FlexJet Flexes Into Canada
Bombardier Flexjet, the
fractional business jet ownership program of Bombardier Aerospace,
told Aero-News Friday the company is expanding its services into
Canada. Three Canadian-registered aircraft and ten Montreal-based
pilots will now allow Flexjet to serve Canadian customers.
The new Flexjet Canada service will enable Flexjet to offer
Canadians expanded travel options including, for the first time,
point-to-point travel between locations within Canada for owners
based there. Flexjet will also utilize the new capacity to more
efficiently service existing owners who travel between Canada and
the United States.
Flexjet is launching the service with two Learjet 45 aircraft
and a Challenger 604 widebody business jet, all of which will be
based in Montreal. The aircraft were originally in
parent-company-Bombardier's corporate fleet.
"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 Bombardier Flexjet VP Sylvain
"Flexjet is the first fractional provider to offer
Canadian-based aircraft, and we take pride in being responsive to
owners who have eagerly anticipated this travel option," added Mr.
