The new airline service is particularly beneficial to Newark area frequent business travelers, who can now enjoy a comfortable environment while remaining productive, thanks to the convenient connectivity features available on all flights.

These desired benefits are confirmed in a poll conducted by Virgin America in February 2013, when frequent flyers provided feedback on what aspects of business travel they would like to change or improve upon. Here are the results of the poll:

  • When asked about their “most wanted” airline amenity when traveling for business, 40 percent of those surveyed noted the availability of nonstop flight options, followed by 24 percent who said their top requested business travel feature was the availability of in-flight WiFi.
  • Over 50 percent of respondents use a laptop or electronic device to get work done on every flight they take, with a further 34 percent using their electronic devices every two to three flights.
  • 32 percent use in-flight WiFi on every WiFi-enabled flight they take; a further 14 percent use WiFi at least once per trip; and an additional 19 percent use in-flight WiFi occasionally (every two to three WiFi-enabled flights they take).
  • Delays were rated as the most frustrating aspect of business travel – noted by a full 33 percent of respondents – followed by not enough legroom or seat space (16 percent).

The economic benefits of this newest Newark Airport arrival will also be substantial, with new job positions, opportunities and increased economic growth for the state of New Jersey.

Even if you weren’t previously planning to travel to/from Newark International Airport, maybe it’s time to find an excuse to travel, just to check out the amenities available on Virgin America flights! This welcome new addition to Newark Liberty will surely bring even more desirable options and great economic benefits to the Newark vicinity.

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!

Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable. I especially liked the 24 hour and 2 hour trip notification that was sent via email. It was reassuring to know they were following up. I highly recommend Corporate Sedan for any transportation needs!
