(KALAMAZOO, MI) —June 2015: RAI Jets, a Michigan-based private aircraft charter company, has partnered with Chicagoland Aviation at the Romeoville/Lewis University Airport near Chicago to provide “Chicago Land Jet Service”; a convenient and time-efficient alternative to commercial airline travel between and ChicagoLand and the rest of the world.
“Our expansion into the Chicago market is a testament to the trend that we are seeing. As businesses grow, private transportation is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity to get more done in a shorter period of time,” said David Riley (Director of Operations), “Charter flights offer the opportunity to visit multiple cities on one day, and be home in time for dinner.”
The market for charter jet service is expected to increase through 2020 according to IBISWorld, and RAI Jets / Chicagoland Aviation is experiencing this rising trend. “Charter flights have an unquestionable value to companies,” said Riley. “They are an investment in improved efficiency, the ability to increase one-on-one time with clients and raise employee morale by decreasing travel time and offering greater comfort during travel.”
Riley gives the example of one client that used to send the entire executive team to visit two of their plants which were a six-hour drive apart. To Drive, the entire trip took three days. The company now charters through their new affiliate in the Chicago area and the flight time is a little over an hour. Plus, the team can return on the same day. “Companies are beginning to realize that every minute their executives spend waiting in an airport is time lost from company productivity,” he said.
Clients also appreciate the freedom from commercial travel that charter travel provides; for example, being able to drive right up to their aircraft and board at their leisure, without long lines for security, baggage check-in or surprise delays and cancellations.
RAI Jets has access to over 5,000 airports nationwide and serves international destinations as well with an impressive fleet of aircraft to suit any company’s passenger needs. In flight, business teams can stay productive by conducting meetings in privacy and comfort, or take their sales force to a destination venue for a company golf outing.
The charter service offered out of Chicago through the RAI Jet Chicagoland Jet Charter Service also offers a luxury concierge-style service from the runway to the final destination. Their unique service includes little extras like valet parking upon departure and car detailing while the client is in flight. The first-class experience continues on board the aircraft, where the client will enjoy plenty of privacy and legroom.
