thorough training for operator staff, there is almost zero chance for error.
We also have all the resources in place to make 380 legal and practical for our partnering operators.
As a company, we will stay on the leading edge of 380, ensuring that it is as viable a path for growth and success in the future as it is right now.
