LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/13 -- Today, Surf Air, the nation's first all-you-can-fly, membership-based private air service, added Santa Barbara to its daily schedule. The first flight departs Santa Barbara for the San Francisco Bay Area at 8:15 a.m.
"Surf Air's arrival in Santa Barbara is a game changer for my work with innovative startups and investors throughout California," said Founding Member Matthew Stotts. "Leaving my car and commercial airlines behind, Surf Air makes my travel up and down the California coast far faster and more productive. And now a weekend getaway to LA or San Francisco is just as easy."
Launched just one month ago, Surf Air is a new, convenient and affordable way to fly between the Los Angeles metro area, San Francisco Bay Area, and now the Santa Barbara area. For a nominal monthly fee, members have access to unlimited monthly intrastate flights on executive aircraft to and from private air terminals. In addition, members receive guest passes, invitations to exclusive member events and access to a first-class concierge service.
"I've very much been looking forward to Surf Air's arrival in Santa Barbara," said Founding Member Matthew Stotts. "I commute between Santa Barbara and San Francisco by car multiple times a week and Surf Air will allow me to be more productive while providing me with additional leisure time. I can't wait to leverage the service on weekends to visit friends in San Francisco and LA and for last minute getaways."
Surf Air members have the "all-you-can-fly" choice of 16 conveniently scheduled flights each day between three key California destinations. Surf Air plans to expand its routes throughout California and across the nation in the coming months*.
In June, Surf Air received its FAA Operating Certificate and a B round of funding led by Velos Partners and Base Ventures. Additional investors include Anthem Venture Partners, NEA, Structure Capital, actor Jared Leto, TriplePoint Capital, Siemer Ventures, Baroda Ventures, Gilad and Eytan Elbaz, Rick Caruso, Jeffrey Stibel and Jonathan Schreiber.
