Fly Louie, an alliance of 200 independent charter operators, and lifestyle and travel club Manifest have entered a strategic partnership that will offer charter service options and quotes for flights on Manifest’s website to both members and nonmembers. “As leisure travel returns post-Covid, we are continuing to see incredible demand for private air charter services and wanted to expand this option beyond just Manifest members but to the broader market looking for private charters,” said Manifest v-p of corporate strategy Dan Cohn. “Partnering with Fly Louie will allow us to offer the most competitive pricing in the industry while still maintaining Manifest’s stringent safety and service standards.”
Under an agreement, Manifest will work with Fly Louie to send a charter request to its Part 135 operators and brokers to return quotes within 24 hours. Once a quote is accepted, Manifest and Fly Louie will handle all the logistics of the flight, each of which will be operated under a two-pilot standard. More than 1,700 aircraft are available for charter under the Fly Louie network.
Manifest offers and arranges for its members custom trip experiences to unique destinations in the U.S. and has club chapters in Denver, San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles Basin, Santa Barbara, San Diego, and Phoenix, with plans to add more.
