CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Flexjet LLC, a global leader in fractional private jet travel, today announced the launch of its Unlimited Access Program for the Gulfstream G650. Under the program, Flexjet – the only fractional provider offering the iconic G650 – 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 travelers to circumnavigate the world with just a single stop,” said Flexjet Executive Vice President of Sales, D.J. 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, the most capable ultra-long-range aircraft in the skies, this program 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 maximize the efficiency of each trip, especially when flying domestically. Purchasing into this program enables them to realize advantageous perks on shorter, domestic flights and fly friends, family members and associates on any jet in the Flexjet fleet.
Flexjet’s sales vice presidents offer personalized consultations to assist prospects in determining the Flexjet program 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 could fly their entire extended family to Europe for the summer on a G650, and then fly each child to college in the fall 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 realize 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. And, in a soft launch with existing customers, we already have seen high demand for this program,” said Hanlon. “Reaction to this program has been so successful that we have accelerated our fleet expansion plans to include additional deliveries of the G650 this year.”
The Gulfstream G650 offers a unique, best-in-class flight experience
The G650 is a leader in the ultra-long-range aircraft category, carrying up to 15 passengers with a range of 7,000 nautical miles. It has a spacious configuration, the largest in its class, for meetings, dining and relaxation. The quietest cabin in its class, configurable lighting, best-in-class 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 offers extraordinary comfort and peace of mind. The cabin pressure holds steady at a comfortable 3,290 feet, even at a cruising altitude of 51,000 feet. 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 utilizes 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, minimizing jet lag and travel fatigue.
Finally, the Gulfstream G650 is part of the premium Red Label by Flexjet program, which features the industry’s youngest 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 onboard, which provides a safer, more personalized experience for Owners.
