Flexjet today announced that its pilots and flight crews
will no longer rely on commercial airlines to travel to or from flight
assignments but instead on Flexjet’s private fleet.
The company said the move is meant to protect the health and
safety of Flexjet customers and flight crews during the ongoing COVID-19 Coronavirus
The midsize private jet is the first in Flexjet’s $1.4 billion order made in October
Flexjet said it has taken delivery of its first Embraer Praetor 500. It is part of a $1.4 billion order announced in October with Embraer Executive Jets. The order includes the Praetor 500 and 600 aircraft and Phenom 300 light jets.
Flexjet is the fleet launch customer for the Praetor 500, expanding its fleet of midsized aircraft. It is also the North American launch customer for the Gulfstream G700.
The long-running hurricane hit close to the heart as Flexjet helped owners evacuate their extended family from the Bahamas, and now helps with the recovery effort
Executing an operations plan before, during and after a hurricane is not out of the ordinary for most major fleet operators, and Flexjet, the second-largest seller of fractional shares is no exception. However, this time was a bit different, its chief operating officer Megan Wolf tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.
One of the nice things about having access to a private jet
is being able to get to places that take more time if you are flying
commercially, and so it was that a number Flexjet’s owners had homes in areas
of the Bahamas that were hardest hit by Hurricane Dorian.
