DALLAS - June 27, 2016 - PRLog -- This Independence Day, frequent business travelers will celebrate their freedom from the hassle of flying commercially by taking to the skies withRISE (http://iflyrise.com/). The Dallas-based technology company, which is celebrating its one-year anniversary next month, is revolutionizing frequent business travel by providing access to scheduled and on-demand flights via its platform of operator-owned aircraft. RISE offers its members unlimited monthly flying and the ability to arrive just minutes before a flight, park feet from the private terminal and board the plane with a handful of other business leaders, entrepreneurs and forward-thinking travelers.

"As a frequent business traveler with several million miles of commercial travel I often felt powerless when dealing with commercial airlines and crowded airports," said founder and CEO Nick Kennedy. "I am one of millions of travelers that have wasted countless hours standing in lines, waiting on delayed flights and boarding packed flights. We created RISE to put the power back in the hands of our members by giving them the most valuable commodity in the world - time - while offering a remarkable travel experience."

RISE set out to improve and return respect to the travel business by offering scheduled service between highly traveled city pairs on time, every time, for a flat-rate monthly fee. The company officially took to the skies in July 2015 and has hit the milestone of its 13,000th member served. RISE, which operates 60 flights a week to airports in Dallas, Austin and Houston, estimates it has saved those fliers over 30,000 hours with its efficient model at a cost significantly lower than flying private. It plans to launch scheduled service to additional cities in Texas and beyond within the next 12 months.

RISE operates a proprietary technology platform that accesses underutilized resources in the aviation sector and connects those resources to the demands of its members. Operators that work with RISE have experienced a dramatic increase in aircraft, pilot and mechanic utilization.

"When RISE enters a market we dramatically decrease the time it takes to travel between markets while increasing aircraft utilization in the historically stagnant business aviation industry," said Kennedy. "I guess you could call it the 'RISE Effect'."
