Recently, the Associated Press reported that little planes connecting the country’s small cities to the rest of the world are slowly being phased out due to the high cost of fuel. This trend adds to the many reasons private jet travel for business and pleasure has seen steady growth over the last few years.
The story indicates Delta, United Continental, and many other large airlines are expected to ground, dump and sell hundreds of smaller 50 seat or less jets in the next few years. This is a huge loss to many smaller cities that rely on these jets – they’ll be left with far fewer flights or no flights at all.
The Airport Council International reports that 27 small airports in the continental United States have lost service from name commercial airlines in the last two years. And more shutdowns are expected. Travelers in these cities that have lost airline service are forced to drive to larger cities, or take buses to larger airports. This is a time consuming and stressful situation for travelers.
Why Choose Private Jet Charter?
Here are some of many reasons private jet charter is growing:
Thousands of Airport Choices
Private jet charter flights get you where you want to go, when you want to go. Newport has access to over 4,000 aircrafts and helicopters in over 6,000 airports worldwide. Newport Jets can provide customers with exclusive security and adheres to the top industry standards in security requirements.
Private jet charter airplanes are much smaller than regular airplanes which allow the plane to fly faster than other larger airplanes.
No Airport Hassles
Airports these days can be a mess with crowds, long lines, and enhanced security checks. Security has been enhanced over the last years, with even more stringent checks appearing in the days following the raid on Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. TSA has added more searches and heightened security for commercial air travel. There are longer security lines and waiting times for most passengers flying out of major airports.
With private jet charter travel you can skip the hassles as there are no long lines for security checks, baggage or delayed flights.
Your Time is Valuable
In today’s world time is money. Private jet charter flights are efficient, fast and provide enhanced security for passengers.
At Newport Jets, we specialize in private jet flights for our customers; we know that no two trips are alike. International or domestic, one-way or multi-stop, we will create a solution tailored to fit any private jet travel need.

Breaking News: Newports Jets CEO Alex Resnik talks about his jet charter company’s support of Art Basel Miami and the growth of Newport Jets in the newspaper Miami Today. The article can be found here.
Globe’s private jets swoop in for Art Basel Miami Beach
By Rachel Tannenbaum
Private jets are the ultimate symbol of opulence and luxury for many, and with Art Basel Miami Beach and the holiday high season, private jets serving Miami are fueling up for trips around the world and back.
”We are very busy this time of year with Art Basel,” said Andres F. Arboleda, managing partner of Privé Jets.
”People come from Europe, South America, all over the world,” Mr. Arboleda said. “It is a great way to promote international tourism.”
Although NetJet, which is sponsoring the 10th anniversary of Art Basel Miami Beach, does a large amount of business during Art Basel, the company also does well year round. NetJet flew more than 5,000 flights in and out of Miami in the past year, said Elizabeth Wise, manager of public relations.
”Miami is one of NetJets’ top ten domestic destinations,” Ms. Wise said.
Like Art Basel, the holidays are a time when there’s more business, Mr. Arboleda said.
”During the holidays, New Yorkers are coming to Miami to get out of the cold, as well as Europeans,” Mr. Arboleda said. “We get quite busy.”
Although Privé Jets gets lots of booking in advanced and last minute, he said, many wait to book privately until commercial flights are filled.
”Last-minute booking isn’t an issue. It happens a lot with bad weather,” Mr. Arboleda said. “Sometimes flights are canceled, and we will drive people to different airports and fly them where they need to go.”
South Florida is a different market because it doesn’t get as cold as other locales, Mr. Arboleda said. Privé Jets is a true global provider, he said, not just for South Florida.
”Snowbirds leave Miami and vice versa,” he said. “It offers a lot of international tourism.”
Alex Reznik, CEO of NewportJets, said business has taken off a bit since last year, but since the company is based in New York an issue is that people are going straight from Europe to Miami, then to the Bahamas and different islands.
”Miami and Fort Lauderdale are two major connections to travel to the islands, South America, really anywhere,” Mr. Reznik said.
Between the meltdown of the mortgage market and troubles with the financial market in Europe, Mr. Reznik said, it has hurt business.
”We are taking things one week to another. Things might get better,” Mr. Reznik said. “We are hopeful that it will pick up.”
NewportJet is a full-service private jet service unlike other services, Mr. Reznik said, because it offers a pay-and-go service.
”Prices vary from trips, times and demands of the clients,” Mr. Reznik said. “We cater to the needs of the clients at the time, and whatever it might be, we try to please them.”
For business travelers there is one name in jet charter that is relied upon time and again to meet corporate travel needs. That name is Cessna. With its light jet models and comfortable cabins Cessna private jets deliver the ultimate in business travel comfort and convenience.
Though for travelers familiar with the brand it may seem like they have formula for business travel comfort down but Cessna continually strives to improve its line of private jets, tweaking and adjusting and constantly raising the bar.
Introducing the Cessna Citation M2
That’s why even though the Cessna Citation line of business jets have long met the private jet needs of corporations the world over, the company recently announced its latest offering: the light business jet, Citation M2. According to Cessna the jet fills the gap between the Citation Mustang and the Citation CJ family.
The newest addition to the Cessna Citation family adds yet another choice for clients looking for private jet options. With features like a GarminG3000 avionics and an engine similar to the Citation CJ series, the Citation M2 combines the familiar with the cutting edge. An all-new cabin design promises to wow with room for two crew members and six passengers.
The latest Cessna private jet is big news for business travelers and private jet charter companies but they’ll have to wait. Though excitement is building about the release of this new private jet, most people will have to wait anxiously to experience it.
The Citation M2 will have its initial flight in the first half of 2012 followed by FAA certification in the first half of 2013. Alas, deliveries won’t take place until the second half of 2013.
There was a recent sneak peak of the new aircraft. A mockup of the cabin was on display at Cessna’s exhibit in the Las Vegas Convention Center during the 64th NBAA Annual meeting and Convention in October.
The Citation M2 will soon join the family of private jets that currently includes the Citation X, Citation Sovereign, Citation X LS+, Citation CJ4, Citation CJ3, Citation CJ2+, Citation Mustang and the Citation CJ1+.
Whether you’re on the edge of your seat awaiting the release of the Citation M2 or you are content for now with Cessna’s current options, you know that private jet travel is the way to go. Newport Jets realizes that too and strives to make its private jet charter experience the best of its kind for business travelers.
Private jet charter is increasingly becoming the preferred option for business travelers because it puts the traveler in control. Travelers can avoid the long lines at airports, there are no baggage fees and delays are nearly never necessary. There are no schedules to adhere to but your own and you get to fly in quiet comfort. It’s nearly unbeatable. Discover all the reasons to fly private jet charter by visiting the Newport Jets at www.newportjets.com
Tell a friend you are going to Patagonia or Nepal or Madagascar and they may tell you “I’ve done that.” But if your travel was arranged by Brown + Hudson you can gleefully reply, “No, you haven’t.”
That’s because Brown + Hudson travel is extremely personal. Every itinerary they create is unique to the last detail. There is no template used. Each travel experience is created from a series of personal questions designed to discover the intricate details of what might make your experience truly extraordinary. Brown + Hudson calls this level of customization “truly bespoke,” because each trip is handcrafted—like a fine suit.
Founding partner Philippe Brown was a world traveler before Brown + Hudson and had many years experience working in the luxury active travel industry designing, guiding and managing trips around the globe. It wasn’t until he came across William Henry Hudson, author of Idle Days in Patagonia, that the concept of highly personalized, truly bespoke travel became a mission. With that mission at the core of Brown + Hudson travelers the world over are experiencing destinations in a way no one else has, or ever will.
Brown + Hudson designs travel experiences for travelers who yearn for the one-of-a-kind experience that rises above the ordinary.
1. Have you in your personal travel experience, ever had an itinerary go wrong or appear to be not what you expected? And if so how did you deal with it?
One of our key points of difference is that we always manage every journey from the beginning until the end – either through our own guides leading the trip directly, or through our staff at the office managing from afar. It is perfectly normal for our clients to change their minds or arrangements at a moment’s notice. This is neither a challenge, or an obstacle, as it provides an opportunity to shine, surprise and delight. We are bespoke and hands-on in the planning and delivery of each trip.
For example, over breakfast on a recent cycling trip in the middle of nowhere in New Zealand, a client quietly mentioned to his friend over breakfast that he would rather play golf than cycle that day. Our guide overheard this and discovered the nearest golf course was a short 45-minute flight away, and returned to the breakfast table having reserved a tee-time, equipment and caddie. Not to mention, he found a helicopter to take the client there in time.
2. What about a travel experience makes it memorable or special? Certainly the specifics vary from person to person, but what is the intangible that makes it memorable?
Many companies in the travel industry call an itinerary ‘bespoke’ when they string together some destinations, properties and activities based on a client’s wishes…when essentially it is the same packaged itinerary they have sold for years. Our approach goes above and beyond this, which is the definition of truly bespoke travel. A lot of it is in the intangibles, the insights we leverage to apply incredibly personal touches. This can only come from first knowing our clients very well, secondly knowing each destination(s) in detail and thirdly, of course, being creative, diligent and detail-obsessed in planning and delivering the journey.
For instance, in crafting a recent honeymoon to South Africa we found out that the groom was preparing for a marathon to take place shortly after the trip. We built training possibilities into the journey and had each property draw up running routes corresponding to his assumed distance needs. Finally, we connected with a sports science academic in Cape Town who had written the bible of marathon and ultra-marathon running and asked him to craft a mini-running guide for training in the wilderness. We also arranged a meeting between the two later in the journey in Cape Town so our client could get the latest running know-how directly from the source.
Often our clients don’t know we are adding these personal touches to the journey, as each element of our trips seem to fit in naturally.
When our client’s needs or the group size dictates that the trip should be lead by a Brown + Hudson guide then the opportunities for intangibles and special experiences are even more plentiful. Guides can apply touches we have planned directly, or come up with their own spontaneously; as they learn more about the clients they are travelling with.
3. There must be some locations that are often requested. How do you resist the temptation to fall into a cookie-cutter approach when you’re designing a trip over and over for the same location?
The destination is only the canvas on which we paint. Our clients and their wishes, dreams and preferences define the colors and the image. Sure, some locations are more popular than others, but because they are popular, our knowledge and our relationships here go even further than in other destinations. Bringing a lot business to these places actually makes it easier for us to do things differently every time, simply because we are continuously learning about a place.
4. What has been your most outlandish request and how did you meet those expectations?
We wouldn’t consider any requests outlandish. Anything is possible (as long as it’s within our ethical standards).
Recently some clients showed an interest in travel to Afghanistan’s Wakhan corridor, so we went there and researched it. Others have recently expressed an interest to cycle on the ice in Antarctica, and we will make it happen.
5. Is there anywhere considered too dangerous? Do you ever dissuade people from traveling to certain locations?
We take our clients’ safety very seriously. We bear foreign office advisories in mind and then look at the reality of the local situation. If in any doubt we involve political and security risk professionals for another perspective on levels of risk in any destination. We inform our clients accordingly, but the decision is always theirs. Naturally, we will not carry out any journeys where we are not comfortable with regard to our clients’ (and our staff’s) safety.
6. During the interview process with your clients have you ever uncovered things that the traveler was surprised to consider? Most people tend to think in the box are they pleasantly surprised that something you suggested really appeals to them when they never would have thought it would?
We pride ourselves in identifying where our clients’ obvious and not so obvious interests, dreams and wishes lie, and then leveraging these to create personal experiences they wouldn’t have thought of. Because we go way beyond the norm in the travel industry, this tends to happen all the time and the initiative usually comes from us – after all this is why our clients come to us.
On a recent trip in Africa, for a client with an interest in history and politics, we recommended a meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Our client agreed but thought we were joking. In fact, he and his newly betrothed wife met the Archbishop last week in Cape Town and had their recent marriage blessed. A great highlight for an already exceptional honeymoon.
7. How much weight do you carry in the decision making? For instance if there is a place you absolutely know your client would love but they may be hesitant, how much do you persuade?
We will always give a client an accurate reflection of why a destination, property or experience could be appropriate for them. But the choice is ultimately theirs; after all we promise them everything they want and nothing that they don’t. Generally clients trust our judgment and recommendations, but if for whatever reason they want to do something differently, we will make it possible.
8. What percent of your clientele are regulars and how many are looking for the trip of a lifetime—something to wipe off their bucket list?
This year we have benefitted from a large number of new clients commissioning Brown + Hudson for the first time. Prior to that I would say that 75% of our business was repeat business, but this year that number is down to about 50%, thanks to new business.
The ‘trip of a lifetime’ scenario applies mainly to our honeymooners, or perhaps a multi-generational family trip, where the grandparents might invite everyone on such a journey – it’s rare to get the whole family together.
9. That being said, who is your typical client, describe them.
Our clients come from different places around the world, backgrounds and professions. They do have in common an attitude that emphasizes the value of time – and particularly personal time.
Whenever they use personal time, they want to know they are making the most of it. They want extraordinary experiences catered to their specific needs, no matter how particular, impossible or unusual that might seem. They like to feel that their experiences are theirs and theirs alone.
10. What drew you to travel in the first place?
The individual motivations and backgrounds of our team in London and our guides around the planet differ greatly. But we are all a rather curious and restless bunch who like to be on the go, who cherish discovery and connecting with people. Some of us are into sports and discover the world on foot or by bike, some are culture hounds with degrees in history or art, and others love nothing more than nature. Travel connects the dots for all of us.
11. Have you ever considered settling in one of the places you’ve visited?
Everyone at Brown + Hudson has spent time living overseas. Our staff in our London office has lived in such diverse places as Vietnam, Morocco, Patagonia, Uganda, Canada, Scotland, Switzerland, Mexico and France. However, we are probably not really the ‘settling’ types.
12. Are there some locations that are requested more often?
Currently the most popular destinations are: Bhutan, India, South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana, France, Turkey, Italy and Vietnam. We have also seen an increase in interest in China and Argentina.
13. What is your most often heard comment from people after their first experience with a Brown + Hudson travel experience?
Difficult to generalize, but usually it’s a form of “you spoiled us”. We also like it when, on a trip our guides overhear “let’s start planning our next trip while we are still all together…”
14. Everyone affiliated with Brown + Hudson knows several languages, have you ever started out talking to someone in the wrong language? How do you switch back between them?
Yes in Iceland. Philippe tried to get a waiter’s attention in a Rejikavic restaurant in Vietnamese saying “Em Oi!”(having just returned from Hanoi). It got the waiter’s attention but not understanding. Switching back happens rather automatically at that point (together with blushing ever so slightly).
To tell you the truth, most of us have grown up bi or tri-lingual and are used to thinking and speaking in different languages. Even with our own families we find ourselves switching back and forth a lot (which can be irritating to some, so we have reigned it in).
15. Is your dream trip/experience still out there or have you experienced it yet?
While we’ve all had the good fortune of having travelled a great deal, our dream experience will always be out there, waiting in our imagination for the right moment or the perhaps the right client…

To Reach Simple Life of Summer Camp, Lining Up for Private Jets
Gov. Paul LePage of Maine happened to be waiting for his flight at Augusta State Airport on a recent Saturday when the weekend crush began.
A turboprop Pilatus PC-12 carrying Melissa Thomas, her daughter, her daughter’s friend and a pile of lacrosse equipment took off for their home in Connecticut, following the girls’ three-week stay at Camp All-Star in nearby Kents Hill, Me. Shortly after, a Cessna Citation Excel arrived, and a mother, a father and their 13-year-old daughter emerged carrying a pink sleeping bag and two large duffel bags, all headed to Camp Vega in Fayette.
“Love it, love it, love it,” Mr. LePage said of the private-plane traffic generated by summer camps. “I wish they’d stay a week while they’re here. This is a big business.”
For decades, parents in the Northeast who sent their children to summer camp faced the same arduous logistics of traveling long distances to remote towns in Maine, New Hampshire and upstate New York to pick up their children or to attend parents’ visiting day.
Now, even as the economy limps along, more of the nation’s wealthier families are cutting out the car ride and chartering planes to fly to summer camps. One private jet broker, Todd Rome of Blue Star Jets, said his summer-camp business had jumped 30 percent over the last year…. Read Full Story
Richard Branson’s stunning private island, Makepeace, at Noosa on Australia’s Sunshine Coast just opened its doors for private lease for the first time. The natural heart shaped, 25 acre island was purchased by Branson in 2003 with the goal of turning it into an eco-retreat for his Virgin Airline staffers. The Balinese-style island retreat can accommodate up to 22 guests in either the Bali House or three other villas (bures). Island leasing starts at around $8,000 per night.
Makepeace: The Ultimate Private Luxury
Makepeace Island is located in the Noosa River with a design created for ultimate privacy. In announcing the news the island will be available to rent Branson said, “When neither Brett nor myself are visiting Makepeace, we will make the island and its facilities available for others to enjoy the tranquility of what is a very special place.” One of the goals in renting the luxury private retreat is to bring visitors to the area to boost the local economy which was hit hard in recent years. “Now I’m encouraging people to come and see this beautiful part of the world for themselves,” Branson said.
Stunning Balinese Tropical Island Style
Guests at Makepeace can take full advantage of spa facilities, tennis court, theatre, lagoon pool, large indoor bar, and office facilities. In addition, the Makepeace team will be on hand to offer suggestions on activities locally and on the island. Most guests renting the island are looking for relaxation and a place to escape and take it easy. The beautifully decorated retreat is designed to be calming, including the tranquil and beautiful volcanic boulder bathtubs, along with antiques and furniture from Java, Bali and other locations in Indonesia.
In tropical island style includes a 500,000 liter lagoon pool, beach areas and nature walks. The island also has a large two-story Balinese open aired wantilan, pavilion and spa.
How to Reach: Makepeace Island is near the Sunshine Coast and easily accessible by riverboat.

For a truly unique and luxury private jet charter excursion to and from London starting this month, London’s National Gallery has teamed up with the luxury Orient Express travel company to offer – ‘The Art of Travel’ – that combines luxury travel and fine art.
Luxury travelers will love these new luxury art/train tours featuring more than a dozen new itineraries launching this spring as they experience a tour with some of the world’s top art and the places that inspired them. Tours range from a three-day/two-night journey between London and Bath to a seven-day/six-night tour between London and Venice. Seven examine the classic works and figures of the Impressionist movement; four focus on the great works of Italian artists including Canaletto, Bellini, Titian, and Veronese; and two study the collections of the newly reopened Holburne Museum in Bath.
The tours begin at the National Gallery, where a specialist introduces a selection of masterpieces that will later be matched with the places and landmarks depicted within them. For instance, a viewing of Monets in London is followed by a trip to the artist’s home at Giverny; an immersion into the work of Canaletto is followed by roaming the very same canals and piazzas of Venice. Guests travel through art history in style aboard both the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express and British Pullman, accompanied by the National Gallery specialist.
Impressions of Paris is a five-day/four-night tour through the life of Monet, taking guests from the country’s capital of Paris to the artist’s country home in Giverny.
• Start with a tour of the works of Monet and his contemporaries at the National Gallery (and perhaps wake up early enough the next day to see the Thames at Westminster – a scene the artist captured during his stays at the Savoy Hotel in London).
• Depart for Paris the following morning aboard the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Two of the train’s art deco carriages were already in glamorous service when Claude Monet was producing his final masterpieces.
• Visit the artist’s home at Giverny and the old churchyard in the Normandy village where he is buried.
• On returning to Paris, enjoy a wonderful selection of impressionist works at the Musée de l’Orangerie des Tuileries and the hidden gem, the Musée Marmottan-Monet.
• Accommodation includes the Goring Hotel in London and Hotel San Regis in Paris.
• This tour operates on April 9, May 7, June 25, July 27, August 24, September 24, and October 22, 2011
The Venice of Canaletto is a seven-day/six-night tour that follows in the footsteps of the artist forever tied to the canal-strewn city.
• Start in London at the Goring Hotel before a guided-visit at the National Gallery and a private dinner in the gallery’s Trafalgar Room.
• Spend four days exploring the city with a National Gallery expert along with a local guide, seeing sights like the Doge’s Palace and Villa Pisani before returning to London.
• Accommodation includes the Goring Hotel, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, and Hotel Cipriani.
• This trip departs on April 9, October 8, and October 22, 2011
Venetian Painters is a six-day/five-night tour that explores the works of artists Giovanni Bellini, Titian, and Veronese.
• Begin with a tour of the permanent Venetian Masters at the National Gallery before flying to Venice.
• Feel the spirit of the Italian Renaissance by viewing the pieces in the buildings for which they were originally commissioned.
• Spend three full days exploring the Doge’s Palace, lunching under a Tiepolo ceiling, and being shown the hidden shopping sites by the local guide before boarding the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express for a luxurious ride back to London.
• Accommodation includes the Goring Hotel, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, and Hotel Cipriani.
• This trip departs on April 30, 2011
