Washington, Stansted route for MAXjet

MAXjet Airways, the low-fare all-business-class airline a new route from Washington Dulles International Airport to Stansted.MAXjet will also launch its Customer Appreciation Program, in early 2006.

MAXjet is introducing the new services in response to consistently high load factors and customer demand.

Beginning mid-February, MAXjet will offer daily service between New York and London when a Saturday frequency is added.

MAXjet is also finalizing plans for five weekly flights between Washington Dulles International Airport and London-Stansted Airport, utilizing the second aircraft it will acquire this month.

The Washington Dulles service is expected to commence in late February. A third aircraft, which will also be delivered this month, will be used for other services, including as a spare aircraft.


According to MAXjet CEO Gary Rogliano, the air traveler is clearly recognizing the enormous value that MAXjet offers its customers within its all-business-class service.

“Our load factor levels and customer reaction to our product has been overwhelmingly positive and encouraging,” stated Rogliano. “People are thanking me everyday for creating an airline that finally makes sense for consumers. That is why MAXjet is pleased to proceed with its plans to add aircraft, routes and customer service offerings.”

The airline’s remarkable success has led to MAXjet’s loyalty program, Customer Appreciation Program (CAP), which MAXjet will initiate as early as February 2006. CAP will be as simple and customer-friendly as the ticketing rules.

Customers who have ‘banked’ enough earnings will be able to obtain a free flight. There will be no blackout dates, no Saturday night stay requirement or any other limitations often attached to reward travel.

“We do not consider this program to be a ‘reward’ program for our customers,” said Rogliano. “Instead, we consider this an opportunity to provide a measure of appreciation for MAXjet customers who choose to fly regularly with us.”

Rogliano further explains CAP’s differentiation from other airline loyalty programs. “Families and small businesses have the option of tagging up to five names to one CAP account number so they can bank and use their earnings together to build a free ticket more easily.”

Customers who have already traveled with MAXjet will be able to take full advantage of the program and bank the earnings they have accumulated from any flights taken since November 1. Full details of CAP will be announced on the Web site in January.

MAXjet provides personalized service, and its 102-seat configured interiors grant passengers spacious seating in luxurious leather seats with a deep recline and 60-inch seat pitch.

The New York to London Stansted flight departs JFK at 6:30 p.m. arriving Stansted at 7 a.m. the following day. The return flight departs London Stansted at 10 a.m. (local time) arriving JFK at 1:30 p.m. the same day. Flights operate Sunday through Friday. Fares begin at just $679.
