BlissJet launches NY to London private jet flights


BlissJet has launched the first individually-ticketed private jet flights between New York and London on a regular schedule.

The company says that the new service offers travelers an exclusive transatlantic travel experience that is significantly more efficient, convenient and secure than the airlines’ first and business class products.

Pre-screened travellers who are accustomed to flying private or in premium cabins can begin taking advantage of Bliss Jet’s new class of service between New York’s Westchester County Airport and London’s Biggin Hill Airport in September.

“Bliss Jet is for people who schedule time in minutes, not hours.”

David Rimmer, president and CEO said: “Bliss Jet is for people who schedule time in minutes, not hours. We will cater to discerning, intercontinental travelers who seek a unique, private jet experience that is superior to any scheduled premium cabin service, yet far more cost-effective than bespoke private jet charter.”

Bliss Jet’s service will enable travelers to circumvent the hassles of flying from congested major airports.

Passengers can arrive at the airport 30 minutes before departure, boarding an aircraft a few steps from the private terminal and using an uncrowded arrival terminal.

“We are offering all the advantages of a private jet experience on optimally-scheduled flights that bypass the inefficiencies of business class travel. Not since the days of the Concorde has a door-to-door journey between New York and London been this fast or refined,” added Rimmer.

BlissJet passengers will be able to choose custom meals from an extensive menu, access a variety of inflight entertainment options, and connect to worldwide Wi-Fi. Upon request, Bliss Concierge services will arrange ground or helicopter transportation, or private charters for passengers flying to another location.

BlissJet flights will depart from New York on Sunday nights so that passengers will arrive at London Biggin Hill Airport refreshed, relaxed, and ready for a productive work week. Return flights depart from London after lunch on Friday so passengers can schedule morning meetings and arrive back in the United States for a family dinner or a Broadway play. Seats on the 14-passenger jets will cost $11,995 each way. Unlike crowded business class sections, Bliss Jet will limit seat sales well below the maximum aircraft’s capacity for extra comfort.

Rimmer said: “BlissJet security will be supervised by top global firms in New York and London to ensure the safety and security of everyone on board. Our security team, complemented by high-level security intelligence, will provide comprehensive, discreet coverage that far exceeds regulatory requirements and the industry’s best practices.”

Every flight will be operated by a highly-experienced carrier and crew on aircraft judged superior by respected third-party safety audit standards such as Wyvern Wingman, ARGUS Platinum ISBAO and the Air Charter Safety Foundation.
