Below is our recent interview with Craig Hammon from Monarch Air Group:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Established in 2006, Monarch Air Group is a leading provider of on-demand air charter and private jet solutions for Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and discerning individuals around the globe. Since its inception, Monarch Air Group has become a true pioneer in its industry, known for its commitment to safety and security, superior customer service, and cutting-edge product innovation. Monarch Air Group is recognized and admired for global critical relief efforts; it provides evacuation and airlifted supplies for natural disasters, conducts aerial fire-fighting services, and brought families home when the COVID-19 pandemic closed international borders. Monarch Air Group is featured across the web, on television around the globe, and partners with world-renowned brands, artists, and influencers. Monarch Air Group continues to grow its legacy as it develops groundbreaking technologies with the simple goal of making our lives easier and safer than ever.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Monarch Air Group, a leading provider of on-demand air charter, has introduced new, proprietary software designed to provide convenient, instant travel quotes directly from your desktop, laptop, tablet, and smartphone– no membership required. Packed with intelligent features and breakthrough technology that provide customers an enhanced user experience, this software opens the curtain by including all aircraft details to make an educated decision and select the best jet for your needs: including aircraft amenities, safety ratings, year of make, year of refurbishment(s), interior and exterior images, filter by age of aircraft, estimated flight time, and passenger capacity.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: All jetsetters need to do is select whether the trip is one way or round trip, the number of passengers, what location the plane is leaving from and where it’s going to, and on what date and time. In seconds, a litany of options populates the screen based on your selected filters. Gone are the days of booking private aircraft by calling a charter broker who may take hours to provide a quote and unearth flight details.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Monarch Sir Group has announced its Carbon Offset Program and goal of Carbon Neutrality by 2025. Its focus is to achieve net-zero carbon status by 2025, offsetting 100% of client travel and direct business-related travel emissions not previously offset by aircraft operators. This undertaking will position Monarch Air Group amongst a select group of sustainable aviation pioneers, one inclusive of only a handful of business aviation brokerages.
“As an environmentally responsible company, we are committed to the environment and implementation of environmental sustainability practices into our operations and relationships with our suppliers,” said David Gitman, President of Monarch Air Group.
Monarch Air Group is engaging in multiple carbon offset projects annually, basing this initiative on respective performance capabilities, ratings, project location, credits availability, and accreditations, including a CORSIA standard program. On its path to carbon-neutrality, the company partnered with Carbon Trade eXchange (CTX), a European-based exchange, considered the world’s first and largest electronic exchange for buyers and sellers of carbon credits.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
Years of industry experience have solidified Monarch Air Group as the go-to air charter service for luxury, flexibility, efficiency, and privacy. Monarch Air Group importantly provides its customers with a single point of contact, a charter specialist, which is a key factor in ensuring all aspects of the flight are successful.
