Bombardier Skyjet Honored in Robb Report 20th Annual 'Best of the Best' Issue

Bombardier Skyjet Recognized as an Exceptional Private Aviation Services Provider

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - June 19, 2008) - Bombardier Skyjet, the pioneer service for online booking of privately chartered business jets and provider of the Skyjet Card in North America, has been recognized by the premier luxury magazine -- Robb Report -- as one of the world's most exceptional flight service providers for 2008, in its annual "Best of the Best" issue. Skyjet was selected among five private aviation providers judged on their national or international scope, established reputation, financial stability and levels of service, reliability and safety.

"We were delighted to learn that Bombardier Skyjet was selected by Robb Report for its much-anticipated 'Best of the Best' issue," said Skyjet Managing Director Chris Milligan.

"With numerous jet card programs that have been introduced since Skyjet was founded in 1997, it is an honor to be singled out by Robb Report for this designation -- which underscores our longevity, reputation and ongoing commitment to service excellence," he noted.

Featured in the June 2008 issue of Robb Report, "Best of the Best" is the result of a year-long effort on the part of the magazine's editors and writers to identify the luxury world's most extraordinary products and services in 56 categories, offering expert reviews and evaluations.

This year, Skyjet added a new prepaid debit card option to its flagship jet card program, the Skyjet Card. All Skyjet card programs provide guaranteed availability with an advance reservation, guaranteed hourly rates, no added charges for repositioning and the assurance that all Skyjet network charter operators have successfully passed an on-site, third-party aviation audit.

"For 11 years, Skyjet has been dedicated to quality and innovation, and to providing an outstanding travel experience for our customers every time they fly," said Mr. Milligan. "We appreciate being recognized by Robb Report both in the past and in the current 2008 'Best of the Best' issue."
