Magellan Jets Launches an International Private Jet Search iPhone App: Search, Book and Sign for a Trip in Minutes on Your iPhone or iPad

Leading International Private Jet Company Launches the Heavily Anticipated iPhone App, Which Quickly Provides Real-Time Pricing and Books Trip Requests in Minutes; Making It the Ultimate Business Tool for Flying Privately

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 30, 2011) - Magellan Jets, a leading aircraft charter broker, announces the launch of its Private Jet Search iPhone application for private jet bookings. For years, people have been able to search for commercial flights on a variety of websites, making travel that much more convenient and cost effective. For the reasonable price of $4.99, private jet travelers can download the app through iTunes. The app allows users to search, book and sign for a charter in a matter of minutes from the convenience of their iPhone or iPad anytime, anywhere. Magellan Jets recognizes the need for more flexibility and accessibility in the market of private jet travel and this app allows for instant quoting, linked to live market information and thousands of aircraft and airports worldwide.

The Private Jet Search app is truly a business tool which executives can take advantage of without needing any assistance in making their private travel arrangements. While this is the case, it is available for business and pleasure alike. Travelers can search both one way and round trip options based on their desired destination, departure/return date, aircraft option and passenger count.

Once this information is entered, the app uses real-time technology to pull up every aircraft available, along with the competitive pricing. This innovative search engine cuts the time it takes to search for aircraft availability, while adding the ease of portability and anytime access.

Due to the fact that this is an international app, there is a currency converter available to those who are flying outside of the U.S. High-resolution interior and exterior photos are provided for each aircraft as well, and may be viewed on the flight details page. The estimated flight time and any fuel stops are also shown, giving the client the full scope of what the trip will entail.

The Private Jet Search app also features a GPS- based search to help find the nearest airport. In addition, customers can view the trip leg through Google Maps. The application allows for personalized requests to be sent to Magellan Jets regarding the requested trip, which will be carried out by a dedicated Magellan Jets charter specialist, available 24/7/365.

The level of personalization does not stop there. A list of favorite airports can be saved to streamline the process, which will save customers' valuable time searching. In addition to this practical solution, there is an ingenious "tip a friend" function which allows customers the opportunity to find a flight and send the option to their friend so that they can see the same aircraft.

Because Magellan Jets does not own or operate aircraft, we are able to recommend the best positioned aircraft on each and every mission for our clients. We take great pride in providing the best value to our clients using technology to locate the right aircraft from Magellan Jets' accredited aircraft network. All approved vendors in our network are FAA Part 135 air taxi operators, and are also required to adhere to safety requirements set forth by Wyvern and/or ARG/US, the leading 3rd party safety auditing firms in the country.
