The Travel Authority Inc. Becomes
BusinessJet Class Subscriber 
New York NY (May 24, 2005) -- BusinessJet Class, the private jet charter GDS, has signed a subscriber agreement with The Travel Authority, Inc. (TTA), one of America's top twenty travel management companies, giving TTA agents access to private jet charter booking technology that advances the company's aggressive marketing to corporate channels. 

“BusinessJet Class brings a 24/7 agent-friendly, fully automated GDS-style booking system to the services The Travel Authority offers its clients, ”said Gus Alba, BusinessJet Class Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  “BusinessJet Class gives TTA  travel professionals access to expanded resources for booking  private jets, providing resources that are attractive particularly to their corporate travelers: quick, reliable, guaranteed fare quotes, on carriers that offer the highest safety standards.” 

In addition to the GDS booking capabilities, BusinessJet Class gives subscribers peace of mind because the charter operators who are featured on the system meet or exceed the  highest safety standards in the industry. “Private air charter has always been the safest way to  travel and community airports and charter operators form a community that has developed  high levels of safety and security awareness,” noted Alba.  “As a BusinessJet Class subscriber, The Travel Authority becomes part of this community."

“The Travel Authority is very pleased to become a BusinessJet Class subscriber,” said Doug Payne, TTA, Inc. Vice President, Sales and Marketing. ”Private jet charter is an increasingly important product in the travel mix for both our corporate and our vacation clients. It is also a valuable element for us to add to our meeting and group sales services. The Travel Authority/BusinessJet Class agreement is a win-win for both companies and our clients.”
