CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Flexjet LLC, a global leader in fractional private jet travel, will open a “pop-up” private terminal at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport exclusively for Flexjet Owners who are traveling to football’s biggest game. Operating from January 30 through February 4, the Flexjet Exclusive “pop up” terminal ensures Flexjet Owners receive private aviation’s most exciting travel experience during a period when more than 1,100-1,500 private aircraft are expected to descend on South Florida for the Big Game.
Fewer than six miles from Hard Rock Stadium, Flexjet’s presence at Miami-Opa Locka will match the levels of service that Owners experience at its Flexjet-exclusive private terminals around the country. Flexjet will provide a private hospitality lounge with team members on hand to help with Owners’ travel logistics and anything else that comes up to assist in the game-day celebrations. On arrival and departure, Owners can unwind with wine from Flexjet’s brand partner Trinitas Cellars, in addition to curated snacks to fuel up. And, Flexjet will have a boutique on site to equip guests with gear to represent their team.
Latest Line: Odds Favor a Robust Private Fly-in for 2020’s Game in Miami
South Florida, with its entertainment, leisure and lifestyle amenities, annually is one of Flexjet’s top five travel destinations. With an exciting game on tap and all of the associated festivities, this is set to be the game most attended by Flexjet Owners in recent history.
“When the game is in a warm-weather locale, more people fly in and they tend to stay longer so they can extend their trip into a real winter getaway,” said Flexjet Chief Operating Officer Megan Wolf. “2019 saw double-digit increases in travel over holiday weekends, and we expect private jet travel this year to continue that trend, especially since Owners can book with as little as 10 hours’ notice, making last-minute travel decisions easy.”
Flexjet’s premium offering, Red Label by Flexjet, features the industry’s youngest fleet of jets, flight crews dedicated to a single, specific aircraft and custom cabin interiors – making the fractional provider an especially attractive option for Flexjet Owners, their family, friends and colleagues. Given that this year’s game in Miami is beyond driving distance for hometown fans of the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, nonstop range is very important. In addition, comfortable seating capacity is critical, since so many fans travel together, often comprising multiple generations. The most popular Flexjet aircraft for travel to the game will be those with transcontinental range and generous interiors including the Embraer Praetor 500, Bombardier Challenger 350 and the Gulfstream G450 and G650.
In addition to the pop-up Flexjet-Exclusive Private Terminal, many Flexjet Owners traveling to the big game will benefit from a special partnership with Miami’s Hotel Faena, which reached capacity prior to the game.
Flexjet first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995. 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, is the first and only company to be honored with 20 FAA Diamond Awards for Excellence, upholds an ARG/US Platinum Safety Rating and is IS-BAO compliant at Level 2. Flexjet’s fractional program fields an exclusive array of business aircraft—some of the youngest in the fractional jet industry, with an average age of approximately six years. In 2015, Flexjet introduced Red Label by Flexjet, which features the youngest fleet in the industry, flight crews dedicated to a single aircraft and the LXi Cabin Collection of interiors. To date there are more than 40 different interior designs across its fleet, which includes the Challenger 350, the Embraer Legacy 450 and Praetor 500, Global Express, the Gulfstream G450, G500, G650 and G700, and the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jets. In addition, the overall jet collection includes the Embraer Phenom 300 and Bombardier Challenger 300. Flexjet is a member of the Directional Aviation family of companies.
