NetJets is an U.S. company that sells part ownership or shares of private business jets. The company was founded in 1964. It was the first private business jet charter and aircraft management company in the world. Additionally, NetJets’ fleet is the largest private jet fleet in the world with nearly 700 aircraft worldwide. By 2006, it was the largest supplier of business jets in Europe, and the ninth largest air carrier on the continent.

NetJets offers three programs to fit individual needs, lifestyle and budget.

NetJet Shares

Enjoy fractional jet ownership of the NetJets fleet. The benefits of this program include on-demand private jet service, ownership benefits, and customized plans to suit your flying needs. NetJets sells fractions of an aircraft, chosen from other available types at the time of purchase. Owners then have guaranteed access to that aircraft with as little as four hours notice. If the Owner’s aircraft is unavailable for some reason, another aircraft of the same type will be provided.

Netjet Lease

Private jet leasing made easy. Purchase time with the NetJets fleet and build customized flight plans for your convenience. Fractional owners pay a monthly maintenance fee and an “occupied” hourly operating fee. The latter is charged only when an owner or guest is on board, not when the aircraft is on its way to pick up, or en route to another destination after completing a flight.

Marquis Jet Card

Because the fleet is available 25 hours at a time, members can enjoy private jet access and guaranteed availability without the long-term commitment. Companies or individuals requiring less than the minimum 50 flight hours and the five-year commitment of fractional ownership can buy flight hours in 25-hour increments.

Whatever your travel needs, they will work with you to create a tailored solution. Their programs suit a range of private jet prices, travel habits, and jet preferences, whether you own a NetJets Share, have a NetJets Lease, or buy a Marquis Jet Card. Every one of their programs provides a private jet at a cost much lower than outright aircraft ownership and gives you the added benefits of their management and travel services.
