Flexjet reports 96 per cent rise in fractional and jet card sales
Fractional jet and jet card operator Flexjet has reported a significant rise in new business during the first half of 2013.
Flexjet, the world’s second largest fractional jet ownership services provider, reported 96 per cent growth of new fractional and jet card sales when comparing January to June 2013 to that of the same period in 2012. Within the first six months of this year, sales of new fractional shares increased 112 per cent, while new jet card sales grew 68 per cent.
Flexjet president Deanna White said: “The skies continue to brighten for Flexjet, which is seeing an upward trend in both new fractional and jet card sales, as a result of our team’s ability to customise product offerings, complemented by an increase in awareness from marketing efforts. With our sights now set on the second half of 2013 and beyond, our brand promise of offering the most exceptional travel experiences in the industry will continue to set Flexjet apart as the definitive private aviation provider of choice.”
This year, Flexjet celebrates its 18th anniversary and its place as Bombardier’s largest customer, taking delivery of more than 225 Bombardier business aircraft jets since its inception. Flexjet is the launch customer for the all-new Learjet 85 aircraft – the first business jet with both fuselage and wings built largely of carbon composite materials – and the next-generation Learjet 75 aircraft.
The company also recently placed an order for two Challenger 350 super-midsize jet.
