The Metafly Club has acquired a Falcon 2000 and plans to expand to twelve aircraft during 2023.
The 10 seat Falcon 2000 VIP business jet offers unmatched performance capabilities, modern designed interiors, comfortable seats and superior amenities on board.

The Metafly Club has acquired its first aircraft, a 10 seat Dassault Falcon 2000 that will serve charter clients on all its Club routes. In partnership with M2Jets it is launching a luxury charter jet membership programme, merging private aviation and luxury hospitality perks on routes and destinations around the globe. Further fleet expansion up to 12 aircraft is planned for 2023.

CEO Hassan Chowdhury says: “With the acquisition of the Falcon 2000 heavy jet for The Metafly Club clients, and the goal to expand to 12 aircraft in 2023, we are proving ourselves to be leaders in luxury private aviation, offering our customers the ultimate private jet and hospitality experience.”

In addition to the Falcon 2000, the Club plans to offer members a fleet of Hawker 800, Falcon 50, Falcon 2000, Falcon 900, Falcon 7X, Challenger 604, Gulfstream IVSP and Gulfstream V aircraft. VIP clients will have access to multiple international routes, as well as memberships perks at the hottest clubs, restaurants and private accommodations such as Bouge Villas, Sushi By Bou and Nebula.

In February 2023, The Metafly Club will launch its NFT membership programme, where each member will receive a digital NFT and access to exclusive deals and raffles for private flights on national and international routes. Members will enjoy discounted pricing on jet charters and have premium access to empty leg flights at competitive rates, as well as crowdfund among each other to share private jet rides. The first NFTs will launch through OpenSea.
