JetSuite is moving to an all Embraer fleet with the addition of Phenom 300s to its refurbished 100s.
JetSuite is a bit of a unique bird in the private aviation space. Its co-founder and CEO, Alex Wilcox, is not from business aviation but is a commercial aviation veteran. He was a co-founder of JetBlue (and JetBlue co-founder and aviation legend David Neeleman is a board member and investor in JetSuite). He also worked for Richard Branson at Virgin Atlantic Airways early in his career and later on was President of Kingfisher Airlines, an India-based airline started by the billionaire maker of beer by the same name.
The jet card and fractional share seller will provide private jet travel while the luxury hotelier will arrange the ground experiences.
Leading luxury hotelier Four Seasons and NetJets, the world’s largest private jet operator, which sells fractional ownership shares, leases and jet cards, have rolled out three luxury travel experiences spanning from the island of Lanai in Hawaii to a combination ski trip to Aspen and Vail, plus a European itinerary, including Paris, Cap-Ferrat, Milan and Florence.
While the NetJets name has been associated with top athletes who play in major competitions around-the-world, major entities such as the PGA and Art Basel, sometimes it’s all about your hometown. To that end, The National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets and NetJets announced yesterday the renewal of a multiyear partnership that is highlighted by naming rights to the Suite Level at Nationwide Arena. The newly branded elements of the NetJets Suite Level were unveiled to fans during Friday’s season-opening game as the Blue Jackets hosted the New York Islanders.
