Flight Delays For Super Bowl and FBR Open Expected
By Karen Di Piazza
If you plan on flying to Arizona to attend the FBR Open Golf Tournament in Scottsdale Jan. 31 - Feb. 3, or the Super Bowl XLII on Feb. 3 in Glendale, Ariz., you can count on flight delays. Air traffic controllers are already stretched beyond working capacity; the Federal Aviation Administration has failed to keep and train new hires to replace the nation's experienced controllers who are retiring early. Due to substantial air traffic increases for both general aviation and commercial flights, the FAA has issued temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) and notices to airmen (NOTAM) for the Super Bowl.
According to the National Business Aviation Association, there will not be a special traffic management program (STMP) put into place.

ExecJet USA Announces their Company Launch Providing a Safe and Cost- Effective Alternative for Air TravelersContact: Donna Blanton at (866) 629 3538 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Moorestown, NJ November 20th, 2007 In response to the growing demand for efficient and cost- effective air travel solutions, a group of entrepreneurs and experienced business travelers formed and launched ExecJet USA, an on-demand air-charter brokerage firm headquartered in Moorestown, NJ.
The company purchased a local on-demand air charter organization which has had an excellent reputation and 10 year history in the Philadelphia area. The transaction occurred in October of this year. The owner of the purchased company, Pearl Bacchus, is now the CEO of the new company, ExecJet USA. I am delighted to have joined forces with the ExecJet USA team. Their business acumen, financial resources, strategic marketing/business development expertise, and local relationships will fuel our market penetration in the Tri-State area. said Pearl Bacchus, CEO.
The problem we have found through our market research is a lack of education available to consumers. In fact, even the most astute members of the business community have limited access to information and knowledge regarding the various price and service options available for private air travel. Mostly, they rely on their accountants and even assistants to make these decisions. Often, the response is to take your pick of fractional ownership or air card programs. said President, Keith Omlor. Unlike fractional ownership and jet cards upfront investment method, ExecJet USA differentiates their services by using an on-demand payment model. This allows travelers to pay as they go. In addition, ExecJet USA provides the kind of friendly and personalized service that people desire, especially for their air travel experiences.
The ExecJet USA model differs from its two major competitors by not requiring an upfront investment in fractional aircraft or jet cards. According to the Helium Report, an independent media firm, the buy-in price for fractional aircraft starts at around $405,000. This does not include monthly maintenance fees in the $6,000-$7,000 range, nor the hourly rate, which can be $2,000-$4,000, depending on the aircraft. Jet cards are available for purchase in hour or dollar segments. The recently promoted 25-hour card for $119,900 is an example of this model. ExecJet USAs pay as you go model is the most cost effective model for both occasional and frequent private air travelers.
The focus of ExecJet USAs marketing strategy is to educate the community about the facts: people who fly private air charter have access to both their local and international airports, are able to park for free, walk directly to the plane without having to check baggage or wait in line, are in control of their schedule, and can do this by leasing aircraft through ExecJet USA both turbo props and jets, at an hourly rate. All of these features have huge efficiency advantages for both business and personal travelers.
