Membership air travel company Rise said it has officially expanded private flight sharing to the entire Texas Triangle this week by adding multiple scheduled flights between Houston and Austin.
Initial routes began flying in July on the Dallas-Houston and Dallas-Austin legs, and the addition of eight flights per week between Houston and Austin means frequent travellers now have a better, faster option to reach the state´s largest business hubs.
“It´s been 50 years since the last fundamental shift in air travel, and it´s no coincidence that the ´Texas Triangle´ is the starting point for Rise to create a new standard for business travel,” said Nick Kennedy, CEO of Rise.
This new concept in air travel, called private flight sharing, allows members to fly all they want on private planes for one fee, starting at USD1,650 per month. Members can drive right up to the plane, step aboard, take off, and get home in time to enjoy their evening and spend it as they prefer. No endless parking garages, no lines, and no middle seats. It´s designed to be both time efficient and cost efficient — a private plane experience for the cost of flying frequent commercial.
Members report that flying Rise consistently saves up to three hours in travel time for each round trip, while the community of members and the personalized service provided by the Rise Member Services team creates a unique flying experience.
Members use the private side of the major commercial airports, bypassing the crowds and lines, and fly aboard Rise-branded King Air 350 eight-passenger, twin-engine aircraft.
Rise is a Dallas-based air travel membership company founded to serve the needs of frequent air travelers who appreciate the private air travel experience without the high costs of private plane ownership.
