Free Last Minute Deal

Everyday, we offer last minute flights for as little as £250.  These “Last Minute Deals” or “LMDs” provide an exceptional way to fly on a private jet for less than the price of a commercial business class ticket.  We post our LMDs on our website (www.flyblink.com), our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/flyblink), and our Twitter page (@flyblink).

For one lucky winner, they will have the choice of any of our LMDs for free.  To enter, simply Like Blink on Facebook. The first 1,000 fans will be entered into a draw to win an LMD of their choice.


Terms and conditions:
> Only the first 1,000 fans will be entered to the draw, of which one winner will be picked at random.
> The draw will be made once the Blink Facebook page (www.facebook.com/flyblink) reaches 1,000 fans.
> The winner will be notified by message to their Facebook account and their name anounced on the Blink Facebook page.
> The prize consists of one flight onboard a Blink Jet from a selection of LMDs.  A maximum of 4 passengers can travel, depending on the route.
> The flight must be taken by 31 December 2010.
> The flight is a one-way journey.  All taxes, insurances, transfers, spending money and other expenses, unless specifically stated, are the sole responsibility of the prize-winner.
> Each person is permitted one entry.  The lead passenger’s name must match that of the winning Facebook account holder.
> If a schedule change occurs that requires a time change of the Last Minute Flight, then the winner will be given the opportunity to reschedule the flight or select a different LMD.  If a schedule change occurs that cancels the Last Minute Flight, then the offer will be withdrawn and the winner shall have the opportunity to select a different LMD.

Last Minute Deals

Blink is pleased to offer Last Minute Deals on our fleet at exceptional prices. All prices are per-plane and as Blink jets carry maximum of four passengers, a fuller aircraft means a lower cost per person.

Peter Leiman, Blink’s MD and co-founder, commented,

We’ve moved from a website that was primarily informational to one that is transactional.  For the first time, travellers can price and book a private jet online.  This is an important step in expanding the customer base beyond those that have traditionally used private jets.  Our web savvy clients should appreciate these new developments.

Jake Peters, Blink’s Information Technology & Online Strategy Advisor, noted,

Online booking brings Blink further along the journey in developing an on-demand, private airline service which embodies the principles of low-cost aviation. Allowing our clients to explore prices online and book flights with a few clicks reduces Blink’s booking transaction cost, enabling us to continue offering the best prices — one of Blink’s core values. But unlike the low cost carriers, we do not view the online channel as a complete replacement for communicating directly with the Blink Flight Services team over phone or email. Rather, we view online booking as a key part of our mission to deliver exemplary service — another Blink core value — by enabling those who desire to book online the opportunity to do so.

You’ve asked for it and it’s coming….

I thought I’d give you a sneak peak of some of the exciting changes which we will introduce over the coming weeks. Since Blink launched, our core values of simplicity, innovation, and value-for-money have guided how we are differentiating ourself from our competitors.  These new developments continue to reinforce our position as Europe’s air taxi service.

Website

We are introducing new functionality and features which we think you’ll find very useful.

  • Online pricing and booking: you will finally be able to price your trips online and make a booking

Blink, and you’re on Wikipedia

Blink is now on Wikipedia!

Blink, the airline, on Wikipedia

Of course, there has been a Wikipedia page for Blink (“Blinking is the rapid closing and opening of the eyelid”) prior to the founding of Blink, the air taxi service.  But, you can now read about us, the airline, amongst pages on Blink (the book), Blink-182 (the band), and a handful of other items named Blink.

You may also be interested in this page on the Cessna Citation Mustang, the Blink jet.

The information in Wikipedia is not always up-to-date or completely accurate, so we recommend coming here, to the Blink website and blog, for the latest news.  However, we will continue to expand our Wikipedia page overtime and if you’d like to help, please let us know.
