FrontRunners: Gold Standard

    The Vancouver Winter Olympic Games’ official hospitality provider, Jet Set Sports, has teamed up with Bombardier to offer the Flexjet 25 Jet Card—2010 Gold Edition (www.flexjet25.com/2010), a flight program and travel package centered on the 21st Winter Games. In addition to receiving 25, 30, or 35 hours of flight time aboard any Bombardier aircraft in Flexjet’s fleet, which is operated by Jet Solutions, cardholders will have the opportunity to meet with an Olympic athlete at the Games and receive two tickets to the closing ceremony and other events. The card, priced from about $123,000, also includes ground transportation, a personal concierge, dinners at top restaurants in Vancouver, and a three-night stay (February 26 to March 1) at the Sutton Place Hotel.
