- Expecting Record Travel Demand to America’s Premier Golf Event
- Private Terminal Pop-Up at Augusta Regional Airport
- Flexjet to Provide Novel Touches to Enhance Experience for their Owners and Guests
CLEVELAND, April 5, 2019 – Flexjet LLC, a leading provider of fractional jet ownership, today announced some of the travel experience-enhancing touches that have become revered by its Owners and guests during Masters week at Augusta Regional Airport. The Masters, with tournament play occurring April 11-14, surpasses the Super Bowl and the Kentucky Derby as a favored sports event destination for private jet travelers, and Flexjet expects record travel to Augusta this year.
“At The Masters, our Owners are often reconnecting with family or entertaining clients or business partners, so they look to us to provide the world’s most personalized and well-executed private air travel experience,” said Flexjet Chief Operations Officer Megan Wolf. “We take pride in bringing exclusive experiences to our Owners, and we understand the importance of paying fanatical attention to detail with our genuine hospitality, ground services and the smoothest possible post-tournament return home.”
A Flexjet-Exclusive Private Terminal Pop-Up
Flexjet’s presence at Augusta Regional Airport (ICAO: KAGS) will match the levels of service and hospitality that Owners would experience at its exclusive Private Terminals. Flexjet will provide a private hospitality lounge with Flexjet team members on hand to help with Owner travel logistics.
This year’s theme for the ramp-side lounge will be “Wood and Iron,” celebrating the heritage of golf. The hospitality team will be serving a variety of cocktails including a gin and tonic station, beer, wine and nonalcoholic beverages as well as a high-protein snack bar to fuel a long day at the course. Flexjet Owners will receive arrival and departure gifts to help put them in the Masters’ spirit, remember their experience and ensure they return home refreshed.
Just for fun, Flexjet will offer a Par 2 putt-putt course down the center of a Red Label by Flexjet Challenger 350 aircraft cabin on static display at Augusta Regional Airport. Owners can practice their putting and win prizes for making par. The Challenger 350 is part of the premium Red Label by Flexjet offering, which includes the fractional industry’s most modern fleet, dedicated flight crews and the LXi Cabin Collection of artisan interiors.
The Masters: A Seamless Continuity of Service for Flexjet Owners
The amenities and service offered by Flexjet ensure a smooth passage through Augusta Regional Airport, which sees around 3,000 private jet landings and takeoffs during Masters week.
Moreover, private jet travel enables those who want to spend a few hours watching a practice round or a day or two at Augusta National, to fly in and out efficiently.
“One of the perks of flying privately is that our Owners can book their flights with as little as 10 hours’ notice and, sometimes, on demand, giving them maximum flexibility,” said Wolf. “We are expecting a very strong fly-in for this year’s Masters based on the high demand we have seen around all holidays and major sporting events so far this year, as well as record utilization of our fleet last year.”
Flexjet first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995. Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership and leasing. Flexjet’s fractional aircraft program is the first in the world to be recognized as achieving the Air Charter Safety Foundation’s Industry Audit Standard, is the first and only company to be honored with 20 FAA Diamond Awards for Excellence, upholds an ARG/US Platinum Safety Rating and is IS-BAO compliant at Level 2. Flexjet’s fractional program fields an exclusive array of business aircraft—some of the youngest in the fractional jet industry, with an average age of approximately six years. In 2015, Flexjet introduced Red Label by Flexjet, which features the youngest fleet in the industry, flight crews dedicated to a single aircraft and the LXi Cabin Collection of interiors. To date there are more than 25 different interior designs across its fleet, which includes the Learjet 75LXi, Challenger 350, the Embraer Legacy 450, Global Express, the Gulfstream G450, G500 and G650, and the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jets.
