Planet Nine Private Air debuts at NBAA’s San Jose Regional Forum
Planet Nine (P9), the US’ newest boutique ultra long-haul charter specialist, makes its debut at the NBAA San Jose Regional Forum this week to present is latest Dassault Falcon 7X on the static display. It’s second 7X (registered N119NE) entered service several weeks ago, luxuriously outfitted with 16 VIP seats, including six individual sleeper seats – perfect for over-night Transatlantic flying.
Planet Nine secured its FAA Part 135 operating certificate in June this year and is already reporting a positive entry into service from its discerning clientele. Over the summer it performed several charters into Europe, including London Luton Airport and runway restricted Cannes Mandelieu. It recently ran several charters into Honolulu International Airport, pre-Hurricane, while other key charter destinations have included Nice, Geneva and Tivat Airport, Montenegro.
Headquartered out of Los Angeles, California, with a staff of 28 full time employees, co-founders Matt Walter and James Seagrim, together with international Director of Sales, UK based Kirti Odedra, are looking forward to making new business acquaintances during the September 6th San Jose forum. They are positioning Planet Nine as a compelling and competitive offering in the premium end of the ultra long-range charter market.
Early feedback from the charter broker fraternity endorses their vision.
Kim Scolari, CEO at leading US independent broker, Van Nuys, CA based Jet Productions Worldwide. Inc. commented: “I can’t say enough great things about my experiences with Planet Nine Private Air. I say “experiences” because I keep going back to them. They just get better with each charter. Their attention to detail and customer service truly positions them in the 5 Star category of private jet operators. If I had to sum it up with one word, I would say they are a ‘stellar’ operator. Besides having gorgeous aircraft, they also care passionately about passengers’ on board experience. Our experience as brokers too, is excellent. With our discerning A list clients, I have to present the very best aircraft and service and Planet Nine helps me shine every single time.”
On the other side of the Atlantic, Will Holroyd, Sales & Marketing Director at Harrods Aviation, London Luton Airport, also exhibiting in San Jose commented: “We are very proud that Planet 9 are regularly choosing the services of Harrods Aviation at Luton to support this exciting new addition to the long-haul charter market. With so many of our regular customers flying between London and the major international US hubs, their fine long-haul offering, based on the popular Falcon 7X, is a welcome addition to the industry.”
