“Flexjet has taken the time to lay the groundwork to properly serve those entering the shared aircraft ownership market in Europe,” said Eugène. “Now that we have the infrastructure in place, we are growing our fleet with the addition of our new Praetor 600 aircraft. The Praetor 600 will form part of our Red Label by Flexjet offering, bringing to European-based travelers a unique combination of innovative technology, luxury and premium service. Our objective is to give Owners the ability to travel not just in North America but throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East without leaving the safety and security of the Flexjet family.”
Currently, only 110 shared-ownership aircraft are providing more than 800,000 flight hours per year in Europe. In contrast, there are nearly 700 private aircraft supporting 1.2 million flight hours annually in the U.S. With its growing presence in Europe, Flexjet intends to meet the needs of a European market, underserved by existing flight providers, offering the personalized levels of service, consistency and attention to detail for which Flexjet is known.
The Praetor 600 will be part of the premium Red Label by Flexjet programme. The only offering of its kind, Red Label by Flexjet features flight crews assigned to a single, specific aircraft, custom cabin interiors and the youngest fleet in the industry as well as innovations established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Having the youngest fleet in the industry is just one of the ways that Flexjet is meeting the industrywide commitment to achieving its sustainability goals by 2050. To meet that target, Flexjet Ltd. has implemented a standard sustainability offering that goes far beyond carbon-neutral. All Owners’ flights will be fully emissions-neutral, compensating for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and also other non-carbon dioxide warming pollutants in aviation, such as water vapor, aerosol sulphate and nitrous oxides. This comprehensive programme requires offsetting an additional 300 percent on top of standard CO2 emissions, a truly innovative first in the sector.
