Luxury Air Jets Meets and Greets at the Rainbow Room
October 27, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsOctober 27, 2007 - Luxury Air Jets joined NYCBTA on October 12th at the luxurious Rainbow Room on top of NYC Rockefeller Plaza to meet with some of the most prominent folks in the business travel industry. The discussions covered a full array of business and corporate travel issues such as homeland security, international trade, and technology. As expected, all the speakers touched upon the issue of private jet charter. Peter Greeenberg – travel editor for NBC's The Today Show, spoke over lunch and moderated the final discussion.
Mr. Greenberg agreed that in many cases there is an economic justification for using private jets, especially if flying multiple executives together. The taxi service, he said, is a good idea. David Neeleman - founder and Chairman of JetBlue Airways, shared his thoughts and opinions around the rules and regulations governing the nation's air transportation industry. Mr. Neeleman stressed the fact that a lot of the over crowding of the runways in New York City is caused by private jets. He did not offer a solution but just stated a fact. NY Assemblyman Michael Gianaris who was part of the “Airline Passengers’ Bill of Rights,” in August of this year, spoke about the groundbreaking legislation and how New York is dealing with the intolerable delays at its airports, suggesting that it is not surprising that more and more people look for private aviation as a solution.
C. Stewart Verdery Jr who served as the first assistant secretary for policy and planning at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), following his unanimous confirmation by the U.S. Senate, discussed legislation affecting the business traveler and his current work of delivering public policy results in business travel. Mr. Verdery emphasized the urgency of arriving on time when traveling on business and how private aviation is better at it. Bill DeCota - Port Authority Director of Airports discussed his responsibility for Kennedy, Newark and LaGuardia airports and the $15 billion public-private redevelopment programs and initiatives presently underway at these airports.
Mr. DeCota said that one of the reasons people pursue private aviation is because today private jets receive equal “landing opportunities” on the runways. “This is good news to our industry” says Rodney Kadymir, Luxury Air Jets Managing Director.
