Surf Air: 1,600 Members, Over 13,000 Flights

Los Angeles-based membership airline Surf Air says it now has more than 1,600 members, and has flown over 13,000 flights, two years after its debut--according to the company's sales emails. The numbers, if accurate, indicate that the company has been having some success in increasing its membership numbers, which in February had been pegged at 1,200 members. Surf Air offers an all-you-can-fly service between Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Santa Barbara, Monterey, Palm Springs, and other cities within California, which has proven popular with local technology executives and investors. The company's service allow members to skip the long security lines and crowded public terminals, and also mostly uses smaller airport locations.
