New Flexjet Unit Seeks To Be Extension of Flight Departments

Fractional provider Flexjet has announced a new division—Corporate Solutions by Flexjet—that will partner with corporate flight departments to enhance their capabilities and efficiencies. The division will provide consulting services and supplemental lift options to corporate flight departments that maintain and operate their own fleet of aircraft.

“We see Corporate Solutions by Flexjet as a seamless extension of corporate flight departments, providing independent advice and whatever support flight directors, chief pilots, and other managers need to do their jobs,” said Flexjet executive v-p of of sales Matt Doyle. “We expect flight departments will benefit not only from our infrastructure but also from Flexjet’s more than two decades of experience in developing tailored solutions to meet the travel needs of organizations of all sizes.”

Each member of the Corporate Solutions team is an ATP-rated pilot who can work with senior flight department personnel. The division can offer access to the right size of aircraft for the mission via Flexjet’s light to ultra-long-range jet fleet; strategic fleet optimization to reduce repositioning costs; back-up solutions; tailored invoicing; and expertise and experience with complex international missions.

“We created this program in direct response to a trend among corporate flight departments seeking to deploy capital more thoughtfully, while also expanding their capabilities,” said Flexjet CEO Michael Silvestro. “Corporate flight departments…often face challenges when the mission calls for a larger or smaller aircraft, multiple aircraft, or a ready standby. Corporate Solutions by Flexjet works with flight department managers on a consultative basis, identifying these challenges and finding the most effective solution for their overall operation.”
