Gold Performance by Silverjet

March 24th, 2008 by

In an era where airlines continue to do things wrong, it seems one at least is doing some things right. Silverjet, a British airline offering a private plane experience for significantly less cost, recently released some impressive statistics for February, showing 87% of their departures were on time and that they had filled 10% more seats than the previous month.

“We are delighted to report that Silverjet is the most punctual airline on both our London to New York and London to Dubai services,” says Lawrence Hunt, chief executive of Silverjet.

“Official data published by the Civil Aviation Authority this week confirms that Silverjet, for the third consecutive month in a row, is the top on time performer on the London to New York route and the top performer on London to Dubai for the second month in a row, which is extremely gratifying after only two months of operation. For the year as a whole, Silverjet was the top UK carrier flying from London to New York. We are very proud of this excellent performance which demonstrates our focus on service delivery. We look forward to maintaining our pole position throughout 2008.”
