Flight Options Launches JetPass

Program offers expanded access to the luxury and convenience of the Flight Options program

CLEVELAND (July 27, 2004) - Flight Options, LLC, a leading provider of private jet travel solutions and an affiliate of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN), announced today the launch of its JetPass program.  The Flight Options JetPass provides access to the Flight Options fleet in 25-hour increments without fractional ownership requirements.

“Many of our individual and corporate clients are looking for private flight options in addition to ownership,” said John Nahill, chairman and chief executive officer, Flight Options, LLC. “JetPass offers the luxury and convenience of private jet travel with a smaller commitment.  This is the perfect compliment to our fractional program.”

As an added incentive JetPass members who sign up now will be exempted from any fuel surcharge for their first 12 months of membership. Additionally, this seamless travel solution is fully refundable and offers clients a significant savings over fractional competitors’ jet card programs.

The Flight Options JetPass is available on the most requested aircraft in the Flight Options fleet - the Beechjet 400A, Hawker 800 fleet and a large cabin 10-passenger aircraft, such as the Challenger, Gulfstream IV and Legacy. 

JetPass members receive the benefits of the Flight Options fractional ownership program—safety, a consistent service experience, the best pilots in the industry and guaranteed availability.

“Flight Options is the first private aviation company to offer the full spectrum from membership to leases to fractional ownership, all under one company.  This all-encompassing approach truly reflects the best that private aviation has to offer by providing consistent service that transcends from one provider, ”added Nahill.
