CINCINNATI, Aug. 9, 2006 - Delta AirElite Business Jets has renewed its partnership with Bombardier Flexjet* and Jet Solutions, LLC and will now be offering the Flexjet 25 jet card.
Delta AirElite’s Flexjet Membership program, which was introduced in October 2003, has been popular with members desiring a specific aircraft for their travel needs by offering access to a dedicated fleet of Bombardier Flexjet program aircraft. Now with the Flexjet 25 jet card, members will have even greater choice and flexibility.
The Flexjet 25 jet card lets members choose blocks of 25, 30 or 35 occupied flight hours in their choice of the Learjet 45*, Learjet 60* or Challenger 604* aircraft. Members then select the number of days per year they plan to fly—275, 325, 355, or 365. Flexjet 25 program flights are operated under Part 135 by Jet Solutions, LLC.
“The Flexjet 25 jet card is the perfect solution for those seeking an aircraft type-specific membership program to meet their individual needs,” said Michael B. Green, president and chief executive officer of Delta AirElite. “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Bombardier Flexjet, and proud that we are able to offer our customers such a flexible solution.”
The new Flexjet 25 jet card gives members access to the Flexjet 25 program fleet without a long-term commitment or capital investment. The program features the Flexjet 25 Program Aircraft Guarantee that assures the member will never fly more than one trip or five percent of the total hours purchased on a non-Flexjet 25 program aircraft. Other benefits include an average Flexjet 25 program fleet age of 3.5 years, waived positioning fees to the Flexjet Secondary Service area which include the Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and the ability to use the purchased hours for up to 24 months. A Delta AirElite exclusive benefit offers Flexjet 25 members instant Platinum Medallion® status in the Delta SkyMiles® program, providing prestigious benefits when traveling with Delta Air Lines.
With the Flexjet 25 jet card and the popular Fleet Membership program, Delta AirElite offers customers the industry’s most comprehensive selection of private jet membership options. From the innovative ten hour Perfect 10™ jet card, with its low cost of entry, to unmatched flexibility in selecting the type of aircraft that’s right for you, Delta AirElite can tailor a program to meet the needs of anyone seeking access to a private jet.
