Like most decision-makers today, automotive executives continuously are looking for ways to operate more efficiently and effectively.
Even in a world where technology keeps us more connected and informed than ever before, there is tremendous and arguably irreplaceable value in face-to-face time. All too often, however, busy schedules and complex logistics make that personal engagement seem difficult, if not impossible.
In response to these pressures, and to enhance and streamline business operations, one customer-centric solution automotive companies are turning to is business aviation.
With that in mind, it makes sense for automotive decision-makers to appreciate the advantage of business aviation, to understand the different programs available to them and to familiarize themselves with how to vet and select potential business aviation partners.
There are many advantages to private business air travel, one in particular being critical in today’s fast-paced environment: the ability to see products firsthand and get in front of people more often in a wider variety of locations. Time is a precious commodity and the strict schedules, frequent delays and limited destinations of commercial airlines can be frustrating, limiting and costly. With business aviation, you gain significant efficiency and productivity by being able to dictate the flight dates and times to fit your schedule, fly on short notice, reach multiple locations in a single day and have access to nearly 10 times as many locations as commercial airliners do. Consider that while major public airlines fly to around 500 airports, private aircraft can fly to nearly 3,000 destinations across North America nonstop.
When determining whether to invest in a business-aviation program, one of the most important decisions is what type of program would be the best fit for your company.
