ARGUS International, Inc. (ARGUS) is pleased to announce that PrivateFly has earned the ARGUS Certified Charter Broker rating, making them the first broker in the UK and only the second broker in Europe to earn this distinction.
As the most recognized and trusted source of information on the charter business around the world, the ARGUS Charter Broker Program raises the bar to meet the high expectations and due diligence requirements of charter consumers and commercial aircraft operators. Although there are many charter brokers in the industry, only the finest can qualify as an ARGUS Certified Charter Broker. The ARGUS Charter Broker Program is fully endorsed by the Baltic Air Charter Association (BACA).
“We are delighted to welcome PrivateFly as our newest ARGUS Certified Charter Broker,” said Joe Moeggenberg, President and CEO of ARGUS International, Inc. “PrivateFly has proven themselves as an exceptional brokerage based on sound business principles and a very well-trained and experienced staff. It brings ARGUS great pride to award PrivateFly with the Certified Broker status. Also a BACA member, PrivateFly’s recent certification is yet another step toward raising the standard within the charter broker industry to provide operators and consumers with charter brokers they can trust, and that are truly dedicated to providing cost-effective, secure air transportation.”
“We’re proud and absolutely delighted that PrivateFly is one of the first brokers to receive this certification,” said Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly. “It’s a welcome validation for our whole team. The scrutiny of the audit was something we really welcomed and enjoyed. At PrivateFly, we focus on continuous improvement and development – and the process helped to raise some ideas for our future evolution.”
Twidell went on to say, “For years, the charter broker has been a key part of the supply chain that was not audited, so it’s great to be a trailblazer in that change. Operators are highly-regulated, and FBOs now have the new IS-BAH standard. Now, professional brokers can stand out from their field with the new ARGUS Certified Broker status.
Mr. Moeggenberg will present PrivateFly with their Certified Charter Operator plaque at EBACE in booth #E066 on Tuesday, May 24th at 11:30 CEST.
Consistent with the ARGUS Gold and Platinum rating program for charter operators, the ARGUS Charter Broker Program is designed to provide end consumers and aircraft operators with unbiased, factual and relevant data necessary to make informed and confident decisions every time they participate in a charter flight facilitated through a charter broker. An ARGUS Certified Charter Broker must be able to prove compliance, through an on-site audit, against a demanding set of industry best practices, and demonstrate knowledge and compliance with any applicable regulations or standards that are imposed upon a charter broker. An ARGUS Certified Charter Broker rating uniquely identifies that Broker as one that emphasizes legal, secure and comfortable air travel for their clients on every flight.
