Bombardier has launched a global executive charter program offering both block occupied-hour terms and ad hoc rates throughout the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region. Skyjet International was unveiled in London on January 26 and incorporates the manufacturer’s existing Skyjet packages in the U.S. and Europe, the Flexjet Europe Jet Membership block charter program and the Flexjet Asia ad hoc charter operation. It also adds a new Middle East service to create a worldwide fleet of some 900 Bombardier aircraft. Customers will be able to pay for flights on occupied-hours or ad hoc terms, based on which is most cost-effective for a given mission.
