About Bombardier Skyjet
Founded in 1997 and acquired by Bombardier Aerospace in 2000, Bombardier Skyjet is the premier reservation system for booking charter business jets. By calling 1-888-2-SKYJET or visiting www.skyjet.com, customers can reserve a wide range of aircraft offered by a quality network of safety-audited charter operators. The company’s Premier Fleet™ membership program offers blocks of charter time – 25, 50 or 100 hours – in a preferred size of aircraft, and provides guaranteed availability with a 12-hour advanced reservation. By charging one simple hourly rate for each hour flown, Premier Fleet eliminates the deadhead costs associated with one-way jet travel and takes the confusion out of charter jet pricing.
