New Web Site Launched To Promote Air Taxi Service In Virginia

Allows Online Reservations For Multiple Operators

The Virginia SATSLab (VSATS), in partnership with the Air Taxi Association (ATXA), has officially launched, a new on-demand flight reservations system. allows travelers to book on-demand flights from air taxi and air charter operators instantly. In addition, the site features information on the next-generation air taxi industry, commonly-used air taxi aircraft, a question-and-answer section and a detailed directory of all public-use airports in Virginia.

"Virginia has always been at the forefront of accelerating next-generation aviation," said Keith McCrea, executive director of VSATS. "This Web site will help foster community airport utilization across the 64 local airports throughout the Commonwealth."

The reservations system allows any operator to be displayed on the system via ATXA and Door2DoorAir. Operators that allow customer interaction may be added to the system in as little as one business day.

"In launching, Virginia has taken a leading role in creating public awareness about on-demand flights from their local airports onward to wherever they need to go," said Joe Leader, president of ATXA. "This opens an opportunity for every community airport to have direct flights to hundreds of destinations. These on-demand, direct flights will be a driver of economic development to communities across the state."

The new Web site will be demonstrated at booth 3006, hosted by Virginia and ATXA, at the 61st Annual National Business Aviation Association Meeting & Convention (NBAA 2008) in Orlando, Florida. NBAA 2008 will host nearly 33,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors.

ATXA is an alliance of next-generation air taxi providers that offer direct, on-demand flight service at greatly reduced prices.
