The membership airline club will offer European travellers smart and affordable travels
July 12, 2016: Surf Air, the all-you-can-fly membership club, announced the launch of its European operations, offering unlimited air travel to businesses and consumers for a monthly fee from October onwards.
Travelling aboard a state of the art executive jet, Surf Air routes will include multiple flights between UK’s London Luton Airport, Cannes, Geneva and Zurich. There will also be weekend flights to the likes of Ibiza, with further regular destinations to include the likes of Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona planned to be introduced in 2017.
Members of the service will pay a monthly fee of £2500, which will allow them to fly unlimited between destinations and also offer friends and family guest passes from £750 one way. Booking can be done either online or through an app.
“The whole aim of Surf Air is to combine simplicity and convenience, giving business and leisure travellers across Europe a new way to fly that saves valuable time,” said Simon Talling-Smith, CEO of Surf Air in Europe. “We see our model as the future of air travel and it has been greatly received in the California market since its launch. Our innovative service provides fantastic value to regular travellers not seen elsewhere, and we look forward to expanding our club and delivering a distinctive travel experience to Europe’s top destinations.”
Previously nicknamed the ‘Uber’ or ‘Netflix’ of air travel, this European expansion is a sign of the success Surf Air’s disruptive travel model has brought to the industry. Launched in California in 2013 as the country’s first private membership airline, Surf Air now has 3000 members. With up to 90 daily flights to 13 destinations in and around the state, members are able to enjoy an all-you-can-fly service without the hassle and frustration of commercial travel.
Said Surf Air Chairman, Sudhin Shahani, “We are incredibly excited for the launch of a European business led by highly capable aviation and subscription business veteran Simon Talling-Smith. This is a great step to further Surf Air’s growth objective of providing a game-changing product for frequent travellers across major business routes globally.”
