PrivateFly named UK’s fourth fastest-growing SME for international sales


Private charter platform PrivateFly has been named the UK’s fourth fastest-growing UK SME for international sales in The Sunday Times Heathrow SME Export Track 100 after achieving 239% growth over two years.

The annual league table, published in The Sunday Times on May 15, 2016, looks at companies’ international sales revenue as a percentage of total sales, and ranks the UK’s top 100 small and medium sized businesses over the past two years.

Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly, commented, “To be named the fourth fastest-growing SME exporter in the UK, across all industries, is such a source of pride for our whole team and fantastic recognition of the growth we’ve created over the past few years. Both in Europe, where our sales have been heading upwards for several years now and, more rapidly and recently, in the USA where we now have a permanent base, having opened a new office in Fort Lauderdale [Florida] earlier this year.

“PrivateFly has been a trailblazer for innovation in private jet charter over the past eight years. We’ve seen others enter the market since, validating our assertion that technology is the way ahead in our industry. But it’s clear that our combination of an online technology platform with a balanced focus on customer benefits and on our charter operator network, is an efficient and scalable business recipe for success.

“It doesn’t stop here. We have ambitious, further growth plans to further enhance our technology and proposition for charter operators, and to continue our successful roll-out to a greater number of global customers.”
