Flexjet will nearly double its Gulfstream G650 fleet, launching Unlimited Access and expanding World Access
Fractional share operator Flexjet is making several major moves with its Gulfstream G650 offering. It’s adding new markets for its existing World Access option. It’s also launching a new Unlimited Access option nationally. Added perks in both programs include complimentary carbon offsets and helicopter transfers in New York and London via sister OneSky Flight operator Halo.

What a difference a year and a couple of months make. Fitch Ratings has upgraded OneSky Flight’s Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to ‘B’ from ‘B-. Fitch also upgraded the company’s senior secured term loan to ‘BB-‘/’RR2’ from ‘B’/’RR3’. The Rating Outlook is Stable. OneSky is a unit of Directional Aviation. Its private aviation brands include Flexjet, Sentient Jet, FXAIR, PrivateFly, and Halo. In April 2020, Fitch had downgraded OneFlight citing, “the effects of a global drop in demand related to the coronavirus pandemic.”
