Since its launch two months ago, CharterAuction.com said its block-charter auction program has offered 50-percent or greater savings over competing fractional-ownership and charter membership card programs. The service, in which charter operators bid on block-charter requests, is intended for customers who typically fly out of the same departure airport, schedule a return trip within three days and fly more than 100 hours per year, said the Quincy, Mass. company. Once booked, CharterAuction.com acts as a single point of contact, providing 24/7 concierge, scheduling and dispatch services, said the company.
