Top 5 Questions
What makes Surf Air different from commercial?
Commercial air travelers are accustomed to the complicated, cumbersome, and expensive processes of the current flying experience. From tedious comparison-shopping to flight traffic and congestion at commercial airports to endless delays and crowded lines, air travelers waste valuable time and money daily.
Becoming a Surf Air member introduces you to a revolutionary way to fly. It gives you the freedom of unlimited flights, 30-second booking, and a new and easy arrive-and-fly process. This is how flying should be.
What makes it different from other private or charter options?
Flying in a private charter or jet can be expensive, with much planning required well in advance. With Surf Air, you can book flights minutes before departure and have the experience of flying in a private aircraft without private jet pricing, and in the company of no more than 7 other Members—like-minded travelers who you’ll come to know by name. However, Surf Air, through its third-party flight operators, offers flights based on a schedule, so unlike chartered service, you’ll need to choose from available flight times.
How do I know if it’s right for me?
If you drive two to six hours regularly or fly commercial for more than two round-trips in a region where we have destinations, you need a Surf Air membership. No need to waste valuable work (or play) time stuck in long airport lines, on hold with call centers, or navigating through complicated online bookings. Surf Air eliminates the pain, hassle, and wasted time that accompany current travel options. With all that extra time, you could be focusing on what matters most.
Where does Surf Air fly?
Surf Air flyers can travel in and out of convenient local airports in California. Our most popular California destinations include the San Francisco Bay Area (via San Carlos Airport – SQL), Los Angeles (via Hawthorne Airport – HHR), Lake Tahoe (via Truckee Airport – TRK), and Santa Barbara (via Santa Barbara Airport – SBA).
What’s the difference between scheduled and On Demand flights?
Scheduled flights are pre-set chartered routes for members to join. These are usually planned months in advance to join. On Demand flights are private charter flights where a member creates a custom route by requesting a departure airport, time, and aircraft where they have full access to all of the aircraft passenger seats for their party.
