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.
"With the addition of another attractive destination, we look forward to offering our members increased flexibility in their travel options, whether for business or leisure," said Wade Eyerly, Co-Founder and CEO for Surf Air. "In the past month, we've watched members change the way they travel when presented with an all-you-can-fly model. The new Santa Barbara route will now allow pleasure-seekers a new and exciting way to leverage the service and will make business between Santa Barbara and Silicon Valley easier."
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.
"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."
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.
