CHICAGO – Big Game Air (BGA), a first-of-its-kind leading provider of luxury game day travel experiences for sports fans, announced today the simultaneous launch of two subsidiary companies, Triumph Jets and Next Level Tix.
The two new subsidiary companies will focus on private jet charter and event ticketing. Triumph Jets will target business and leisure travel for corporations and high net-worth individuals (HNWI) while Next Level Tix is a ticket marketplace focusing on premium tickets and access to concerts, theater and sporting events. Additionally, Next Level Tix will also sell travel accommodations for both ground and air.
“It was a natural progression for us to expand our efforts into private aviation and the ticketing marketplace,” Arturo Gomez, CEO and co-founder of the three companies said. “When we launched Big Game Air, we immediately recognized the need to create a charter company that would service the business and travel needs of corporate and high net worth individuals. We’ve created a one-stop- shopping experience for sports and business travelers where, not only will we get you to your event and back, but we’ll also provide high-end hospitality and deliver the best event seats.”
“We realized that our business model related to Big Game Air was very attractive to sports and experience enthusiasts but that in order to market and attract other areas of business we would need to create another brand that aligned with the needs of corporate and high net worth individuals.”
Vince Schideman and Bernie Berns, two long-tenured and well-respected aviation brokers from Chicago, join Gomez and Todd Rubin on the Triumph Jets executive team and collectively bring over 38 years of aviation experience and 40 years of hospitality experience. The solution-based providers are dedicated to delivering the best and safest product for clients.
Finding the right aircraft for client’s needs is the foundation of Triumph Jets. All aircraft operators and their teams are vetted to ensure reliability, consistency and safety. The hospitality team will ensure any needs are handled with attention and detail and the concierge services will handle a vast array of requests to assist and manage travel experiences from start to finish.
Next Level Tix (NLT), a ticketing marketplace, focuses on premium access and tickets and offers a unique approach to event experience purchases at the best market price. In addition to premium access, NLT boasts one-of-a-kind concierge-level and optional add-on services uncommon in the industry. Next Level Tix offers air and ground transportation, ground logistics and, with years of developing strong national relationships in the hospitality industry, NLT also has the ability to secure hotel, restaurant and nightlife reservations for discerning clients.
Big Game Air partnered with Anheuser-Busch to offer college football fans the opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime game day experience while Next Level Tix will provide premium tickets to one of those sweepstakes winners, along with three of their friends, and will provide a custom travel package on a private jet provided by Big Game Air, to one of the most anticipated college rivalry games of the year.
“I believe what sets us apart from other ticket outlets is the ability to provide the entire event experience,” Gomez said. “Not only can we deliver the best seats, we can also get you to the event and back. We’re also thrilled to partner with Anheuser-Busch on the flyaway sweepstakes and look forward to the start of what we hope will be a long-lasting relationship.”
