Portsmouth, NH, United States, 2010/06/28 - Charter Auction announces its strong sales growth for private jet charter out of New England, specifically in areas such as Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Today Charter Auction announces its strong sales growth for private jet charter out of New England, specifically in areas such as Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Sales for these two islands are up 38% from last year’s first quarter sales, and are up 50% for the month of May. This trend is expected to continue throughout the summer as businessmen and affluent clients return from their southern winter retreats.
“Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are two of our best departure locations. We have really focused our efforts at being competitive with these markets and the efforts have paid off. Sales have been strong and we expect them to get even better as our clients return to their summer homes,” says Brandon Ferrante, Director of Customer Service at CharterAuction.com
Charter Auction has attributed part of this boom to its strong affiliations with both NBTA and ASTA. “Our ability to build a relationship with travel agents and travel planners has broadened our exposure and given us a enormous boost in lead generation.” Travel agents and travel planners rarely venture into the private jet charter market on behalf of clients because it’s expensive and complicated. Charter Auction has pioneering this relationship by making the system easy and efficient. Now travel professionals can get 6 competitive quotes in 6 easy steps!
“This strong sales growth has been great. We have focused our attention at getting our clients the best possible pricing using our aircraft locator technology in conjunction with a reverse-style auction. It’s a system that no one else in the industry utilized and it’s been very effective at allowing us to offer the most competitive pricing in the business,” says Ferrante.
Martha’s Vineyard is the third largest island off the East Coast of the United States and is home to more than 15,000 year-round residents. The island is considered one of the ultimate summer destinations as the population swells to well more than 70,000 people during the summer months. Boat or aircraft is the only access Martha’s Vineyard, via Martha’s Vineyard Airport. This makes it a premium location for Hollywood celebrities and the wealthy tourists.
Nantucket is located 30 miles south of Cape Cod. The island is another unique summer colony. The standing population of 10,000 people soars to approximately 50,000 people during peak summer months. This island is also home to many of the rich and famous, and is serviced by the Nantucket Memorial Airport located on the southern most part of the island.
