Bombardier Skyjet Selected For American Express® "Ultimate Wishlist" Holiday Promotion

Bombardier Skyjet, the premier service for charter business jet travel and a unit of Bombardier, was selected this year for the prestigious American Express “Ultimate WishList” holiday promotion.

American Express has designed the ultimate holiday wish list full of luxury travel, jewelry, the latest electronics and more. With this unique promotion, they are making available a select number of the season’s most sought after items at “dream prices” to American Express Cardmembers in the United States. Skyjet was selected as one of the “hot” items this year, alongside many of the world’s most desired products and leading brands.

For example, three fortunate Cardmembers will be able to get the “Private Jet Experience from Bombardier Skyjet,” valued at more than $33,000 US, for the WishList price of only $3,000 US. The package includes five hours of flight time on a mid-size Bombardier Learjet with amenities such as credits for catering and ground transportation, and a $1,000 American Express gift card as an extra spending perk once Cardmembers reach their destination.

The unique promotion takes place at and is open to all U.S. consumers with American Express-branded cards.

Skyjet, which pioneered real-time online booking of business jets in 1997, is a leading provider of jet card membership programs and on-demand, pay-as-you-go charter services through a quality network of operators in North America.

“As an American Express Private Jet Services partner, Skyjet is delighted to have this opportunity to showcase our five-hour Learjet Gift Card through American Express' WishList. American Express Cardmembers are some of our best and most loyal customers," said Angela Ferragamo, director of marketing for Skyjet. "We are pleased to offer a great experience to these existing customers and also to introduce future customers to the private jet experience through this innovative promotion."

Each day from November 29 through December 16, a limited quantity of that day's featured hot item will be made available on the site at three different times - noon, 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. Eastern Time. Cardmembers simply click on the dedicated "I want it" button and have the opportunity to purchase the "WishList" item at the Cardmember-only price. If the inventory is sold out, Cardmembers will also have access to savings on great gift items from a variety of merchants. Cardmembers can preview the upcoming most sought after holiday items for the week by clicking on a specific day. More information can be found at
