NetJets unveiled its new
360-degree product portfolio at the European Business Aviation Convention
and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva.
On a media flight from London
Luton to Geneva, Seth Zlotkin
& John Odegard,
Managing Partners, QS Partners and
Gilles Marzuoli, Executive
Director, Executive Jet Management Europe reaffirmed the companies’ strong
performance over the past 12 months and talked through their upcoming plans
for the business in Europe.
Seth Zlotkin commented “with
the addition of QS Partners to the NetJets family, NetJets now delivers a
full 360-degree product lifecycle, from Charter and Jet Cards to Fractional
Ownership, Whole Aircraft Management and now Aircraft Brokerage in Europe.
Even though we are a new company, we have the resources, the expertise, the
capital strength, and the global presence of NetJets. Those four elements
set QS Partners apart from almost every other broker dealer.”
Both QS Partners and EJM
Europe are able to deliver solutions that take advantage of NetJets’ size
and expertise built up over 50 years of operations. No other Business
Aviation provider buys or divests of more aircraft than NetJets, while QS
Partners co-founders Seth Zlotkin and John Odegard bring a combined 25 years
of aviation sales experience.
This expertise, combined with
NetJets’ global network of resources, allows QS Partners to focus
exclusively on finding the best solution for each client, and offer a
valuable service that goes beyond what is traditionally offered by aircraft
brokerage services. A customer-centric service, the company is designed to
simplify the sometimes challenging and complex sales/purchase process
related to whole aircraft.

NetJets currently operates
over 700 aircraft worldwide and is the only private aviation business to
operate both its own and third party aircraft at such scale. The combined
purchasing power of NetJets & EJM Europe cultivates unmatched economies of
scale for Aircraft Owners on everything from jet fuel to aircraft parts,
crew travel and training.
Similarly, EJM Europe also
has the largest network of global providers which are audited yearly,
meaning clients never have to worry about finding the best services in a
specific location, or not being able to operate due to a lack of funds on
behalf of the operator.
Gilles Marzuoli added “QS
Partners are the perfect complement to the services offered by EJM Europe.
Our experience, infrastructure and resources coupled with bespoke
personalised account management allows us to deliver an aviation asset
management product that ensures complete peace of mind for our customers. We
look forward to working with QS Partners on bringing this exciting new 360
offering to the wider European market.”
