World No.2 Roger Federer arrived in the early hours of the morning on a NetJets aircraft with his fellow Team Europe teammates touching down late last night to begin their campaign to win the second Laver Cup at the United Center this week.
With tennis players travelling the globe week in, week out, how they arrive at tournament is just as important as when.
A fast jet, a spacious, serene environment, impeccable safety record, flexible dietary options and room to accommodate selected members of the extended player team (including pets) … all are highly valued services when today’s elite sports stars take to the skies.
Federer, winner of 20 Grand Slams, who spearheaded Team Europe’s victory at the inaugural Laver Cup in Prague last year, says NetJets is part of his winning formula.
Federer boarded a NetJets aircraft Austin, Texas, and is one of a growing number of top athletes in tennis, golf and motorsports who rely on NetJets’ personalized service to accommodate ever-changing timetables to safely move from one tarmac to another across the world.
“With hectic schedules that take them around the world, all professional athletes push their bodies and minds to the extreme,” says NetJets EVP Sales & Marketing, Pat Gallagher.
“With the finest fleet at their command, and several types of jet to choose from, these world-class players can singularly focus on their game.”
But you don’t have to be Roger Federer to fly like the world’s most successful and seriously talented champions of the world.
NetJets has made it possible for people and businesses around the globe to share ownership of a jet and gain access to the world’s largest fleet of private aircraft for a fraction of the cost and commitment of buying your own aircraft.
At short notice, Owners can book a flight online, via an app or through the NetJets Owner Services team, with access to 3,200 airports in more than 150 countries. No queuing, no hassles.
“Some of the most distinguished minds in business, real estate and technology, as well as performers and athletes are NetJets Owners,” says Gallagher.
“These are people who understand that some of the most important meetings and decisions happen at 41,000 ft.”
This week in Chicago however, all decisions will be made over a net.
The Laver Cup 2018 players are now well and truly grounded, looking to fly high when the first ball is struck in competition on Friday.
