Marquis Jet Has Georgia on its Mind

Marquis Jet and
The Sea Island Company, a 76-year-old Georgia-based
resort and real estate development company, announced an unprecedented
alliance coupling the benefits of luxury real estate and private aviation
as never before. Under the terms of the agreement Marquis Jet Cards will
be included with the purchase of select Sea Island Properties providing
new Sea Island residential owners with all the benefits of Marquis Jet
Card ownership. The Marquis Jet Card provides the convenience, quality and
safety of NetJets 25 hours at a time. Packaging Marquis Jet Cards with select Sea Island properties is a highly
unique concept that provides unprecedented accessibility to the renowned
Sea Island resort. While the closest commercial airports in Jacksonville
and Savannah are an hour away from Sea Island, Marquis Jet Card owners
will fly directly into McKinnon St. Simons Island Airport, only minutes
away from the Mobil 5 Star, Lodge at Sea Island; The Cloister at Sea
Island; Sea Island’s exclusive real estate developments and some of the
very best golfing in the world.

Currently, the Sea Island Company is further developing their new Beach
and Ocean Club properties at The Cloister on Sea Island while continuing
the development of their exclusive residential development, Frederica, on
St Simons Island. A Marquis Jet Card will be packaged into the purchase of
select Sea Island properties.

“By offering access to the NetJets fleet, safety and world-class
service, the Marquis Jet Card program provides access to the absolute
pinnacle in private aviation,” said David Everett, President and Chief
Operating Officer of Sea Island. “Packaging Marquis Jet Cards with select
properties eliminates the only obstacle for people purchasing or visiting
Sea Island. We are thrilled to have formed this partnership with Marquis

“Sea Island Resorts is a company that offers the same gold standards as
the Marquis Jet Card program,” said Ken Austin, executive vice president
of Marquis Jet. “The Marquis Jet Card is the perfect solution to access
Sea Island from all directions, at all times. With just ten hours notice,
a NetJets aircraft will take a Marquis Jet Card Owner, their family and/or
business associates from anywhere in the continental U.S. to this
spectacular family friendly resort and community.”
