Virgin Charter, Find Your Perfect Match (to Fly You Somewhere)

Richard Branson and Virgin, launched Virgin Charter a travel matchmaking site. It essentially works like this:

1. You want to travel somewhere
2. You look in your pocket and see a lot of money
3. You go on Virgin Charter and find a person with a plane that is willing to take your rich self wherever you want to go
4. Enjoy your travel destination a few thousand bucks lighter, and a lot less stressed

This is a good idea with NetJets and their Marquis Jet program out there looking for customers and many travelers seeking hassle-free travel over discount travel. In addition, with more chartered travel opportunities, the price may fall making chartered travel more possible for a larger group of people.

As many of the U.S. airlines are experiencing difficulties, once again Virgin is thinking outside of the box to revolutionize the travel industry.

I don't know about this. One thing tells me this is a great approach at being environmentally-conscious about private jet travel, but why would Branson do it if it weren't for the money?

It's totally for the money. At the end of the day the Dollar (Euro, or Pound) rules the day.

However, I do think that Branson has some altruistic motives behind his business decisions. I think that he figures if he can make a buck and help the environment at the same time, then its all good.

Whether it works remains to be seen.
