John Bevan joins jet broker PrivateFly

Former Lastminute.com managing director John Bevan has been appointed a non-executive director of private jet broker PrivateFly.

Bevan left Lastminute.com in October last year and took up the role of project director for the launch of traveldealsdirect, part of the Travel Channel, in June.

PrivateFly plans to bring an online strategy to what has traditionally been an offline market. The broker already offers a white-label solution for travel partners, with technology that enables clients to submit a flight request and compare prices from more than 2,600 suppliers.

Bevan is also a non-executive director of language services provider CallUma.
