The fractional private jet operator has been going upscale for several years with its Red Label fleet of designer interiors and long-range private jets such as the Gulfstream G650.
Flexjet LLC, which has been a leader in bringing high style and design to fractional share private jets is now expanding its lifestyle offerings. Partners include European fashion clothiers and watchmakers, sporting outfitters, luxury hotels and resorts and award-winning vintners.
“At Flexjet, we have curated a collection of experiential-based partnerships which help our customers build a deeper connection with our company and our partner brands,” said Flexjet chief executive officer Michael Silvestro. “By partnering with like-minded brands, we are able to highlight the Flexjet characteristics we value. For example, one of our partners, ISAIA, pays painstaking attention to the detail, craftsmanship, and passion that they place in everything that they make – from a tie to a made-to-measure suit – and that mirrors one of Flexjet’s core fundamental principles – fanatical attention to detail.”
“Flexjet owners not only have access to the world’s finest private jet travel experience, but also now have insider access to a collection of unsurpassed experiences and opportunities that take into account their unique and varied passions,” said Christopher Bero, Flexjet Vice President of Global Marketing.

Flexjet Red Label
The company has been moving upscale for several years with its Red Label by Flexjet offering, which includes dedicated flight crews and the LXi Custom Cabin Collection. More than half of Flexjet customers now fly through Red Label by Flexjet, a fractional jet ownership experience designed to bridge the gap between fractional and whole aircraft ownership.
Flexjet has also been opening its own private terminals for customers, with Westchester County, Palm Beach, and Dallas.
Flexjet pricing and programs
Flexjet offers fractional ownership, leases and corporate solutions, plus jet cards. Its entry-level program is a 25 hours jet card on an Embraer Phenom 300 at $166,061, excluding Federal Excise Tax of 7.5%.
Recently, it also created a day-based program for its flagship G650 pricing quarter shares based on 75 days per year. The program is designed so owners can keep the aircraft with them during trips on non-travel days.
So far, it is only being offered to customers based in New York or London, however, since the launch Flexjet has said it would consider expanding to concept to other large-cabin aircraft in its fleet of more than 150 private jets.
