Flexjet to boost US private jet fleet with 22 extra aircraft before end of 2023


American private jet firm Flexjet will add 22 more business aircraft to its United States (US) fleet before the end of 2023.  

The growth target means that the company’s fleet will have doubled in size between 2018 and 2023, reaching 148 aircraft. 

This year, Flexjet added the Embraer Praetor 600 to its North American fleet after two years of success in Europe and seven years of operating the Praetor 500 and its predecessor, the Legacy 450. 

Flexjet has also incorporated the Bombardier Challenger 3500 in its super midsized private jet offering. 

“Together with the existing Embraer Praetor 500 and Challenger 350 aircraft flying in our fleet, the addition of the Praetor 600 and the Challenger 3500 has given Flexjet the industry’s leading offering of mid- and super midsized aircraft,” said Flexjet Executive Vice President of Sales, D.J. Hanlon. “The aircraft available to travelers within this offering present mission versatility that is unmatched by any other private aviation provider.” 

Since 2020, the Praetor 600 has been the backbone of Flexjet’s fast-growing European fleet, prompting its introduction into the US market.  

Fractional owners of the aircraft in Flexjet’s mid- and super midsized fleet will benefit from the Red Label by Flexjet program which features pilots assigned to a specific aircraft. 

In 2023, Flexjet plans to bring its global fleet size to more than 270 private jet aircraft by year-end (excluding helicopters). 

Worldwide, the fleet’s composition includes the Embraer Phenom 300 and the Praetor 500 and 600, the Bombardier Challenger 350 and 3500, and the Gulfstream G450 and G650.
