Ultimate Christmas gift: Flexjet to the Olympics
Have you booked your ticket to Vancouver yet? The Winter Olympics are coming, and you can count on flights being packed. When that happens, even first class flying's a drag. And, there's no upscale treatment for every other part of the travel experience -- from curb to gate and baggage claim to the door -- which is were you're bound to spend at least several hours on your journey. If you want to make your trip to the Games memorable, skip the airlines and go private. The Flexjet 25 Jet Card program offers the travel experience you deserve, and a partnership with the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games will get you access to behind the scenes action that the regular fans won't even know is possible. Quantities are limited, and you'll need to travel between February 26 and March 1, 2010.
Guests buying the Flexjet 25 Jet Card -- 2010 Gold Edition will receive exclusive access to an award-winning athlete and a look behind the action in Vancouver. But, this is nothing compared to tickets to the events that everyone wants to see: the Closing Ceremony, Men's Ice Hockey Gold Medal Game, Figure Skating Gala Exhibition and three Short-Track Speed Skating gold medal races. You'll also receive three nights at Vancouver's Sutton Place Hotel and access to the city's top restaurants. And you'll have your choice of jets, including the Learjet 40 XR, Learjet 45 XR, Learjet 60, Challenger 300 or Challenger 604 business jets.
This is far more than mere private jet travel: the latest from Flexjet 25 is an unparalleled experience in one of the world's most memorable athletic traditions.
"We continually search for ways to create unique travel opportunities that provide unparalleled access for our owners, wherever their travels take them," said Sylvain Levesque, Vice President, Marketing, Flexjet 25. "In a time when consumers are more discerning with their spending, we are excited to offer this once-in-a-lifetime experience that jet card owners will remember for years to come."
Sead Dizdarevic, Chairman and CEO of Jet Set Sports, which is partnering with Flexjet, "Our partnership is a winning combination of the best in private aviation with the premier hospitality our customers have come to look forward to at the Games."
This is the second jet card inspired by an expert offer. Last year's involved exclusive access to private meeting experts, with packages offering inside looks at the art world with Barbara Guggenheim and learning to play Texas Hold 'em from World Poker Tour bracelet winner Antonio Esfandiari, among others.
