Our Sister Companies:
Northern Jet Management is one part of an innovative aviation business trio that services the business and personal travel industry. Headquartered at Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Northern Jet Management manages a fleet of 10 jet aircraft, which are used for both fractional ownership programs and on-demand executive charter.
The Company Jet is the fractional ownership division which utilizes aircraft that are managed and operated by Northern Jet Management. The Company Jet fractional ownership program focuses exclusively on business and business travelers.
We believe commercial air travel no longer serves the needs of business. Only long-standing inertia or lack of information keeps business leaders from abandoning the big airlines altogether.
We offer unique benefits and an extremely compelling business model for fractional ownership. We encourage you to get the facts and crunch the numbers. At the end of the day, we think you’ll arrive at the inescapable conclusion that ours is a far better way to travel and do business – not just in light of traditional commercial air travel, but compared to any other fractional ownership company in business today.
