The Best of the Best 2003: Flight Services - Marquis Jet Partners

  • Fluto Shinzawa

For passengers who seek access to the world’s largest fleet of fractional aircraft but do not plan on flying more than 25 hours per year, Marquis Jet Partners offers an optimal program. A Marquis owner can fly on NetJets planes, which include the Cessna Citation X and Raytheon Hawker 800XP, without paying a one-time membership fee or committing to a five-year ownership plan. Prices range from $109,000 (for 25 hours in a Cessna Citation V Ultra) to $329,000 (for 25 hours in a Gulfstream IV-SP) per year.
