Vertis Aviation, the Switzerland-headquartered charter specialist, is today celebrating a decade of delivering charter services to an international set of customers. Vertis partners Jeffrey Emmenis and Julian Burrell are marking the occasion by pivoting the business towards its foundations of curating highly personalised charters of large-cabin, long-range jets and executive airliners for some of the world’s most influential and affluent businesses, families and individuals.
The decision of the Argus Certified Broker business to solidify its niche as Architects of Charter has been driven by the needs of its loyal clientele. “Before the global pandemic we had been analysing our client behaviour and recognised that we have a core set of customers that consistently request large-cabin, long-range aircraft and welcome our qualified advice and guidance when organising their often-complex journeys. During the summer season we welcomed a new set of customers equally excited to discover the tangible benefits of our service when compared with first class commercial travel,” explains Vertis Chairman Julian Burrell. “Our customers value our safe, efficient, discrete service, and our emphasis on treating them in a very personal way in an increasingly digitised world. This differentiates us from many other charter sales companies.”
Vertis has built a reputation as a customer-centric boutique private jet consultancy which shines a spotlight on every detail ensuring customers enjoy seamless travel experiences. Its buying power, supplier support and an extensive, meaningful global network built over the last ten years underpins the strategy. Vertis is also adding a new set of features specifically designed for discerning Vertis customers, including augmentation of existing Vertis technology to enhance the overall customer experience in relation to flight management, invoicing and communication flow. In true Vertis style the occasion will be marked by personal outreach to customers, suppliers, and partners, and will be celebrated with the launch of an exciting new programme of defining travel experiences in partnership with leading brands from around the globe.
The Vertis Charter Management Program (VCMP) is also expanding with the imminent addition of new aircraft in Africa and the USA. One of the original pillars of the Vertis business model the VCMP has proved highly successful in supporting owners and/or operators looking for outsourced professional charter sales management. The arrangement enables operators to maintain focus on the core competency of aircraft operations while generating revenue through the agreement with Vertis. Customers benefit from access to a wider range of aircraft available through the Vertis boutique charter service.
The Vertis team works from an international network of offices located in Zug, London, Beverly Hills, Dubai, and Cape Town marketing a select portfolio of business aircraft including a Global 6000, Global 5000, Gulfstream G450, Challenger 604 and a Challenger 350.
