Long-range arrivals swell Bookajet managed fleet
Bookajet, the jet management and charter business, has added a Global Express XRS, a Citation Excel, a Gulfstream IV and a Citation Sovereign to its managed fleet in recent weeks.

Bookajet, the jet management and charter business, has added a Global Express XRS, a Citation Excel, a Gulfstream IV and a Citation Sovereign to its managed fleet in recent weeks. The XRS and Excel will be both on the AOC and on the UK register.

Bookajet is based at Farnborough, but currently has operations in Italy, Russia, Netherlands and France as well.

One option which the company offers its charter customers is a membership card, dubbed the JetBlack card. This offers fixed prices on any aircraft in the fleet, a dedicated account manager, 24-hour support and guaranteed availability, and a 15 per cent discount on round trips.

“For example, a typical two-hour light jet flight from London to Nice would normally cost more than €11,000, but JetBlack card holders would pay just €10,000,” the company says. “Likewise, taking the same trip but with a medium jet (seven or eight passengers), JetBlack card holders would typically save €1,500 off the standard price. And because you only pay for the hours you are actually flying, you'll spend less, however you use your time.”
