CLEARWATER, Fla., -- July 5, 2011 -- Avantair, Inc. (OTCBB:AAIR), the industry leader for fractional aircraft ownership and flight hour time cards in the light jet cabin category and the only publicly traded stand-alone private aircraft operator, introduces two, new owner benefit programs – a 90-day satisfaction guarantee for prospective owners of a Piaggio Avanti and an affinity program offering valuable incentives for current owners.



Owners purchasing a new fractional share in a Piaggio Avanti aircraft will receive the peace of mind that comes with a 90-day satisfaction guarantee. If an owner isn’t fully satisfied with their Avantair experience, Avantair will buy back their share. This offer applies to new fractional share owners with signed contracts during the effective dates of July 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.


Avantair also continues to provide added benefit to its valued group of existing owners through Owner Advantage, an affinity program that creates exclusive offers, promotions and discounts for owners with a variety of corporate relationships, some of which are worth thousands of dollars. Examples of current Owner Advantage programs include:

  • Judith Ripka — Avantair owners receive a gift card to discover the beauty, timeless style and understated elegance that has made Judith Ripka the ultimate in 18 karat gold jewelry.
  • HomeWaters Club — Avantair owners receive exclusive “scholarships” to group and one-on-one instruction sessions by some of the legends of the fly fishing world.
  • Inspirato — Avantair owners receive a complimentary membership to an exclusive club of luxury homes in the world’s finest destinations.
  • Hertz — Avantair owners receive Hertz #1 Club Gold service.

The new Owner Advantage program and 90-day guarantee complement the already existing owner benefit programs including the Loyalty Program, which awards additional flight hours or monetary incentives to renewing owners and the Ambassador Program, which was developed to involve owners in the sales process and reward them for their referrals to Avantair.

“We understand that investing in a private aircraft is a significant decision, so we wanted to provide additional value and peace of mind to ensure the Avantair owner experience is unparalleled in the industry,” said Steve Santo, founder and CEO of Avantair. “Owner satisfaction is our top priority and we will continue to invest in programs that benefit both current as well as prospective Avantair owners.”
