Qatar Airways announced a strategic alliance with fractional jet programme provider Flexjet to offer customers access to over 5,000 destinations beyond the Doha-based airline’s four North American gateways.
The new agreement enables customers travelling on Qatar Airways’ scheduled flights to and from New York, Washington, Houston and Montreal, to book a private premium jet service in a single transaction to cover over 5,000 airports across the region.
Flexjet provides access to more than 80 modern executive aircraft. Aircraft available as part of the Flexjet Connect programme, are operated by U.S. air carrier Jet Solutions.
The exclusive partnership, managed by the airline’s private jet division Qatar Executive as part of Qatar Airways’ premium product portfolio, will ensure passengers seamless and hassle-free onward connections in America, Canada, as well as parts of Mexico and the tropical islands of the Bahamas and Turks & Caicos.
Flexjet president Fred Reid said: “With a growing focus on the international business market, we have seen an increase in demand for travel to the Middle East and the surrounding regions. The alliance with Qatar Airways provides a global aviation solution to our owners. It’s a win-win situation for all.”
