Bombardier Flexjet Expands Into ... Canada
Flexjet, the fractional operation run by Canadian airframer Bombardier, said this week it is expanding its services into its home country. In essence, Flexjet is diverting three aircraft in its corporate fleet -- two Learjet 45s and a Challenger 604 -- to dedicated domestic service out of Montreal. Initially, ten pilots will crew the three jets. Bombardier said its new "Flexjet Canada" service will enable, for the first time, travel between locations within Canada for owners based there. Along with the new point-to-point service within Canada, the company hopes the additional capacity will improve service for customers traveling between Canada and the U.S.
“We now have the ability to offer Flexjet owners travel within Canada, which represents a tremendous opportunity to expand our services there and introduce more people to the outstanding Flexjet travel experience,” said Sylvain Lévesque, vice president, Bombardier Flexjet. “Our new Flexjet Canada service is yet another indication of our ongoing commitment to providing our owners with industry-leading service, value and choice,” he added.
