Flexjet offers private jet getaway at Sonoma County Wine Auction

The event which benefits a range of charities in the California county, brings together wine superstars, celebrity chefs and honored guests.

Over $30 million has been raised since the event’s inception

Fractional share, lease and jet card operator Flexjet will be part of the all-star line-up during The Sonoma County Vintners Foundation

Last week honorary co-chairs Gina Gallo and Christopher Jackson unveiled the full list of one-of-a-kind auction lots available at the 2019 Sonoma County Wine Auction, presented by Visa Signature. The auction lots are an exclusive way to procure sought-after wines, private experiences, dinners with America’s top chefs, and excursions not typically available to the public. The event takes place Sept. 19-21, 2019.

For Flexjet, Hurricane Dorian continues

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.

Flexjet is targeting NetJets customers to switch

The two largest private jet operators in the world are headquartered 21 minutes from each other as the private jet flies. Judging by Flexjet’s current ad campaign, the gloves are off…

It’s 114 nautical miles as the private jet flies from John Glenn Columbus International Airport in central Ohio north to Cuyahoga County Airport in Cleveland. The former is home to Warren Buffett-owned NetJets, the largest operator of private jets in the world, and the undisputed leader in fractional ownership. The latter is the home turf of Golden Domer, Kenn Ricci, whose wide smile and neighborly demeanor belie that in his own right he has made a mark in aviation, acknowledged in 2017 with the Lifetime Aviation Entrepreneur Award at the 14th Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards.

We wanted to poke the bear
