Flexjet now offers whole aircraft ownership and management, fractional jet ownership, jet cards and charter brokerage services.

Flexjet's fractional program fields an exclusive family of Bombardier business aircraft—the youngest in the fractional jet industry with an average age of approximately five years—including the Learjet 40 XR, Learjet 45 XR, Learjet 60 XR, Challenger 300 and Challenger 605 business jets.
