Korean Air, FlexJet Sign Landmark Alliance

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

In the first North American alliance between a fractional jet provider and an international airline, Flexjet fractional owners who use Korean Air for overseas travel will now have access to premium services. As part of the newly created Flexjet Connect* program, operated by U.S. air carrier Jet Solutions, Korean Air passengers can secure private point-to-point travel throughout the U.S. on a fleet of high-performance business jets.

“This first-of-its-kind collaboration with Korean Air adds value to our program offerings, while further expanding our global reach,” said Fred Reid, President, Flexjet. “For our discerning fractional customers, this strategic partnership between two industry leaders obsessed with excellence ensures they will experience the same level of comfort and high-quality travel they have come to expect from Flexjet.”

“Korean Air flies between more cities in North America and more cities in Asia than any other airline in the world,” said Walter Cho, Senior Vice President, Passenger Business Division, Korean Air. “Now our customers can fly privately from a local airport to catch their Korean Air flight, or get closer to their meetings by flying to regional airports, knowing that our partners at Flexjet and Jet Solutions will provide a seamless and convenient travel experience with impeccable service.”

For the past two years, Robb Report has named Flexjet the “Best of Best” for customer service, and Flexjet is consistently recognized as an innovator in the business aviation industry. In addition, Korean Air has won countless awards, including the “Best Airline in Asia” for the third straight year by readers of Business Traveler magazine. For the second year in a row, Korean Air was also awarded the “Global Catering Distinction Award” by PAX International magazine, one of the global travel catering industry’s leading publications.

As part of the marketing alliance, Flexjet fractional owners will receive incentives to purchase first class tickets on Korean Air when traveling between the Americas and East Asia and a series of benefits, including elite status for a full year. This generous benefit provides a variety of privileges and exclusive travel services, including access to Prestige Class Lounges, dedicated check-in at Korean Air International Flight First Class and an all-around luxury concierge service throughout select airports. Korean Air has 10 gateways in the United States and two in Canada.

Korean Air passengers obtain guaranteed access to more than 5,000 U.S. airports with as little as 24-hours’ notice on a fleet of high-performance Bombardier business jets, operated by Jet Solutions.
