Steven Orfali, CEO of Wholesale Jet Club Checked in With Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson On Scoop B Radio & Discussed Chartered Jets. Press Play Below To Listen.
Over the weekend, Jay-Z appeared on Saturday Night Live. The jigga man rolled out hits from his latest 4:44 album, which dropped over the summer to rave reviews. His career has evolved and it is a delight to see and hear.
While performing, I began thinking about a multitude of turning points in his life where he’d seamlessly meshed his mainstream fans equally as well as his mixtape fans.
His Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse album is surely a case study.
Released November 12, 2002, Blueprint 2 boasted collaborations with Kanye West, Lenny Kravitz, Sean Paul, Dr. Dre, Rakim, Beyonce, M.O.P and Pharrell Williams.
To lightly quote actor Ben Stiller who played the role of Greg Focker in the film, Meet The Parents, Blueprint 2 had a “smorgasbord aptly lain at our table.”
“Excuse Me Miss,” a single on Blueprint 2 was produced by Pharrell Williams and showcases a more vulnerable Jay-Z who raps about love at first sight. After all, he promised the woman in the song: ‘all the keys and security codes’ to his homes.
One memorable line that stood out in that song was: “I don’t land at a airport, I call it the clearport.”
A WHAT??! A clearport!
Clearport is a nickname used for Teterboro Airport in Teterboro, New Jersey. A 12 mile distance from Manhattan, Teterboro Airport is used by business executives and celebrities conveniently chartering private aircrafts in and out of the New York metropolitan area.
Private jets have always been a thing. Instagram, snapchat and Twitter may have just caught up.
“The private jet world has been intact for quite a long time,” Wholesale Jet Club’s Steven Orfali told me on Scoop B Radio. “I guess regular people may not have realized how much these celebrities and athletes fly in private jets, but it’s been prevalent for years now.
“The reason they do it is because of privacy as well as being able to cater to their schedule. So if they have a concert that goes over a little bit late or a meeting that ends a little bit early, they go into a private airport and that doesn’t have to deal with the public and they get on to their own flight.”
Wholesale Jet Club prides itself on saving clients 20%-70% on their flights. Essentially, you save money by the company eliminating the middleman and bringing their vendors wholesale cost straight to you. For a small annual fee, members shed their expensive brokers, charter companies and jet cards to fly with them for the actual wholesale cost price.
Wholesale Jet Club CEO Steven Orfali featured on Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland which airing on Fox Business News and Bloomberg Television
Wholesale Jet Club, is the first subscription wholesale private jet charter service caters to many! An assortment of memberships can range from a quarterly membership at $1,499 to an annual membership at a $999 rate.
That’s an easy sell not just for athletes and celebrities, but for folks who fly pretty regularly, as well.
So the next time you hear someone reference a clearport, chartering a private plane or more, it’s nothing new.
