Flexjet LLC, a leading provider of fractional jet ownership, has reported a 17% growth in fractional and lease sales over the same period in 2017, the company said.
New business grew even more strongly, expanding by 76 percent year over year; additionally, more than half (57%) of new Flexjet Owners came through referrals, indicating strong satisfaction among existing Owners.
More than four in 10 (42%) of all Flexjet Owners now fly under Red Label by Flexjet, which includes features available nowhere else in fractional private jet travel including access to the industry´s most modern fleet of aircraft, artisan aircraft interiors in the LXi Cabin Collection and crews assigned to a single aircraft.
The increased demand for long-range international missions is reflected in a more than 100 percent increase in Gulfstream G450 sales during the first half of 2018. All available hours in the new Gulfstream G650s delivered late in 2017 were sold by year-end.
In order to meet demand, the G650 fleet will be increased to four by the end of 2018.
Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership and leasing. Flexjet´s fractional aircraft program is the first in the world to be recognized as achieving the Air Charter Safety Foundation´s Industry Audit Standard and is the first and only company to be honored with 19 FAA Diamond Awards for Excellence.
