Flexjet is rolling out the red carpet for its customers via a series of events available during at Monterey Car Week, the ultimate mecca for automobile enthusiasts, for the 17th consecutive year.

From dinner invitations to events previously closed to the public to branded entertainment and exclusive driving experiences, Flexjet, its partner brands, and friends will offer jet card customers and fractional shareowners what it describes as “a Monterey Car Week like none they have ever seen before.”

Monterrey Car Week

Monterey Car Week, held annually in August at locations up and down Monterey County’s beautiful Pacific coastline, features a series of automotive events including exhibitions, auctions, and rallies that culminate at the famed Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The company says the response from customers was so strong that within days, tickets to its exclusive experiences were fully reserved.

“What we have in store this weekend for our owners is sure to result in a genuinely remarkable experience we believe can be found only as a member of the Flexjet Family,” said Megan Wolf, Flexjet chief operating officer. “We look forward each year to finding new opportunities to fuel their passions and offer a chance to spend time in the relaxed environment the California coast provides.”

Flexjet event highlights:

The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, is a car show limited to 200 vehicles at the Quail Lodge and Golf Club. Flexjet’s tent on the lawn at The Quail will include breakfast and a private Italian-themed café. In addition, Flexjet brand partner ISAIA, the renowned Italian men’s fashion brand, designed a bocce court for Flexjet customers to enjoy at the Flexjet hospitality tent.

The Bentley Beach Dinner, an oceanfront gathering hosted by Bentley Motors tonight. Limited in the past to top Bentley customers and Bentley executives, invitations to this event have been extended outside that group for the first time to Flexjet owners and customers.

Casa Ferrari, a daylong event taking place on Saturday, August 17, at The Lodge at Pebble Beach includes test-driving experiences with the world’s most celebrated marque.  In addition to viewing Ferrari cars, Flexjet Owners will enjoy a cocktail party late that afternoon followed by a film screening under the stars.

At the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, on Sunday, August 18, Flexjet’s hospitality patio sits on the 18th hole, just steps away from the judges’ table. Famed worldwide, the Concours d’Elegance is known for displaying the most elegant cars ever built, many of them shown only at Pebble Beach.

Flexjet versus NetJets

In its battle with market leader NetJets, Flexjet has been increasingly going upmarket and long-range over the past couple years with the launch of its Red Label by Flexjet fleet, including designer interiors, and dedicated flight crews, VIP terminals exclusively for its customers in major markets, and innovative new programs such as its days based fractional ownership program on its fleet of Gulfstream G650s.

It has also recently adding lifestyle partners, including a partnership with Virtuoso travel agency Skylark that includes a flexible check-in, check-out program in selected markets. Flexjet customers can check-in and check-out at their preferred times on arrival and departure days without additional costs.

Earlier this month, Flexjet confirmed it is hiring pilots in Europe as it ramps up to launch local market private jet access programs there.
