NetJets has holed out an exclusive partnership with The R&A as its Official Private Jet Provider for The Open or British Open if you don’t follow golf.

The multiyear agreement allows NetJets to extend invitations to its customers.

The deal comes ahead of this year’s event, which will be held at Royal Troon, Scotland, from 14 to 21 July.

“We are committed to maintaining the highest standard in travel for the world’s top performing golfers, and the partnership between NetJets and The R&A allows us to facilitate this further,” says NetJets’ President Patrick Gallagher.

He adds, “Moreover, this partnership will allow NetJets to strengthen the offering for our owners by offering access to some of the most exclusive events worldwide, one of the many benefits our owners will get from flying with NetJets. A brand rich in history such as The R&A aligns with the impeccable reputation NetJets has, cementing that this partnership is the perfect fit.”

Neil Armit, Chief Commercial Officer at The R&A, notes, “NetJets has a renowned reputation worldwide for its leadership in aviation, and its long-standing support for golf aligns with our own vision of ensuring that the sport continues to thrive now and in the future. We look forward to working with NetJets as we begin a new partnership that will deliver value to players competing in The Open.”

According to the world’s largest private jet flight provider, it flies more than 50 professional golfers, including eight of the last 10 Open champions.

What is the R&A?

The R&A group of companies was formed in 2004 to take on The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews’ responsibilities for governing the rules of golf.

It is also responsible for staging The Open and developing the sport.

The World Golf Museum in St Andrews is part of The R&A group.
