Charter Jet Sharing Firm Launches in UK

 - August 26, 2011, 10:20 AM

Victor, a new UK-based aircraft charter booking and price comparison website that officially opened last month, potentially reduces charter costs by selling spare legs and seats to other members. Membership in Victor is free, but is restricted to wealthy private or corporate travellers. The initial focus is on using European operators, flying to UK and European destinations in light jets. The company levies a 5-percent fee to book charter flights through Victor, but 70 percent of any rebooking of what would have been an empty leg, or seats on the operating legs, will be refunded to the booking member or can be used to reduce the amount each passenger pays.
