A legal battle is under way between the nation’s largest private aviation provider and two of the major FBO chains over whether NetJets’ aircraft charter and management arm, Executive Jet Management, can require the chains to provide fuel discounts to aircraft owners and operators whose aircraft are not part of the company’s fully managed fleet. In April, NetJets filed lawsuits against Landmark Aviation and Signature Flight Support in an attempt to force the two service providers to continue to offer contracted high-volume fuel discounts to corporate flight departments and other clients enrolled only in EJM’s Support Services program. The service providers say that because members of that program are not part of NetJets’ fully managed fleet, they are not eligible for such preferred pricing.
