Fractional private jet provider Flexjet has launched its Unlimited Access Program for the Gulfstream G650. Under the programme, Flexjet invites its owners to right-size their choice of aircraft for any given flight and choose either direct account credits or additional flight hours.
“The Unlimited Access Program is the perfect mix of the industry's most capable private jets and the G650, which enables travellers to circumnavigate the world with just a single stop,” says Flexjet executive VP of sales DJ Hanlon. “This is about as flexible as you can get, with owners buying access not just to the G650 but effectively to the entire Flexjet fleet.”
Available only to owners of the Gulfstream G650, this programme offers access to the G650 and all other aircraft in the Flexjet fleet. Owners who choose to join the Unlimited Access Program receive the flexibility to right-size their aircraft and maximise the efficiency of each trip, especially when flying domestically. Purchasing into this programme enables them to realise advantageous perks on shorter, domestic flights and fly friends, family members and associates on any jet in the Flexjet fleet.
Flexjet's sales VPs offer personalised consultations to assist prospects in determining the Flexjet programme best suited for their needs. Unlimited Access often is better for those who want to travel the world in the G650 but also have the ability to use any aircraft in the Flexjet fleet when the G650 may be more than is needed for the mission.
For example, owners in the US could fly their entire extended family to Europe for the summer on a G650 and then fly each child to college in the autumn on a Phenom 300 for a fraction of the cost of a G650 or fly business colleagues cross-country to meetings on a midsized Praetor 500.
This makes long-distance travel on the Gulfstream G650 as efficient as possible, helping owners realise the cost benefit of using the aircraft for longer, international flights. Owners enjoy rates that decrease the longer they fly on the G650, with trip-based incentives, including both round-trip and long-flight bonuses.
“When we added guaranteed access to the full Flexjet fleet, the word that kept coming up in conversation with our sales team was unlimited,” Hanlon continues. “And, in a soft launch with existing customers, we already have seen high demand for this programme. Reaction to this programme has been so successful that we have accelerated our fleet expansion plans to include additional deliveries of the G650 this year.”
The G650 is a leader in the ultra-long-range aircraft category, carrying up to 15 passengers with a range of 7,000 nm. It has a spacious configuration, the largest in its class, for meetings, dining and relaxation. The quietest cabin in its class, configurable lighting, low cabin altitude and air refreshed every two minutes enable relaxation and mitigate fatigue. Featuring a private entertainment area with a 42-inch TV and Ka-band wi-fi connectivity, Flexjet's Gulfstream G650 offers state-of-the-art materials and artisanal details such as custom inlaid wood veneer, fine textiles, crystal glassware and other elegant details.
This aircraft offers more than luxury and efficiency. It also offers comfort and peace of mind. The cabin pressure holds steady at a comfortable 3,290 ft, even at a cruising altitude of 51,000 ft. Throughout every flight in the Gulfstream G650, fresh air is constantly supplied throughout the entire cabin of the aircraft. While many commercial planes rely on fans to recirculate cabin air, every aircraft in the Flexjet fleet utilises compressed air continuously gathered from the sky throughout each flight. That air is cooled, conditioned and distributed throughout the interior, nonstop. At the exact same time, air is being released from the cabin, so that every breath one takes is crisp, clean and unrecycled, minimising jet lag and travel fatigue.
Finally, the Gulfstream G650 is part of the premium Red Label by Flexjet programme, which features a very young fleet, custom cabin interiors and flight crews assigned to a single, specific aircraft. While other providers' pilots are dedicated simply to an aircraft type, only Flexjet crews are legitimately dedicated to and are intimately familiar with their individual, specific aircraft. This unique approach elevates their confidence and awareness on board, which provides a safer, more personalised experience for owners.
