New Air Charter Broker Launches Membership Plan
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.
