Flexjet's Top 8 Most Popular Destinations for President's Day Weekend 2017
The days surrounding this popular winter travel holiday weekend rank closely behind Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year's as one of the top travel periods for Flexjet. Looking at President's Day through a private jet travel lens offers a unique perspective on how America's ultra-high-net-worth individuals escape winter's icy grasp. Ski and sun destinations generally compete for the preferences of fractional private jet Owners during this time of year.

“Every year, we see a huge amount of demand in the days leading up to and after the President's Day weekend. The timing is perfect for a quick getaway midway through the business year's hectic first quarter not to mention a break in the spring semester for many schools,” according to Megan Wolf, Flexjet's Vice President of Owner Experience. “The recent bout of winter storms in the northeast, where we have a very high concentration of Owners, will likely spur even heavier travel demand this year. Depending on their preferences, when people wake up to snow in their backyard, they are more apt to head to a location where they can put that powder to good use, or escape it altogether. We can get them there with as little as ten hours' notice.”

Of the ski destinations on the list, locations such as Sun Valley Idaho and Aspen, with their plentiful winter recreation options and secluded settings, reached most easily by private jet, are the most popular among Flexjet Owners this year. For those looking for relief from winter weather, traditional hot spots such as Palm Beach and Naples, Florida are perennial favorites. Southern California and Las Vegas are also high on this year's list.
