Frequent flyers will love the idea of Surf Air, an all-you-can fly membership airline. Is this an idea that is set to completely revolutionise air travel fares?
Two weeks ago the debut flight from London Luton to Ibiza launched the airline and now Cannes is the second European route on the service. It enables members to travel quickly and comfortably on executive aircraft from private terminals. Their unique subscription model allows members to travel on unlimited flights for one monthly fee and they can book in 30 seconds and check in for their flight 15 minutes before departure.
The launch in Europe has proved a popular idea so far with a surge of membership applications received from frequent flyers who wish to use the service for both business and pleasure. More routes are due to be rolled out throughout 2017 and members will be offered flights between London and a host of destinations such as Zurich, Geneva and Milan.
CEO Simon Talling-Smith believes that Surf Air’s business model is the future of air travel. It’s being touted as a smarter alternative to commercial travel and will give the Surf Air members more time to do what matters most rather than hang around airports for hours before flights.
It may seem new to the readers in the UK but this has already been a success in the USA, where it serves 17 destinations and has hubs in California and Texas.
Designed to be economical and efficient, the monthly subscription starts at £1,750 and subscribers can secure a seat on their chosen flight in just 30 seconds from a handheld device. There is no waiting time at check-in and passengers can turn up 15 minutes before take-off. The state-of-the-art executive aircrafts can seat up to eight passengers and have dedicated terminals in the airport as well as valet parking.
