Move will accommodate Skyjet growth and leverage synergies with Flexjet
Bombardier Skyjet, the premier service for booking privately chartered business jets and a unit of Bombardier, announced that the company is relocating its headquarters from Fairfax, Va., to the Dallas metro area. The move will be completed in June. Skyjet will co-locate its headquarters office with that of Bombardier Flexjet - the fractional ownership program of Bombardier – in Richardson, Texas, to accommodate its growth and further leverage synergies with Flexjet.
“Our business continues to grow at a rapid rate, which requires additional resources, office space and systems,” said Alexandre Monnier, managing director, Bombardier Skyjet. “Because the Richardson office complex is already a major center for Bombardier Flexjet, the infrastructure in place will accelerate our ability to meet these needs. And, while Skyjet will remain a stand-alone business with independent operations, the co-location with Flexjet will increase opportunities for synergies,” he stated.
Mr. Monnier said certain functions will begin to transition to Dallas in April and May, with the final relocation scheduled to be completed in June to allow for a seamless transition. The Bombardier Skyjet regional sales organization will not be affected as those individuals are based in key locations throughout the country.
The new address for Skyjet will be: 3400 Waterview Parkway, Suite 400, Richardson, Texas 75080. The main number will remain 1-888-2-SKYJET.
About Bombardier Skyjet
Founded in 1997 and acquired by Bombardier Aerospace in 2000, Bombardier Skyjet offers the Skyjet Card for frequent private jet travelers. The Skyjet Card offers members a choice of 25, 50 or 100 flight hours in a preferred size of aircraft, and guaranteed availability with a 12-hour advanced reservation. By charging a simple hourly rate for each hour flown, the Skyjet Card eliminates the deadhead costs associated with one-way jet travel and takes the confusion out of charter jet pricing. Skyjet is the only jet card provider offering the option of earning credit toward whole or fractional aircraft ownership. In addition, the Learjet Card and the Challenger Jet Card offer members the opportunity to specify the Bombardier Learjet 31/31A, Bombardier Learjet 60 or Bombardier Challenger 604 as their aircraft of choice.
