ONWARDS & UPWARDS INTO 2022
December 16, 2021
As the year draws to a close, we’re reflecting on an exceptional year here at Flexjet – and looking ahead to an eventful and exciting 2022.
Private aviation has seen record levels of demand this year and we have seen this close at hand. Here in our European operation, we have grown our flight activity four-fold compared to 2020, with our European Owners increasing in number and flying much more often.
Here are just some of our 2021 news highlights and a look ahead to our plans for 2022.
Investing to meet demand
We continue to expand our fleet, our team and our business infrastructure to meet this additional demand, with our Legacy 500s and Praetor 600s performing exceptionally well. In addition to our UK-based fleet, we now have three aircraft and a new Operations Centre in Malta which we opened in July, giving us more flexibility on inter-European routes.
In 2022 we are excited to be adding a significant number of new aircraft to our European fleet, including more long-range capability, and we look forward to sharing more detail on that early in the new year.
Extra operational capabilities
Our advanced operational capability is enabled by our dedicated crew training and aircraft performance and our team is continually working to complete advanced training to provide access to more airports.
This includes high altitude airports, which are particularly popular in the winter months, and in the coming weeks we will be busy flying many Owners to alpine airports, including Samedan, Sion and Chambery.
Expanding our events & partnerships
Flexjet is focused on delivering truly memorable experiences, and this is an ethos that we extend beyond our flights. We have been delighted to deliver some one-of-a-kind Owner events this year, including an outdoor escape to Scotland in August at The Fife Arms; and an exclusive tasting and lunch at the world-renowned Chateau d’Yquem in Bordeaux in November.
In 2022 we look forward to extending this programme and to offering Owners and their guests the opportunity to enjoy exclusive events and arrangements with some of our like-minded partners. This will begin with the spectacular St Moritz Snow Polo in January, for which Flexjet is proud to be a sponsor.
We take an industry-leading approach to sustainability at Flexjet, raising the bar by starting above where most others end. This includes offsetting every flight at 300% of carbon emissions, investing in six carefully chosen and accredited projects in areas including solar and wind energy.
We also give Owners the option to go further through the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) or supporting investment in future flight development.
