The Red Carpet Starts in New York with Special Avion Private Jet Club Flights…


Los Angeles (February 21, 2006) — And the winner is….everyone flying with the exclusive Avion Private Jet Club to Los Angeles for Oscars weekend. Avion Private Jet Club, the first to launch New York-Los Angeles per-seat pricing on executive jets, offers three special flights to luxuriously whisk the cognoscenti to Los Angeles for a weekend of Oscars festivities.

These flights will depart New York at 4:00pm on Wednesday, March 1, Thursday, March 2, and Friday, March 3, 2006. Guests can choose to take the service one-way or round-trip, with return flights to New York booked on Monday and Tuesday after the awards.

A “country club in the sky,” Avion Private Jet Club offers complimentary door-to-door private town car service, cuisine by fellow member Wolfgang Puck and top flight amenities, such as Italian black cashmere blankets.

Avion normally requires membership to fly, but is offering these special Oscars flights to members and non-members alike. The cost for a one-way is $5,500 (with taxes up to $413.00) and round-trip is $11,000 (with taxes up to $825.00).

Avion’s innovative model allows its members to purchase individual seats on executive jets, rather than having to pay for the entire jet. By “sharing” the jet with other Avion members, the cost of a round-trip flight New York-Los Angeles-New York on a Gulfstream IV is about $11,000 per passenger regardless of how many members are aboard. This is considerably less than the $60,000 charged for a charter and the high cost of fractional ownership or hourly card programs.

As a U.S. Department of Transportation approved (part 380) Public Charter Operator, Avion offers service between Los Angeles and New York, with plans to expand the frequency of flights and destinations in the near future. Per-seat flights are operated for Avion by Avjet Corporation. Avjet is both approved and recommended by two leading private audit authorities on aviation safety, Wyvern Wingman and ARG/US Gold.

Avion Private Jet Club is an exclusive members-only service. For further information on Avion visit or contact them directly at 310-281-4888 or Also see Avion’s participant contract for full information.
