Take Air to be first all-you-can-fly membership airline in Europe
Antwerp, 4 December 2014 – Belgium’s newest airline is Take Air, the first all-you-can-fly membership airline in Europe. Its innovative concept offers unlimited flights for a fixed monthly fee. Take Air only uses business aircraft from General Aviation Terminals that are also used for private and business flights. This allows passengers to check in up to 15 minutes before departure without any stress, luggage hassle or long queues. Take Air will start with two scheduled flights: Antwerp-Zurich and Paris-London. Its first flight is scheduled in March 2015. You can now register for the Take Air waiting list on www.flytakeair.com
Take Air is the first new airline to be established in Belgium since 2003. In 2014, the world of aviation
has become so different that new business models are being introduced. “Take Air is not just another
airline,” Take Air founder and General Manager Matthieu Dardenne says. “It is the first all-you-can-fly
membership airline launched in Europe. As a Take Air member, you enjoy unlimited Take Air flights
and the best of what aviation currently has to offer: hassle-free air travel that saves time and avoids
any unpleasant surprises. It is the ideal solution for anyone who flies a lot for business or personal reasons. Memberships start at 1,650€ per month without any hidden extras.”
Flexible, comfortable and time-saving
Take Air only flies business aircraft – such as the Beechcraft King Air 200 and 350 – from and to the business terminals (General Aviation Terminals). This provides members a high level of comfort with a lounge, meeting rooms, sufficient in-flight legroom and no long security or boarding queues. They will no longer have to look for a parking space as they can park right by the terminal. “If you travel to a certain destination more than twice a month, Take Air can already offer you better value, save you time and give you more travel comfort,” Matthieu Dardenne adds. “Flying with us will easily save you 90 minutes on each leg of your trip, as you can check in up to 15 minutes before departure. This
should not be underestimated. As a Take Air member, you also receive the personal assistance of an Airport Angel, who will be there to help you organise your travel. Our web app allows you to book and cancel your flights in less than 30 seconds.”
150 possible connections in Europe
Take Air focuses on routes under 90 minutes of flight that provide a strategic or economic link. It is no coincidence that Take Air’s first scheduled flights are between Antwerp and Zurich and Paris and London. These connections were chosen following a comprehensive study of the entire Take Air concept performed by Vlerick Business School. According to the study, no less than 150 European destinations are suitable for Take Air’s concept. It is therefore Take Air’s ambition to add a number of new connections to its range every 6 months. The Take Air website always allows users to request routes for the future.
Frequent daily flights
Take Air will start its operations in March 2015 with several daily flights between Antwerp and Zurich and Paris and London. The objective is to offer up to 5 flights a day in each direction. In Antwerp, flights will depart from the new General Aviation Terminal (GAT) that will open in 2015.
