Ultimate Gift Card


CLEVELAND, Ohio - November 8, 2007 - For the affluent traveler, this year's definitive gift is considerably larger than a breadbox, yet it easily tucks into a wallet. The JetPASS Ultimate Travel membership card from Flight Options, a Raytheon company (NYSE: RTN), offers the luxury of private-jet travel without the asset purchase of fractional ownership. The slim, wallet-sized card provides members with access to the Flight Options fleet of the most popular and top-performing jets in the industry. 


"Flight Options' JetPASS Ultimate Travel membership card is the perfect gift for anyone who has ever wanted to sample the time savings and luxury of private-jet travel," said S. Michael Scheeringa, chief executive officer, Flight Options, LLC.


The JetPASS Ultimate Travel membership program requires an initial deposit of $100,000 (renewed at $50,000), with "all-in" hourly rates as low as $3,425 per flight hour with no repositioning costs, fuel fees or catering charges. Any unused balance is fully refundable, so that members ultimately only pay for the hours they use. JetPASS Ultimate Travel is the most innovative private-jet card available, offering peak/off-peak variable pricing with one-way and round-trip options.  It is also distinguished by:


  • Access: Flight Options boasts the world's largest fleet of Beechjet and Legacy Executive aircraft, and is the only fractional provider to offer the Legacy.


  • Flexibility: Members choose the aircraft that best suits their needs for a particular flight, from a light-cabin jet ideal for transporting two to a Napa Valley inn or romantic Caribbean hideaway, to a midsize jet to take the leadership team to an important meeting, to a large-cabin aircraft that will whisk the entire family to Cabo San Lucas or Aspen.

Those interested in purchasing the ultimate holiday gift may do so by calling 877.703.2348 or visiting for more information.
