2022: More Jets, More Pilots, More Private Terminals
January 1, 2022
2021 has been a year of change and extraordinary growth for Flexjet and 2022 looks to be just as exciting.
- Flexjet has added 21 aircraft to its fleet this year, including Gulfstream G650s and G450s, Bombardier Challenger 350s, Embraer Praetor 500s (in North America), Praetor 600s (in Europe) and Phenom 300s. The addition of the G650s will help meet demand for Flexjet’s newly-launched Unlimited Access Program, which enables Owners of the iconic G650 to right-size their choice of aircraft for any given flight and choose either direct account credits or additional flight hours.
- This global provider of fractional private jets is increasing its North American-based fleet by nearly 40 percent between now and the end of 2022 by investing $850 million in aircraft. Flexjet will increase its fleet to 231 by the end of 2022, expediting orders already in place with manufacturers Gulfstream, Bombardier and Embraer.
- Flexjet already had more than 800 pilots at the beginning of 2021 and hired 169 more, by the end of the year. That growth will result in the company’s highest pilot headcount ever. The pilots’ direct relationship with management, industry leading pay and benefits and the Red Label by Flexjet program make Flexjet a career destination for experienced pilots.
- The company is recruiting nearly another 300 pilots by the end of 2022. This is part of Flexjet’s plan to hire an additional 450 aviation professionals system-wide by year-end 2022, bolstering every department in the company including ground support teams and customer service staff.
More Private Terminals
- Flexjet’s new private terminal at Teterboro Airport (New Jersey) opened just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday and the Dallas Love Field Airport (Texas) also opened in 2021. These are in addition to our existing support services provided by fixed-base operators and join current Flexjet-exclusive facilities at Naples Airport (Florida), Palm Beach International Airport (Florida), Westchester County Airport (New York), and Van Nuys Airport (California).
- The company is already in the planning stages for a private terminal at Scottsdale (Arizona). Look for more details on this terminal soon.
- In addition, Flexjet has broken ground on a new Global Operations Center adjacent to its current facility at Cuyahoga County Airport in Cleveland, Ohio. The futuristic headquarters will serve as the master logistics and control center for the entire global network of flights operated by Flexjet.
