offers the highest quality for a reasonable price that is available in the
market today. As a result, our all-business class model has experienced
tremendous success in our first year in operation, and amongst our
passengers, we can already count many frequent and loyal L’Avion customers.
We have chosen to increase our flight frequency and introduce an additional
aircraft as a result of this substantial customer response.”
