In a modified version of JetBlue‘s 2009 All You Can Fly program, a team of California brothers plans to launch Surf Air, an airline to serve executives and others willing to pay a monthly membership fee for unlimited travel up and down the west coast.
“Surf Air will allow busy travelers to book a stress-free trip without price-comparison shopping – maybe even an hour before departure,” said Wade Eyerly, CEO and Founder of Surf Air and previously an intelligence officer/aide to former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Teaming with brother David Eyerly, a former manager of the Dallas Fort-Worth airport for Frontier Airlines, the Surf Air plan is to sign on 500 Founding Members for its first launch market servicing Palo Alto, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles for as low as $790 a month.
That’s a bit more than previous versions of the plan but Surf Air members get more too.
