Having movie stars like Lindsay Lohan in his entourage isn’t the only thing that can enhance the quality of Emir Bahadir’s frequent trips across the world. The jet-setting Turkish CEO and Instagram sensation travels far and travels often (while hashtagging #bahadiring along the way), exclusively using the emerging travel company Executive Flights for his bookings. “Due to my busy schedule and meetings all over the world, Executive Flights is always able to get me the best deals out there,” he said.
The young start-up, Executive Flights, is headed by Torontonian Yosef Rosenzweig and for those who are committed to the comfort and luxury of higher class travel, it is able to offer deals that they would be unable to get online. Through their team of professionals with a deep understanding of the field and who are encouraged to continue to think outside of the box, they are able to regularly find shockingly low prices. For this reason the company has succeeded in gaining clientele from across the world, including a thrilled Bahadir.
To Rosenzweig, finding the cheapest business and first class tickets available is something like a competitive sport. A sport that he competes mostly against himself and a sport that he wins time and time again. Since 2011, the young entrepreneur and his growing team have assisted hundreds of executives and corporate clients with their travel, offering them the opportunity to drastically improve their travel experience at the lowest possible costs. The company excels at finding the right flight on the right airline, while beating out any quoted online price by margins of 20 to 40 percent.
“Its really fun to be able to find someone a specifically great deal for their luxury travel while ensuring that the timing and convenience all fit exactly to the client’s needs,” said Rosenzweig. “I see it to be my duty to go through the necessary process to make sure that when I promise someone the best deal out there, they get the best deal out there.”
It is this passion for surprising the people who use his company with unbeatable prices and friendly service that has ensured that the company’s clients keep coming back and can’t seem to recommend this company enough. Largely through word-of-mouth endorsements, Executive Flights has grown exponentially over its short six years, expanding globally to include ambassadors and staff in the U.S., Australia, and Israel, as well as a satellite office in the U.K.
With a simple email describing when and where you want to travel, Rosenzweig’s team launches into a full on investigation to find the best flight, cheapest fare, and most comfortable seat. They respond immediately with options and ideas, ensuring that the client remains in the loop while they work their magic. They excel in finding great deals even at the last minute, with access to reduced costs for business class airfare from all the elite airlines. This ease and convenience is nearly entirely unmatched within the industry, which is an aspect that Malaysian bussinesswoman and Executive Assistant to the CEO of iCarAsia, Grace Ngai Wai Yee, deeply appreciates. “[ Executive FlightsThe company offers] prompt responses, detailed, with suggested cheaper flight options,” she said. “I’ll definitely recommend Executive Flights.”
While finding deals is what they do best, as most businesses know, what sets companies apart is often the ability to excel in their industry while maintaining high levels of customer service and flexibility. This is another area where Executive Flights goes unmatched. The Australian Executive Chairman of Skins, Jaime Fuller, specifically values this quality in this young start-up.
“Yosef and the team at Executive Flights are geniuses – no other way to word this. My travel schedule is a nightmare and they not only get the job done brilliantly but do so in the nicest and friendliest way possible. This means a great deal to me as I like to do business with people who I like, not just those that offer excellent value for money – which, of course, they also most definitely do. I recommend Executive Flights to all my friends and business colleagues without reservation.”
As Fuller has come to learn, this team has been highly successful with discovering areas for strong savings on business class travel in and out of Australia. To handle the growing number of clients from this region and to work on continued expansion, Mick Nadalin has recently joined the Executive Flights family to act as the ambassador for the Australian division of the company. The entrepreneur has spent years immersed in the Australian luxury lifestyle and offers a deep understanding of sales, business strategy, and business development. “We are extremely excited about the continued expansion of our company and are confident that Mick will strongly enhance our business growth,” said Rosenzweig. “His passion for the industry and his business know-how has already given our company a giant boost in the right direction.”
It is therefore no surprise that this young company is projected to continue to soar throughout 2018, even as travel agencies continue to falter and fade. The consistent positive feedback from diverse and widespread clients points to something truly remarkable and exciting going on in an industry that had been left for dead since companies like Priceline and Expedia revolutionized online and automated flight bookings. Their numbers and growth speak for themselves as indicators of their success and ability to enhance the experience of travelers from all over the world. Executive Flights has managed to find a niche and provide a service that had been heretofore overlooked.
“People are always surprised to learn that we have found a way to succeed in this industry in this day and age,” said Rosenzweig. “But to me it’s quite simple. We spend our energy on finding people great deals while providing them with friendly service and stress-free interactions. We like and value our clients and they in turn like and value us.”
Perhaps it is this last aspect that really makes this company so unique.
