New Air Charter Broker Launches Membership Plan

Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 8:50am

The recently launched Fame Route has announced a package of services ranging from discounted air charter flights, luxury car rentals and limousine service to upgrades at five-star hotels and VIP access to events and private golf clubs. The company does not own or operate airplanes, autos or facilities; rather, it acts as a broker and arranges what it says are "below-market rates made possible through the leveraged network resources of Fame Route." As an example, it cites estimated $3,500 charges for "reserved and scheduled private" roundtrip flights between New York and Miami. According to the company, it makes its money primarily from pay-as-you-go, $1,000-a-month membership fees. Headed by entrepreneur Gil Peter, Fame Route has offices in New York City and Kentucky.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
