Fractional operator Flexjet officially announced three new private terminals in addition to its five current locations, with plans to add more
Flexjet customers will soon have access to more private VIP lounges with more private terminals planned for the future.
The Cleveland-based operator said it would add its own private-use lounges in Bozeman (BZN), Montana, Miami, Florida, and Scottsdale (SDL), Arizona.
The Miami location will be at Opa Locka Executive Airport (OPF).
Officials didn’t provide a timetable for the openings.
Flexjet already has its own private lounges at Naples Airport in Florida (APF), New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport (TEB), Westchester County Airport in White Plains, New York (HPN), Dallas Love Field in Dallas, Texas (DAL), and Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles, California (VNY).
It had previously said it planned to use funds from its upcoming IPO to support infrastructure expansion, including the dedicated terminals.
The first international private lounge is planned for London’s Farnborough Airport, according to its investor deck.
“More people than ever are electing to travel by private aircraft. Expanding our private terminals in top locations ensures a more intimate experience for our owners,” says Flexjet Chief Experience Officer Megan Wolf.
She adds, “This increase in traffic means the large general aviation Fixed Based Operators in popular departure and arrival points are more hectic than in the past. Flexjet’s (customer-only) lounges offer comfort and amenities to ease the transition from the jet to your final destination.”
Lounges include fully stocked bar and café stations, high-speed WiFi access, private conference rooms, and dedicated concierges.
While some services vary (for example, Naples offers long-term parking), staff will arrange to wash, detail cars, and assist with “whatever owners want.”
Its Naples location saw over 3,000 movements in 2022, with up to 40 on busy says.
Wolf tells Private Jet Card Comparisons the locations also support enhancements in the works for its Red Label service currently being rolled out across its fleet of large cabin and ultra-long-haul private jets.
The terminals will not be used by sister companies Sentient Jet, FXAir, and PrivateFly. However, they will be available for Flexjet Private Helicopter customers.
Separately, its rotor division, launched last year focusing on the New York market, launched share sales in South Florida in December and earlier this month in London.
