Longterm lease signifies commitment to passengers, community
Elite Jets has extended its lease with the Naples Airport Authority to continue operating its luxury charter service through 2050.
Since its founding in 2015, Elite Jets has grown to include a private terminal at Naples Airport consisting of three adjacent hangars. The company serves affluent business and leisure travelers with a fleet that includes four Embraer Phenom 300s and one Embraer Legacy 500, luxury jets that serve destinations across North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. Elite Jets also owns a Bell 407 helicopter available for sightseeing and travel across South Florida. Additionally, the company provides management services for a Gulfstream G550 jet capable of long-haul flights to Europe and Asia.
“Naples Airport is a tremendous asset for Collier County residents and visitors, and its impact on our local economy and way of life is immeasurable,” said Elite Jets President Mark London. “This new lease signifies our commitment to continue serving Collier County for many years to come, both from an aviation standpoint and as a community partner to the nonprofits that make Southwest Florida such a great place to live.”
Elite Jets has supported numerous charitable organizations with monetary and in-kind donations, including Guadalupe Center, St. Matthew’s House, Wounded Warriors, the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and others.
Approximately 10 aircraft charter companies have relationships with Naples Airport, which offers short-term hangar rentals and long-term leases.
“As a lifelong Naples resident myself, I recognize the benefits of having this jewel in our backyard,” said Executive Vice President Stephen Myers, CAM. “Elite Jets is proud to extend Naples Airport’s vision of creating an exceptional airport experience with our mission of providing an exceptional travel experience.”
VIP travel experiences at Elite Jets start with its client services team, which operates as a personal concierge during the booking process. In addition to confirming flight logistics, passengers can make meal and snack selections in advance. Onboard, passengers can enjoy personalized temperature controls, recliner-like leather massaging seats, high-speed Wi-Fi, a fully stocked bar and a digital entertainment system to watch movies, TV shows and news. The company’s White Diamond Concierge Services includes door-to-door chauffeur services in its Tesla Model X, auto detailing services on site and a private Tesla charging station.
