Business Travel Show Europe Kick Off, 23 February,
Global Travel Risk Summit Europe, April 2023,
3rd Annual Sustainable Business Travel Summit
CONCORDE replacement ideas continue to subject fertile minds. NetJets, the fractional ownership operation, is joining the race by way of a major new programme that, it claims, will transform travel to North America and private aviation in Europe. The company has announced today that it will be basing long-range aircraft in Europe and that it will simultaneously drop all ferrying charges for fractional owners of those aircraft who fly across the Atlantic to destinations in the US (including Hawaii), Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. NetJets will initially offer Gulfstream IV-SP and Gulfstream V private jets, and intends to add the all-new Dassault Falcon 2000EX in the latter part of the year. The move is also in response to the increased demand experienced by the company in the current high security travel environment. The scrapping of ferrying charges will mean that purchasers of these fractions will not have to pay extra to have their planes positioned at the airports they are departing from, nor will there be additional charges. Netjets operate 43 Gulfstreams and five Boeing Business Jets, as well as 41 Dassault Falcon 2000s.
