Podcast: New Customers for Charter Operators

July 6, 2020

The desire to minimize exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus is driving a whole new group of potential customers to inquire about chartering business aircraft. “This isn’t a one-off for these new, first-time charters. They’re going to do several of them,” said Barry Goldberg, general manager at OpenAir. “If we can convince them over the course of two or three charters that this is absolutely the way to go — it’s so much more convenient, it’s so much more sanitary — we feel that we can convert everybody to lifetime clients.”

In this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Taylor Butterfield, flight department manager for Cutter Aviation
  • Barry Goldberg, general manager at OpenAir
  • Rufus James, manager of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE)
  • Marshall Myles, CEO of Fort Lauderdale Executive Jet Center
