  • Jet Travel Solutions

    Introduced back in 1995, Flexjet is the fractional ownership, jet cards and charter brokerage services division of Bombardier and operates the single largest closed fleet of Bombardier business aircraft anywhere in the world. Flexjet has developed many industry-first programs and continues to find innovative ways to provide exceptional value to their customers and raise the standards for the rest of the industry.

    Originally known as Skyjet, the charter brokerage service was founded in 1997 to provide private jet charter through the use of a network of expertly qualified operators and aircraft. Skyjet was acquired by Bombardier in 2000 to become Bombardier and was able to take advantage of synergies within the Bombardier family of companies. Bombardier Skyjet was integrated with Flexjet in 2010 in order to offer a complete aviation solution ranging from on-demand charter brokerage services to whole aircraft ownership and management.

    Flexjet‘s experience results in exceptional operational efficiencies, industry-leading program offerings, a superior managed fleet of aircraft, greater flexibility and focus on safety. It is an authentic aviation heritage and complete portfolio of aviation solutions that clearly set Flexjet apart from any other private aviation companies.
