* Split-payment option facilitates Flexjet 25 jet card ownership
* Combination jet card provides customized selection of any two aircraft from the Flexjet 25 full fleet of aircraft

The Flexjet 25* Jet Card program, operated by Jet Solutions LLC under FAR Part 135, has introduced two new features giving prospective jet card owners versatile payment and aircraft selection options. Both are available on the full Flexjet 25 fleet of legendary Bombardier business aircraft—including the Learjet 40, Learjet 45, Learjet 60, Challenger 300 and Challenger 604.

Flexjet 25 split-payment option. The Flexjet 25 split-payment option provides prospective Flexjet 25 Jet Card owners the benefit of dividing the purchase price of a 25-, 30- or 35-hour jet card into two equal payments. The first half of the payment is made at the time of purchase. The second half of the payment is due after six months or upon scheduling more than half of the purchased flight hours.

For example, a jet card owner who purchases 25 hours on a Learjet 40 aircraft and chooses the split payment option would have an initial payment of $54,000 for six months or up to 12.5 hours of scheduled flight time and would pay the remaining $54,000 after six months or upon scheduling the remaining 12.5 hours of flight time.

Flexjet 25 combination jet card. Flexjet 25 Jet Card owners now have the benefit of purchasing 50 percent of their total hours in one aircraft type and 50 percent of the remaining hours in another aircraft type, chosen from the entire Flexjet 25 fleet, with no additional fees. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, jet card owners experience ultimate flexibility by choosing the optimal combination of aircraft to meet their unique and evolving needs.

A prospective jet card owner with both short and long-range missions may, for example, choose to purchase a 25-hour jet card and select 12.5 hours in a Learjet 40 aircraft and 12.5 hours in a Challenger 300 aircraft.

“The Flexjet 25 Jet Card program provides the flexibility and customization that businesses and individuals are looking for, especially given the current economic climate,” said Sylvain Levesque, Vice President, Bombardier Flexjet. “This program offers not one but two pragmatic options to make jet card ownership even more attractive and versatile.

“The split-payment option is aimed at first-time jet card owners who might find two payment installments less daunting than one,” Levesque continued. “The combination card significantly expands the options available to cardholders, allowing them to choose a variety of aircraft from the youngest fleet offered by any jet card program.”

First introduced in 2006, the Flexjet 25 Jet Card program offers fliers an easy way to sample private aviation without assuming ownership of a plane, while providing an optimal combination of choice, flexibility and benefits among jet cards. Unlike traditional jet card programs, the Flexjet 25 Jet Card is available in 25-, 30- or 35-hour increments. Jet card owners can choose from four different price levels for each aircraft based on a preset number of travel days per year – ranging from an unrestricted 365-day jet card to a 355-day, 325-day or 275-day jet card. Additional days are also available for purchase as needed to further meet the card owner’s needs. Flexjet 25 also offers a satisfaction guarantee, promising card owners a refund of the remaining portion of their pre-paid balance if they are not completely satisfied at any time.
