The service will be extended to Amritsar, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad in the coming years.
Amid the current age of retail revolutions, subscription facilities have gained notable popularity across a range of businesses. All set to revamp the air travel industry, one such facility is this new subscription-based airline service being launched by Prince Air, a Delhi-based startup. Linking Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore as a part of its maiden plans, the facility will allow commuters to take unlimited air trips through business class private jets at a pre-decided monthly subscription amount, reportedly.
'All you can fly' membership to re-invent the flying experience
As per reports, the airline claims that the country is about to welcome an 'economical and affordable way to travel'. The firm will offer limitless business class two-way trips, between the three cities for a month and it has been reported that this would cost 50% lower, as compared to the cost of commercial airlines. Being the first service of its kind, the subscription has been named 'All you can fly' membership.
Reports state that the service will be augmented to connect other cities later. Besides assuring an enhanced flying experience, the customers will also get benefitted from a different check-in route. As per the founder, the passengers will not be required to queue up two hours prior to the departure, which is the norm today. They will have to arrive only 30 minutes before the flying schedule and there will be a separate gate for entry. Remarkably, the facility of a car can also be availed for hastened exit from the airport.
Jaipur, Lucknow, Pune & other cities to be included in next phases
It has been reported that a gamut of facilities would assure a 'special' experience of traveling in a private jet to commuters. As per current plans, the service will be extended to Amritsar, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad under the second and third phase of implementation.
While private aviation facilities are generally overpriced in India, Prince Air has come up with a moderate pricing system that oscillates between the price of economy travel, business class trips and private jets. As per reports, the airline has been successful in cutting the cost of private jets by 95%. Reportedly, a monthly fee of ₹54,500 will be levied with the deployment of Airbus A-320 or A-321 for use. Assuring luxury and space to the travelers, only 50% of the seating capacity will be booked.
As per reports, it is expected that the airline would operate after 6-8 months after a significant number of memberships has been recorded. Under the scheme, pre-memberships have already been rolled out.
