NEW YORK – October 6, 2008 – Reminding customers that transatlantic travel in today’s tight economy doesn’t have to mean sacrificing comfort for cost, OpenSkies today announced new low fares in its PREM+ cabin for the first 1,000 customers each on its New York – Paris and New York – Amsterdam routes.
Starting today, OpenSkies will offer PREM+ fares for $499* one way between New York and Amsterdam and $599* one way between New York and Paris, with all fares based on round trip purchase. OpenSkies’ PREM+ cabin is a completely new service category offering comfort, space, service and amenities that rival many competing business class offerings. With its cost-efficient fares, PREM+ also qualifies for use by business travelers whose corporate travel policies would otherwise restrict business class travel. OpenSkies’ extraordinary PREM+ sale will continue until the 1,000th ticket is booked on each route.
“As frequent travelers ourselves, we can appreciate how important a comfortable seat with a generous recline, more legroom, and attentive cabin service can be on a long flight, and we believe a challenging economy doesn’t have to put those things out of reach,” said Dale Moss, managing director of OpenSkies. “With a maximum of just 40 guests in our PREM+ cabin, we offer a business class experience without the business class price tag. In many ways, the PREM+ cabin is tailor made for today’s economic environment.
“We believe PREM+ is a compelling choice for business travelers who need to be more price-conscious than ever before, as well as for leisure travelers on the lookout for value, comfort and a premium travel experience from start to finish,” Moss added.
OpenSkies PREM+ is a unique class of service providing features such as:
- Leather seats with a 140 degree recline.
- 52 inches of legroom.
- Bottle-poured wines.
- Fresh, healthy meal service.
- Personal entertainment systems with more than 50 hours of programming.
- Electric outlets at every seat.
In addition to its high-quality in-flight experience, OpenSkies offers professional concierge services that provide passengers with a premium travel experience from the moment they book their flight through the end of their trip. Multilingual concierge agents are available to assist OpenSkies guests with requests including hotel reservations, sightseeing tours, quick translations and other services. OpenSkies guests can also benefit from participation in British Airways’ Executive Club frequent flyer program.
