Wheels Up unveiled today a customizable solution for corporate clients that includes aircraft charter and management and support for whole aircraft sales. Called Up for Business, the program also offers flexible spending for corporate clients to use pre-funded amounts for booking travel on Wheels Up’s fleet or with its partner, Delta Air Lines, through a single account.
Under the program, Wheels Up will provide dedicated account managers and a key account desk to evaluate and understand the travel needs of corporate clients and to produce tailored solutions that are efficient and optimize their spending. In addition, the program offers a turnkey solution for acquiring and upgrading aircraft or divesting a client’s fleet. For companies that own one or more aircraft, Up for Business will arrange a service to lower their ownership costs and provide hands-on maintenance management.
Wheels Up senior v-p Robert Bourrier will lead Up for Business and report to chief sales officer Ken Napolitano. “The travel needs of each company are unique and different,” said Napolitano. “We recognize our job is to be a partner in the process so that our talented sales team, who have decades worth of combined experience, can help optimize a private aviation solution to meet the financial goals and travel needs of every business client we serve.”
