PrivatAir Hosts Aircraft Showcase

PrivatAir, the international business aviation specialist, announced today that it will host guests on September 25, 2003 during an unprecedented jet aircraft showcase at its Palm Beach International Airport facilities.
During this unique event, visitors will be able to view and tour a selection of aircraft from the company`s exclusive jet fleet. Greg Thomas, PrivatAir CEO, will be on hand, along with the crews of the aircraft on display.
“We`re delighted to welcome guests to our facility and on board our planes to offer them a sample of the legendary PrivatAir hospitality,” said Thomas. “PrivatAir is looking forward to this event to share our unparalleled aviation machines, which are otherwise not available for public viewing.”
The event is designed to raise awareness within the South Florida and select national luxury markets of PrivatAir as an international, full-service business aviation company dedicated to service excellence. It will feature a range of executive aircraft, including PrivatAir`s luxuriously appointed Boeing 757-200, configured to carry just 49 passengers in unashamed luxury. Also on display will be a number of other prestige business jets, such as Gulfstreams, Challengers and Citations. All of the aircraft on display are available for sale and/or charter.
There will be two receptions: 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. for industry personnel and the general public and 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. for VIPs, including PrivatAir`s clients, press, and other select invitees.
Vice Presidents of PrivatAir`s four product lines, Private Travel (Charter), Corporate Shuttle, Ground Services and Aircraft Sales & Management, will also be present at this event to introduce their departments and to answer guests` questions.
