Global Jet Centre on the upswing in first half of 2017

Posted 18 July 2017 · Add Comment

Dubai-based air charter specialist Global Jet Centre reported a very strong first half year results with the number of arranged flights up by 30% compared to the same period last year.

The stellar six-month performance was welcome news in the industry still beset by challenges posed by the overall lethargic mood of the region’s economy.  Amidst the prevailing market condition, customers have become more stringent in securing more value for their money being aware that the market offers more options and better deals.

Managing Partner Bashar Beasha explains how Global Jet Centre manages to rise above the market turbulence and stay ahead of the game. He says, “Our service level and our focus to provide luxurious travel experience drive our repeat business – which is, of course, a sure precursor to word-of-mouth marketing.”

Global Jet Centre has more reasons to celebrate than just positive revenue and increased profit. The upswing momentum demonstrates the company’s competitiveness and resilience through tough economic times.

The report shows that Global Jet Centre is tapping into the right network of clientele.  A significant number of their clients are families and holiday makers who are more likely to be repeat clients in the second half of the year. Another positive indicator is the number of accustomed jet travelers who shifted to Global Jet Centre. Among the total number of flights arranged, 25% were for clients who had previously used other air charter service providers.

Forecast for the latter half of 2017 is fully optimistic. Bashar explains, “Since our beginning, Global Jet Centre has only seen positive results across all growth indicators year after year. The economic slowdown is a bane to many, but we have learned to tap into markets that remain strong in order to achieve better results. We are also looking at increased business flight bookings to help us finish even stronger.”
