Fractional share and jet card provider Flexjet will increase pilot ranks by 25% this year
Directional Aviation’s Flexjet LLC, a leading provider of fractional jet ownership, leases and jet cards, announced today “substantial salary increases” for Red Label pilots, making them, according to the company, the highest paid in the industry. Red Label pilots’ total compensation is greater than that of competitors by 25% or more, Flexjet said in a press release received by Private Jet Card Comparisons. Red Label by Flexjet is the carrier’s premium offering.
Last week Flexjet announced it was launching a new program adding to its offering of jet cards, fractional ownership and leases
Corporate Solutions by Flexjet is the newest program from the Cleveland-based operator, in this case offering travelers access to the company’s fleet of private aircraft flown by crews dedicated to a single aircraft, part of its Red Label brand. The goal, according to the announcement, is to partner with corporate flight departments to enhance capabilities and efficiencies while maintaining the high standards expected by their executives. The new division will focus its expertise on corporate flight departments that maintain and operate their own fleet of aircraft. Flexjet says it already serves several Fortune 1000 companies with a combination of supplemental lift and consultation to achieve more effective utilization of their existing fleets.
With new business jumping 50% so far in 2017 on top of 20% growth in 2016, Flexjet LLC says it is hiring pilots for the first time since 2015.
In addition to its normal Flexjet hospitality lounge at Augusta Regional Airport during The Masters golf tournament April 6-9, the fractional share and private jet card seller will be showcasing one of its midsize Embraer Legacy 450 private jets with its exclusive Red Label cabin design.
