“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
Jet Card Offers Free Hours
Boston-based Magellan Jets is offering two free hours of flight time with the purchase of a 25-hour jet card for the Hawker 800XP. The company, which does not own or operate aircraft, offers flights with 10 hours’ notice and does not bill for repositioning or assess fuel surcharges. Card membership includes standard catering and VIP ground transportation. The two-free-hours deal applies for a “limited time,” but no expiration date has been announced.
