The Swiss former pro cyclist and current Olympic time trial champion Fabian Cancellara becomes a brand ambassador for FLYINGGROUP. After having been a satisfied and loyal charter customer for many years he now upgrades to the shared ownership formula.
Cancellara: ” Although my travel needs have changed since I stopped professional cycling I still find Safety and flexibility very important. Even being based in Switzerland the people of FLYINGGROUP have served me perfectly whenever the usual scheduled services couldn’t meet my needs. Over the years we have developed a good relationship and I am happy and proud to become a brand ambassador.”
FLYINGGROUP’s shared ownership is a fast and cost-effective way of travelling, ideal for people who travel regularly. With this formula you can fully tailor the use of a business aircraft and related expenses to your actual flying need at only a fraction of the cost of full ownership of an aircraft.
“Although it remains a niche product it is good to see that there is a renewed interest in the shared ownership formula from various clients in Europe. It is exciting to see that this clientele is very diverse: from the occasional leisure traveller in Malaga to the frequent business traveller based in Paris or even clients with different bases according to the seasons”, says Johan Van Lokeren, CEO of FLYINGGROUP. “We have just added a brand new Citation CJ3+ to the shared ownership fleet to meet demand.”
