Managing Director Judith Moreton said: "Our objective is to remove as many of the restrictions to charter travel as possible and offer customers throughout the Middle East the complete freedom to travel the way they choose, when they choose, and as far and wide as they choose, no strings attached."
She said the flexibility and added value of the new card surpasses any block-hour programme currently available. New flat-fee pricing delivers the peace of mind and predictability that comes with a fixed price per route. Flexible blocks enable customers to purchase the precise number of hours they wish - with no minimums - and the contract period can be extended so customers may choose between one and three years. In addition, cardholders enjoy a 20 per cent discount on same-day return trips.
A cardholder flying between Dubai and Istanbul, for instance, pays only for the stipulated flight time, with no extra costs such as fuel surcharges or additional fees for holding times.
Hourly rates vary according to customer requirements for aircraft model or type, aircraft availability, extent of advance notice, ground services and payment options, and cardholders may add or change options at will.
And members purchasing more than 25 hours have access to exclusive privileges and benefits such as special offers on luxury brands, invitations to prestigious events, access to yachts and aircraft upgrades.
Middle Eastern cardholders may use their hours anywhere worldwide, with access to more than 5,500 airports and with no penalties for flying into and within different regions. Skyjet has 24-hour operations centres in Dubai, London, Hong Kong and Dallas.
Existing Jet Membership card members will have the option to either adhere to their existing terms for an unlimited period or switch to the new Jet Member card.
Bombardier has 47 business jets based in the Middle East and the subcontinent, about 14 per cent of the total, said Moreton.
