  • Flexjet VIP Experience Offers Owners and their Guests Access to Private Skybox Overlooking the Auction Floor

CLEVELAND OH, January 14, 2019Flexjet LLC, offering travelers access to the world’s most luxurious fleet of private jets, today announced that it will host a Flexjet VIP experience at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction, known as “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction,” to be held at WestWorld of Scottsdale from January 16-20, 2019.

This is the second year Flexjet Owners have been invited to attend the iconic event, now in its 48th year, and they will have exclusive access to the comfort of the Flexjet VIP skybox, where they can enjoy crafted cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as they take in the auction throughout the week. Flexjet Owners have responded enthusiastically to the invitation – nearly all of this year’s skybox tickets have been claimed by Flexjet Owners and their guests.

“The interests of our Owners come in all forms, and many of them are aficionados of classic and high-performance automobiles,” said Christopher Bero, Flexjet Vice President of Global Marketing. “The Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction is rightly known as ‘The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction,’ and we are pleased to pair the exceptional Flexjet and Barrett-Jackson experiences for our Owners and their guests. We strive to bring our Owners an unprecedented experience not only in the air, but also on the ground to further lift their passions.”

In addition to food courts featuring cuisine from across the country, exhibitions by classic car companies and other displays, Flexjet Owners will be able to attend the event’s Restoration Row, which features live vehicle builds (including a Factory Five Barrett-Jackson Edition ’35 Hot Rod Truck) and interactive activities. They also can attend collector car and ‘automobilia’ auctions each day, participate in Ford and Chevrolet hot laps, Dodge thrill rides and attend a special symposium on car collecting with a panel of experts and celebrities. In addition, attendees can participate in a series of auctions designed to benefit charities including Operation Homefront, the Gary Sinise Foundation and diabetes research supporter JDRF.
