NetJets Expands Middle East Reach

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

DUBAI, UAE — According to reports from local media here, The NetJets Middle East Programme, provided by National Aviation Services (NAS), has launched a 25-hour ‘Jet Card’, a new service giving cardholders access to their own executive jet and the largest private jet fleet in the region, 25-hours at a time.

“The card is the first of its kind in the Middle East, designed to bring all of the benefits of private aircraft ownership including guaranteed availability and the highest levels of safety and security but at a fraction of the cost of owning an aircraft outright,”’ the private jet operator said in a press release.

Card holders will benefit from being part of the fractional programme, such as guaranteed availability, the ability to interchange to other aircraft types and interchange to aircraft in Europe and the US are fully available to card holders, For these customers, the flexibility of a 25-hour card means only being committed to the programme for a time that suits them, and with the flexibility of ‘buying’ additional hours. The card effectively enables them to trial before buying.

The NetJets Middle East Programme brought fractional aircraft ownership programmes to the Middle East. Owners buy or lease a fractional interest in an executive aircraft based on the number of hours they are likely to fly in a year, The NetJets Middle East Programme then provides them with an aircraft to suit their flight profile taking into consideration passenger comfort, range requirements and frequency of flights and will take care of the operational aspects of aircraft ownership. Fractional ownership was invented by NetJets in the US and through this affiliation; the owners have access to the world’s largest fleet of executive aircraft.

While clients take a fractional ownership share in a specific aircraft, the freedom is there to interchange between aircraft types in accordance with their specific usage requirements, per booking. Ownership costs are guaranteed for five years.
