AspenJet launching scheduled, eco-friendly, semi-private charter flights – Aspen Times

News News
|

A new semi-private jet company is aiming to provide a travel experience that’s as  world-class and sustainably minded as Aspen itself.
AspenJet is launching nonstop semi-private charter flights to and from some of Aspen’s top feeder markets: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas-Austin, San Francisco and South Florida. By spaciously reconfiguring 88-seat jets to fit just 30 seats, this executive-class flying experience also provides travelers with essential health and safety precautions, and physical distancing. 
With the exclusive ability to fly nonstop from New York and South Florida, these travelers now have direct access to Aspen without connections or TSA lines. The service is expected to begin in early 2021.
“This concept of shared flight takes the people currently chartering private planes and moves them into the carpool lane,” said AspenJet Founder, President and CEO Patrick Dial. “That means fewer flights coming in, less noise, less pollution, and less operational burden on the airport.”

Sustainably minded travel
AspenJet’s retrofitted Embraer E-JETS aircraft feature General Electric’s ultra-quiet engines, and Dial is also developing partnerships for enhanced fuel logistics, when and where possible, as well as utilizing new Biojet fuels to reduce carbon emissions. There will also be in-flight use of various eco-friendly materials throughout. 
“AspenJet is prioritizing the values of being sustainable in launching a new charter airline — we’re trying to tie as much of that into our brand as possible,” Dial said. ”We’re designing an exclusive service for discerning travelers who also want to be more socially conscious and environmentally friendly.”
Dial said both commercial and private air travelers need more options in the marketplace for more sustainable travel. Many want the ability to fly in style without being wasteful, he said. 
“There is a movement afoot with first-class commercial travelers wanting and needing an elevated travel experience, especially during COVID, while many private flyers are looking to downsize,” he said. “They’re starting to understand they don’t need as much extravagance, so does it really make sense to fly alone on a giant private aircraft?”
Built with the Aspen community in mind
AspenJet’s aircraft will have a wingspan under 95 feet, which is the current maximum at Aspen Airport. With older generation jets soon being taken out of service, AspenJet’s ERJ-175 and/or ERJ-190 aircraft provide a self-mandated compromise solution both now and in the future if/when an airport expansion leads to larger aircraft in Aspen.
Dial, who has an aviation background and is a full-time Aspen resident, has closely followed the airport’s visioning process and has incorporated relevant community input into his business plan to avoid the use of larger jets. 
“We want AspenJet to be right in line with the wants and needs of the community, ultimately, being good stewards in helping maintain the character of our community” Dial said. “As a consequence, shared-flight means less flights into Aspen, which we all agree would be a good thing.”
Affordability and convenience
Private charter jets have always been a popular option for Aspen travelers, but one segment of that business involves small groups traveling together and sharing the costs for private charter jets. Dial said it’s common for a group of 8 or so friends or family members to book a jet, but there’s a risk that one or more people in the group drop out.
“They say they’ll share the airplane costs and agree on what it costs, and then a person bows out at the last minute and the rest of the group is stuck paying the difference,” Dial said. 
Other services use crowdsourcing technology to find an empty seat on a jet heading to or from Aspen, but it makes finding the flight you want, at the price you want, much harder. 
“We’re taking away the risk of crowdsourcing a private airplane with friends by providing scheduled, semi-private service for about ⅓ of the cost,” Dial said.
Connecting with new friends
When you step onto your semi-private flight, everything from the service to the style to the food is going to feel like Aspen. Like sitting at the Ajax Tavern or on the Sundeck on a Sunday afternoon, Dial envisions a flying experience much like the social experience and culture of Aspen.
“The magic of AspenJet, like the magic of Aspen itself will be about making new friends, ones you might hike, bike, ski, dine or possibly do some new business with, as well as enjoying a more socially-conscious, eco-friendly, way to fly,” Dial said. “Think carpool for the jet-set crowd. And, enjoy an all-new type of travel experience that we’re coining to be ‘Experiential Travel. Elevated Flight.’

IBAC Aids ICAO Global Reopening Effort through Workshop – Aviation International News

This story is part of AIN‘s continuing coverage of the impact of the coronavirus on aviation.
The International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has developed a public health risk-management workshop to support efforts by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to provide guidance that would support a return of international flights. The ICAO Public Health Corridor (PHC) workshop is part of a broader virtual implementation package (iPack) that ICAO has launched online. Developed for national authorities, the PHC iPack training is designed to facilitate the reopening of cross-border air travel.
“This is an opportunity for industry to advise regulators and policymakers around the world on how best to facilitate the maintenance and return of air transport in a safe, efficient manner in line with agreed public-health and operational guidance,” said IBAC director-general, Kurt Edwards. “We coordinated subject matter experts from nearly 20 travel-related businesses and associations to gather their input for the workshop content.”
IBAC worked with Vancouver-based TrainingPort and MedAire to develop the workshop curriculum. “This new training curriculum will empower states to safely reopen borders after careful risk assessments and will undoubtedly contribute to the rebound of aviation on a global scale,” said Dr. Paulo M. Alves, MedAire’s global director of aviation health.
“It was an honor to work with numerous relevant industry subject matter experts to design and produce such important content, and to collectively work toward getting the world traveling safely again,” added TrainingPort CEO Bryan Barratt.
IBAC is a partner of ICAO’s Collaborative Arrangement for the Prevention and Management of Public Health Events in Civil Aviation (CAPSCA) cross-sectoral collaborative program, which is supported by the World Health Organization (WHO). In addition to ICAO, WHO, and IBAC, CAPSCA includes representatives of the airlines, manufacturers, air navigation services providers, airports, aviation authorities, and national public-health authorities. 
“We’re grateful for IBAC’s efforts to assemble this team and deliver results which will make important contributions to global air transport recovery,” said ICAO secretary-general Juan Carlos Salazar. “The civil aviation community is working very closely through ICAO today to reconnect our world, and we’re committed to bringing stakeholders together to assure that our sector’s recovery proceeds safely, securely, and sustainably.”

Porter Airlines Introduces Lighter, Tighter Seats – One Mile at a Time

Featured Reviews
Featured Insights
Porter Airlines is a quirky regional Canadian airline based at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. The airline has been grounded since the start of the pandemic, given the border restrictions between Canada and the United States. Porter Airlines will be resuming flights as of September 8, 2021, and ahead of that, the carrier is revealing some changes to aircraft cabins.
In this post:
Porter Airlines has updated the interiors of its fleet of 29 Bombardier Q400 aircraft. The most significant change is that these planes now feature the new TiSeat E2 from Expliseat, marketed as being the world’s lightest aircraft seat. With this, the airline has also added an additional row of seats to each plane:
In addition to these thin seats allowing Porter to squeeze in more seats, the airline also highlights that they’re roughly 50% lighter than previous seats, and reduce aircraft weight by about 1,000 pounds. The airline expects this will reduce annual fuel consumption by around 500,000 liters, and corresponding CO2 emissions by around 1,200 metric tons.
In addition to the new seats, Porter Airlines has also added new carpeting, lavatory enhancements, and new sideboards and updated LED lighting.
Porter Airlines has historically differentiated itself from other airlines, both by the airport it operates out of, and by the product it offers. The airline has primarily targeted business travelers, and a great product has been part of the selling point — the airline has a lounge for everyone at the airport, there are free alcoholic drinks onboard served in glassware, and more.
With that in mind, a few thoughts on these Porter Airlines changes:
I feel like Porter Airlines is going to have a rough time as we emerge from the pandemic, given that transborder business travel likely won’t recover for a long time. I certainly can’t blame the airline for these changes, and I don’t think the new configuration will materially alter peoples’ purchase decisions.
Porter Airlines’ fleet has been grounded for about 18 months, and during this time the airline has reconfigured its Q400s. The airline has installed the world’s lightest airplane seats on these planes, and in the process has managed to increase the number of seats on planes by four, to 78.
While the environmental aspect of this is cool, I can’t imagine flying in the world’s lightest airplane seat will be much of a passenger experience upgrade.
What do you make of these changes to Porter Airlines’ Q400 interiors?

I think the “1000 pound seat savings” thing is silly, since that could easily be cancelled out by the passengers sitting in the 4 additional seats and their bags.
Just what I was thinking!
Living in Toronto and walking along the waterfront Porter have been ‘shunting ‘ their fleet around the airport
Originally Porter’s Q400s had 70 seats. It was like an all-Economy Plus plane, which was great. Later they increased to 74 (per Wikipedia, this occurred in 2013). It is unfortunate that they have further increased density, although the seats were due for replacement – on some of the older planes they didn’t look great.
A correction: They no longer have “a lounge for everyone at the airport”. YTZ expanded a couple years ago and put…

A correction: They no longer have “a lounge for everyone at the airport”. YTZ expanded a couple years ago and put in real food and beverage concessions, which eliminated the free drinks and snacks that had been a Porter hallmark. They also closed their lounge at YOW and the space became a Priority Pass affiliated lounge (closed at the moment due to Covid). Similarly the makeshift lounge area beside their gate at EWR no longer exists.
Lucky,
Porter doesn’t have lounges anymore, hence no more free food/drinks at airports.
They also got rid of free alcoholic drinks onboard.
All these changes occurred before COVID, so they are not pandemic related.
You should update your post with these changes, as they are a big deal.
@Ben – something is wrong with the ”blog” page at OMAAT and have been for at least a week now. For me, it leaves out a lot of recent posts and the time stamp is incorrect. Eg it currently says that the most recent article was about Qatar airways Executive jets ”32 minutes ago”, even though that post was posted several days ago. These newer articles don’t show up at all. You really need to…

No, this is a recent development. I’m having the same problem with my browser where I have to manually refresh the screen to see any new articles added since the last time I visited the page. This only started happening within the last week or so.
My apologies to everyone reporting issues with the /blog page, I’ll look into it. The good news is that there should be a significant improvement going live very, very shortly, which will make the /blog page unnecessary. Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience.
I have the same issues with the blog page and have to manually reload it in my browser to get the latest articles. I have been seeing them come through on the social media platforms before.
Me, too.
The planes were already tight as it was. 30″ is ridiculous. I don’t think a lot of their routes have much competition, though. I didn’t have many options to get to places like Sudbury. Guess I’ll just fold myself up like a transformer. Didn’t want those knees anyways
