Bombardier Skyjet, the premier service for booking private business jets and a unit of Bombardier, is offering the ultimate luxury travel experience - five hours of flight time on a legendary Bombardier Learjet - as a holiday gift card this season.
The Bombardier Learjet Gift Card from Bombardier Skyjet offers five hours of flight time in a Learjet business jet through Skyjet's quality network of charter operators. The Bombardier Learjet Gift Card is available at a price of $22,000 (U.S) for five hours of travel on a light Learjet aircraft or $32,000 (U.S.) for five hours of travel on a mid-size Learjet. The card may be used for one-way trips or round-trip travel, and it may be used for a single flight or multiple trips from any of 5,000 airports in the continental United States. Complete details may be found at www.skyjet.com.
The fortunate few who receive the Learjet Gift Card this year will be treated to a complimentary bottle of champagne as part of their onboard catering along with a $200 (U.S.) voucher for any Bombardier Learjet-branded official merchandise available from the Learjet Store (www.learjetstore.com).
The online store offers a wide selection of items including apparel, luggage, travel accessories, sports gear and executive gifts.
Bombardier Skyjet, which pioneered real-time online booking of business jets in 1997, is a leading provider of jet card membership programs and on-demand, pay-as-you-go charter services. The five-hour gift card offers many of the benefits of the Skyjet Card, normally offered in increments of 25, 50 and 100 hours of flight. Benefits include guaranteed travel with an advanced reservation, no additional deadhead charges for one-way travel, and no charges for repositioning of aircraft. The flat-rate prices of the gift card are inclusive of taxes, fees and fuel charges.
"Private jet travel has become the ultimate status symbol, and the Bombardier Learjet Gift Card is the ultimate gift for the holiday season," said Alexandre Monnier, managing director, Bombardier Skyjet. "The Learjet brand is an enduring icon of business aviation and the Bombardier Learjet travel experience combines unrivaled speed and performance with the comfort and convenience that only a private jet can deliver," he added.
Mr. Monnier pointed out that aficionados of the Bombardier Learjet brand can also choose from a number of gifts available through the online store, starting at $15.
