30 years ago, AEROAFFAIRES became the first French private aviation broker. Since 1991, we have been flirting with more than 30,000 successfully completed flights, some 100,000 passengers carried worldwide, 90 million kilometers flown and 8,000 airports frequented by our fleet.
We would therefore like to thank our customers for their loyalty, but also our network of partners for their lasting commitment: airline operators, private terminals and flight crews who offer the best services. Our success is also the work of our airline experts, who are there for you every day of the year and at any time of the day: “From the first call to your arrival at your destination, behind every flight operated by AEROAFFAIRES is the work of 1,000 people. “François Xavier Clerc, founder of AEROAFFAIRES.
The strength of our network is also based on the loyalty of tour operators such as Virtuoso networks, or the tour operators & MICE with whom we have been working for years. As a member of various aeronautical associations including the EBAA (European Business Aviation) we can ensure that we always have the latest safety standards in business aviation. They allow us to be identified as a key player in the European business aviation industry that offers an impeccable service to its customers. As a major agent in private aviation, we perfect this role on a daily basis by facilitating access to flight information and streamlining the process of booking your flight.
In 30 years, if AEROAFFAIRES has been able to get through the various crises (economic, financial and health) without any problems, it is thanks to its ability to adapt to the market and to your needs. We have thus broadened our offers and our fields of expertise through the management of proprietary aircraft, VIP charter flights, medical flights, air freight and group flights. This flexibility to meet your requirements also includes the creation of a frequent flyer program, the Flying Jet Card, which allows you to purchase discounted flight hour packages. Finally, as ecology is today an unavoidable challenge, we offset the impact of our CO2 emissions with the Sky CO2® initiative by supporting a major project to preserve primary forest in Peru.
Since our inception, we have always wanted to adapt to your needs and facilitate access to our aircraft by making your travel simple and fluid. Today, it has never been easier for you to exchange with our teams. We also wanted to play the transparency concerning our prices thanks to our online price comparator. Finally, thanks to our ideas blog where news and information on the world of aviation mingle, our experts share with you the latest news in the field.
In 2020, despite the coronavirus health crisis and a complicated year for all air traffic, AEROAFFAIRES has managed to pull through. Private aviation has indeed allowed many health repatriations, the maintenance of professional appointments, the setting up of air bridges between Asia and Europe for medicalized cargo, the flight of goods for essential and urgent deliveries.
In 2021, AEROAFFAIRES looks to new horizons. We are proud to announce the expansion of our structure with the installation of Swiss offices in Geneva. To mark this event, a new version of our online price comparator arrives during February and our Instagram @aeroaffaires_private_jets is also revitalized to stay close to you. And we continue to improve our communication tools with WhatsApp, our mobile application and a secure space for our customers.
AEROAFFAIRES is therefore more determined than ever to develop and innovate in the years to come in order to continue to be the main player in your business or private travel by giving you access to the latest innovations in private aviation, notably with the next hybrid and electric private jets.
Thank you for these 30 years of loyalty at our side,
