Agreement Offers GetThere Customers Seamless Global Access to Private Jet Bookings
SOUTHLAKE, Texas – (Jan. 31, 2011) – Sabre Travel Network’s GetThere, the world’s leading travel and collaboration management solution, announces the launch of a new partnership with JetUs(sm), LLC as its preferred vendor for GetThere users interested in booking private jet services.
“With the JetUs relationship, GetThere continues to expand its global offerings for our customers,” said Suzanne Neufang, general manager of GetThere. “The JetUs solution provides our clients with a unique value proposition by seamlessly delivering the ability to charter private aircraft online, while offering tremendous efficiencies and corporate compliance.”
JetUs is a secure, web-based reservation tool that offers real-time, accurate availability to GetThere users so that they can find, book and manage private jets from best-in-class, safety-rated operators throughout the world. JetUs allows users to:
- Instantly receive multiple quotes
- See aircraft photos

- Purchase and manage all details of the trip including catering and baggage handling
- Leverage auditing controls for budget and expense management reporting
Through JetUs, GetThere customers can access a large variety of jets of various sizes including turbo props, light jets, midsize jets, large cabin aircraft, and charter airliners. Using JetUs, travel managers can easily charter an aircraft based on the client’s schedule and customize the itinerary based on their needs. Additionally, travel managers will now have direct access to the largest database of “empty-leg” flights for those willing to exchange last-minute flexibility for an average cost savings up to 40% off the regular cost to fly privately.
“The GetThere-JetUs agreement provides companies with easy access to private jet services globally,” said JetUs Vice President of Business Development, Jennifer Wetstein. “We believe this will give GetThere customers a totally new way to approach air travel. Flying privately is more flexible, providing speed and convenience, while addressing fiscal responsibility due to the productivity gains often associated with this mode of air travel. ”
Private jet service enables business travelers to work more efficiently by allowing passengers continued use of Wi-Fi and mobile services on the ground and throughout the duration of the flight. Also, being able to take more direct routes from regional airports around the world saves time for corporations, eliminates expenses associated with overnight travel, thus creating a more efficient way to work.
In addition to JetUs private jet booking, GetThere also offers customers the ability to book meetings, black cars, and high definition video conferences, and manage expenses.
