FLY FURTHER WITH FLEXJET
February 22, 2023
Flexjet aircraft Owners have a vast array of point-to-point flight destinations at their disposal, and more and more are choosing to fly further, with our impressive European fleet well-placed to operate longer flights, in exceptional comfort and style.
Uniquely amongst super-midsize jets, the impressive Praetor 600 can fly nonstop for up to eight hours, taking it across the Atlantic or between Northern Europe and the Middle East. The ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650 flies further still – up to 14 hours, which makes it capable of flights such as London to Buenos Aires, or Zurich to Los Angeles.
Either way, the hours slip by seamlessly, with our carefully appointed cabins and a Flexjet Cabin Server on every flight.
Our European fleet flew to or from a total of 333 airports worldwide last year, and while our most-flown destinations in volume terms were London, Paris, Geneva, Nice and Dublin, a growing proportion were outside Europe.
Here we highlight some of the destinations that are tempting our Owners further afield.
Vibrant Tel Aviv
Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean and a cultural bridge between The Middle East, Asia and Europe, Tel Aviv has a distinctive appeal as both a business destination and a luxury beach escape. Nightlife, entrepreneurship, wellness and history are blended here, in a unique and vibrant way.
The White City district is home to some of the city’s top residences, restaurants, and places to stay. This includes the exquisite five-star Norman Hotel, formed from two meticulously restored buildings and with a rooftop infinity pool, and where Flexjet aircraft Owners can enjoy exclusive partner benefits.
Ben Gurion Airport (LLBG) is located 20km to the southeast of the city, with its VIP Fattal Terminal provides dedicated amenities for private aviation passengers. It is also the primary airport for visitors to Jerusalem, 45km further away to the south.
The glitter of Los Angeles
Combining the glamour of Hollywood with big business, world-class restaurants and epic beach and mountain landscapes, Los Angeles has a larger-than-life culture that celebrates extravagance in every respect.
For designer shopping, LA is arguably one of the best places in the world, with the iconic Rodeo Drive home to many of the world’s most elite brands, along with luxury retail areas in other parts of the city such as Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard. There’s also a dazzling choice of fine dining options, with no less than 20 Michelin-starred restaurants across the city, offering cuisine from all corners of the globe.
When it comes to hotels, the Waldorf Astoria Beverley Hills offers the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle, in the heart of Beverly Hills. Meticulous Art Deco styling and custom crystal chandeliers set the tone, with the Golden Age glamour extending throughout the huge rooms and suites. There’s an extensive spa and the dazzling rooftop pool and bar offers panoramic views of the city.
The Los Angeles airport of choice for Flexjet aircraft Owners is Van Nuys (KVNY), around 30km from downtown. While it is one of the world’s busiest private aviation airports, Flexjet’s private terminal facility offers a seamless on-the-ground experience for our passengers when they depart or arrive, including a private lounge and a dedicated ramp for clients who choose to drive directly to their aircraft.
A true escape in Muscat
Known as the pearl of Arabia, Oman offers a serene escape from reality. Steeped in beauty, history and atmosphere, the country is one of the most developed and stable in the Middle East.
The capital Muscat dates back over 5,000 years, and traditional Islamic architecture resonates with old world splendour. Nestled in its labyrinthine streets is the oldest market in the world – the traditional Muttrah Souk – a treasure trove of Bedouin jewellery, traditional Omani daggers, antiques and a wide range of spices.
Oman’s natural treasures are plentiful too, with the Ras al-Jinz Nature Reserve home to nesting turtles; wide deserts and other-worldly mountains including the pinnacle Jebel Shams; and the stunning Gulf of Oman, which offers a wide range of water sports and beachlife.
Flexjet partner hotel The Chedi Muscat brings together all of Oman’s highlights: Traditional style and architecture; exquisite comfort and hospitality; and a stunning setting between the Al Hajar mountains and the Arabian Sea. The lavish resort is set within 21 acres of peaceful gardens and exudes a relaxing and sophisticated style.
Flexjet aircraft Owners fly in and out of Muscat International Airport (OOMS), just a 15-minute drive away.
