Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Tuesday, 8 April 2008

Business Class airline Silverjet, has reported a record 23% increase in passenger traffic figures for the month of March 2008.

In March, Silverjet recorded both the largest ever gross profit and the smallest operating loss since it started flying multiple aircraft, despite an increase in fuel costs, indicating solid progress towards achieving its objective of becoming profitable in the near future.

Lawrence Hunt, Chief Executive of Silverjet, commented on the results, saying, We are delighted to report another record month of passenger statistics with all three of our routes increasing significantly, giving us our highest ever monthly revenues in March.

Silverjet attributes part of this success to its increasing appeal to corporate customers, who have found that the airlines premium service not only responds to their business travel needs, but enables them to fly at a more sensible price as compared to business class travel on the traditional airlines.

Silverjet's premium service and fares are attracting an increasing number of corporate customers, many of which are switching from the legacy carriers to benefit from our competitive prices and exceptional service, added Hunt.

Silverjet flights depart Dubai daily at 1030 and arrive in London Luton Airport at 1445. Return flights depart from London Luton at 2100 and arrive in Dubai at 0830. Connecting flights to New York Newark are also available, departing London Luton Airport at 1645.
