NetJets Launches Supplemental Lift Assurance

NetJets, private aviation’s largest fractional-share provider, recently announced its Supplemental Lift Assurance program, which follows the massive purchase agreement the company signed with jet manufacturers Cessna and Bombardier in June. NetJets’ Supplemental Lift Assurance grants flight departments and whole-aircraft owners full access to the NetJets fleet in case of unscheduled maintenance or other short-term issues grounding the owner’s plane. The program does not require a specified number of hours or a long-term commitment, and participants in the program can get aboard a replacement jet with as little as four hours of advance notice.
