Flexjet is targeting NetJets customers to switch

The two largest private jet operators in the world are headquartered 21 minutes from each other as the private jet flies. Judging by Flexjet’s current ad campaign, the gloves are off…

It’s 114 nautical miles as the private jet flies from John Glenn Columbus International Airport in central Ohio north to Cuyahoga County Airport in Cleveland. The former is home to Warren Buffett-owned NetJets, the largest operator of private jets in the world, and the undisputed leader in fractional ownership. The latter is the home turf of Golden Domer, Kenn Ricci, whose wide smile and neighborly demeanor belie that in his own right he has made a mark in aviation, acknowledged in 2017 with the Lifetime Aviation Entrepreneur Award at the 14th Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards.

NetJets adds Phenom 300, Citation Sovereign jet cards

Phenom 300 Citation Sovereign

The new NetJets jet cards give it a true light jet and another coast-to-coast option

Private Jet Comparisons has exclusively confirmed NetJets has added the Embraer Phenom 300 light jet (as we reported it would last year) and Cessna Citation Sovereign super-midsize jet to its jet card line-up, although at just over 30,000 pounds maximum takeoff weight it is classifying it as a midsize aircraft.

Both will be sold as Elite Card programs, meaning 24-hour lead-time for reservations with the hourly price including fuel, 7.5% Federal Excise Tax, and deicing. Peak day lead-time is 120 hours with a 25% surcharge.
