Private Jet Services (PJS), a worldwide private aviation consulting firm, announces a new strategic partnership with Arise Air. Going forward, all Arise Air employees will work out of the PJS corporate headquarters in New Hampshire, and Bryan Ellis, President of Arise Air, will act as the new Director of Executive Aircraft Operations for PJS. In this role, Ellis will oversee all executive jet vendor relationships and sourcing for PJS. Arise Air customers will have the opportunity to work with PJS’ experienced Flight Concierge department and have access to aircraft ranging from light executive jets to VIP configured airliners.
Ellis founded Arise Air in 2005 after helping two of the larger private charter brokerages in the country gain traction in the marketplace. For 10 years Ellis has served Arise Air clients with innovative programs such as Arise Air’s Boutique Level Jet Membership program and with a commitment to sourcing the safest aircraft available on the market.
According to Ellis, “I am thrilled to join PJS. They have been a leader in the private aviation space for quite some time and I am looking forward to introducing my Arise Air clients to the unmatched customer service PJS provides. My goal as Director of Executive Jet Operations will be to ensure that both Arise Air and PJS customers have unrivaled access to the newest and safest jets available for charter.”
Founder and CEO of PJS, Greg Raiff, said, “Bryan’s expertise will help PJS maintain its competitive edge and continue to provide an unbeatable customer experience. We are excited for him to join our team and look forward to working with Arise Air’s clients for years to come.”
In 2013, PJS secured a $10 million line of credit with RBS Citizens bank for the purpose of acquiring complementary organizations in the private aviation space and forming strategic partnerships. Regarding the line of credit, Raiff said, “the substantial funding by RBS Citizens provides the unique opportunity to work with many companies, including Arise Air, that do a fantastic job in our industry, and we are looking forward to partnering with the best of them.”
