Delta AirElite announced
today that for a limited time, all new and renewing Fleet Membership and
Flexjet Membership members will be offered the Membership Balance
Assurance (MBA) program at no cost. This special promotion is yet another
benefit that Delta AirElite can offer jet card users.
“We’ve always offered our members the option of enrolling in the MBA
program when they purchase their membership,” said Michael B. Green,
president and chief executive officer of Delta AirElite Business Jets.
“This program, which gives our members the added benefit of knowing their
membership balance is secure, has proven to be very popular. Since all jet
card programs require their members to pre-pay, we’re offering this
benefit free of charge to prospective and renewing members to reinforce
the AirElite difference.”
Delta AirElite offers the MBA program in partnership with The Provident
Bank. As members purchase their card, their membership balance is placed
in a Provident Bank escrow account. As the membership hours are used,
funds to cover the flight charges are released to Delta AirElite to cover
each respective trip. This guarantees that the balance of the member’s
investment is always secure.
As a leading provider of private jet travel solutions, Delta AirElite
offers a unique blend of travel options for its customers. The company
introduced its Fleet Membership program in February 2003. Fleet Membership
offers 25, 50 and 100 hours of occupied flight time in the member’s choice
of a light, midsize or large cabin jet. The hours never expire and members
have an option to exit the program at any time.
Flexjet Membership, introduced in October 2003, is a strategic partnership
with Bombardier Flexjet, and allows members to purchase 25 hours in a
specific type aircraft: Learjet 31A, Learjet 45, Learjet 60, or Challenger
604. Both membership programs offer travelers the service levels they
expect with fractional ownership, but with the flexibility and cost
advantages of charter.
