Bombardier Skyjet Announces Increased Flexibility to its Jet Card Program

Bombardier Skyjet , the pioneer service for online booking of private jets and provider of the Skyjet Card, has announced the latest enhancement to its jet card program. Effective immediately, Skyjet Card members are able to apply their jet card funds toward their on-demand charter trips.

“This allows our members additional cost savings,” says Skyjet Managing Director Chris Milligan. He explained that if Skyjet can find a better value with an empty leg charter flight that fits the card member’s travel needs, the customer may use his or her jet card account to fund the trip.

Milligan says he understands the need to provide customers with additional value to their jet card program and is pleased to offer this new feature. “Our goal is to provide our customers with world-class service, quality aircraft and unmatched value. We feel strongly that this latest enhancement will create opportunities for customers to reduce their travel expenses yet retain the dependability of the Skyjet Card membership”.

The Skyjet Card membership provides guaranteed availability with an advance reservation, guaranteed hourly rates, no added charges for repositioning and the assurance that all Skyjet network charter operators have successfully passed an on-site, third-party audit. Flight costs are deducted from the customer’s initial deposit, which may be replenished as funds are used. Skyjet Cards have no expiration date, and customers may exit the program and receive a refund for the unused portion of their cards.

Skyjet continues to evolve and adapt to our customer needs by listening to their feedback and implementing their requests,” said Mr. Milligan. “Our team is dedicated to providing an outstanding experience from start to finish every time our customers fly.
