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.
Through the end of April, the former Skyjet Explorer pay-as-you-go
fixed rate jet card is being discounted to $5,000
Directional Aviation’s OneSky, which owns Flexjet and Sentient Jet, said it has merged its Skyjet brand into PrivateFly, which it had acquired last September. Skyjet was acquired by Directional in 2014 as part of Bombardier’s divestiture of its fractional share arm Flexjet. The Skyjet team is being merged into PrivateFly under Adam Twidell, the co-founder and CEO of PrivateFly.
