The Best of the Best 2003: Flight Services - NetJets

  • Fluto Shinzawa

For the heavy-duty executive traveler who requires more than 50 hours of fractional flight time per year, NetJets offers unparalleled service and selection. From the NetJets fleet of nearly 500 aircraft, owners can choose from 12 different models, ranging from the Citation Bravo to the long-distance Boeing Business Jet.

NetJets’ prices are among the industry’s highest (an entry-level cost of $350,000 for a one-sixteenth share, plus management and flight fees), but owners enjoy the services of Air Security International, a company that specializes in aviation security, and unparalleled office equipment in the fleet’s wide-body jets.
