This new offering from Flexjet delivers special incentive jet card rates when traveling across the USA aboard Challenger 300 aircraft.
These special incentive rates are available for customers who fly to and from designated zones on the East and West coasts. The savings represent a discount of approximately 25 percent off the standard jet card rates and take advantage of long-haul operational efficiencies.
"We are always looking for new and exciting ways to offer enhanced value and customizable solutions," said Deanna White, President, Flexjet. "The Coastal Connect program is able to save travelers thousands of dollars. It is a win-win for both card holders and the Flexjet 25 Jet Card program."
Coastal Connect customers can use more than 1,500 airports in 22 states. West Coast locations include Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. On the East Coast it's Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont and Virginia.
With no blackout dates, travelers in the program can take off with as little as 24 hours' notice. They will also be provided with a dedicated Customer Account Manager who will handle every detail of the trip – from booking flights and on-site transportation to checking weather conditions on the day of the trip – so they can travel with ease.
The super-midsize, 8 passenger, Challenger 300 has 106 cubic feet of baggage space and a normal cruising speed of 528 mph. (Read this article to get a feel for baggage space in private jets.)
Starting at just $100,000, the Coastal Connect program gives travelers access to as many flight hours as needed. The cost of each flight is simply deducted from the debit card balance which can be replenished via an automatic or manual recharge option.
This new Flexjet program is very similar to the NetJets X-Country card that was announced last year.
(Note, the Flexjet 25 Jet Card Program is operated by U.S. air carrier Jet Solutions)
