Apollo Jets selected as anchor partner for exclusive program
San Francisco and New York – April 10, 2012 – XOJET, Inc., the leader in private aviation, today announced the XOJET Platinum Partner Network a program designed to enable select members of XOJET's extensive broker network to enhance and extend their relationship with XOJET. To date, XOJET broker partners have resold XOJET's On-Demand and Fixed Price Charter services on a per-trip basis. XOJET Platinum Partners will now also act as premium resellers for XOJET's popular flight programs which include XOJET Preferred Access™, XOJET Coast2Coast™, and XOJET Elite Access™ as well as agents for XOJET's private jet charter services. XOJET Platinum Partners will receive in-depth training, exclusive sales tools and marketing support programs. They will also get access to quoting and reservation systems that will enable them to provide their clients with a "one-stop-shop" for all XOJET flights and programs while ensuring clients receive consistent service, availability, and pricing from every member of the XOJET Platinum Partner Network.
XOJET has selected New York-based Apollo Jets to anchor the XOJET Platinum Partner Network. As the largest private jet charter brokerage in the US, Apollo Jets has a deep and loyal client-base. Apollo Jet's market presence, reputation for exceptional client service, and long history of working closely with XOJET, all contributed to the company's qualification and selection as the inaugural member of the XOJET Platinum Partner Network.
"We are proud of the relationships we have developed with our broker partners over the years and felt it was important to create the opportunity to deepen these relationships by enabling a highly select group of broker partners to act as an extension of the XOJET team," said Brad Stewart, President of XOJET. "Apollo Jets is a world-class service provider and one of our closest partners. Clearly, when we decided to launch this exclusive program, it had to start with our partners at Apollo Jets."
The XOJET Platinum Partner Network is an innovative program that redefines the relationship between private jet operators and brokers. XOJET Platinum Partners will offer a complete set of services and cost-saving options to their clients with consistent terms and pricing. Private fliers will be able to purchase XOJET flights and programs from any member of the XOJET Platinum Partner network and receive the same pricing, exceptional quality of service, and superb jets.
"Our customers demand the best and we deliver", said Al Palagonia, Managing Director of Apollo Jets. "XOJET owns and operates one of the finest fleet of jets in the world. It is no surprise that our customers prefer to fly on XOJET.
