Bombardier Launches Skyjet International
Bombardier last month introduced Skyjet International, which it bills as the first integrated global charter program providing customers with unrestricted and fixed-price access to more than 900 business jets worldwide. The company also said it is expanding into the Middle East, expanding a charter-aircraft network already operating across Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America. Bombardier Skyjet International is scheduled to begin service this month and will combine the company's current Flexjet Europe and Flexjet Asia-Pacific program under one banner. "It is in our corporate DNA to understand market needs and to provide solutions to emerging trends,” stated Judith Moreton, managing director of Bombardier Skyjet International. According to the company, Bombardier Skyjet International -- along with Bombardier Skyjet -- is the "only service of its kind to be developed by a business aircraft manufacturer." The operation uses the Bombardier Learjet 31A, 40, 45/45XR and 60; the Bombardier Challenger 300, 601-3R, 604 and 800; and the Bombardier Global Express aircraft.
