Marquis Jet Has Georgia on its Mind With Sea Island Company Partnership

The Premier Private Jet Card Program Allies with Leading Name In Luxury Resorts and Properties; New Partnership Offers Unprecedented Ease Of Access For Current And Future Sea Island Members and Guests

NEW YORK, June 1 /PRNewswire/ — Marquis Jet(SM), the global leader in private jet cards and The Sea Island Company, a 76-year-old Georgia-based resort and real estate development company, announced an unprecedented alliance coupling the benefits of luxury real estate and private aviation as never before. Under the terms of the agreement Marquis Jet Cards will be included with the purchase of select Sea Island Properties providing new Sea Island residential owners with all the benefits of Marquis Jet Card ownership. The Marquis Jet Card provides the convenience, quality and safety of NetJets 25 hours at a time.

Packaging Marquis Jet Cards with select Sea Island properties is a highly unique concept that provides unprecedented accessibility to the renowned Sea Island resort. While the closest commercial airports in Jacksonville and Savannah are an hour away from Sea Island, Marquis Jet Card owners will fly directly into McKinnon St. Simons Island Airport, only minutes away from the Mobil 5 Star, Lodge at Sea Island; The Cloister at Sea Island; Sea Island’s exclusive real estate developments and some of the very best golfing in the world.

Currently, the Sea Island Company is further developing their new Beach and Ocean Club properties at The Cloister on Sea Island while continuing the development of their exclusive residential development, Frederica, on St Simons Island. A Marquis Jet Card will be packaged into the purchase of select Sea Island properties.

“By offering access to the NetJets(R) fleet, safety and world-class service, the Marquis Jet Card program provides access to the absolute pinnacle in private aviation,” said David Everett, President and Chief Operating Officer of Sea Island. “Packaging Marquis Jet Cards with select properties eliminates the only obstacle for people purchasing or visiting Sea Island. We are thrilled to have formed this partnership with Marquis Jet.”

“Sea Island Resorts is a company that offers the same gold standards as the Marquis Jet Card program,” said Ken Austin, executive vice president of Marquis Jet. “The Marquis Jet Card is the perfect solution to access Sea Island from all directions, at all times. With just ten hours notice, a NetJets aircraft will take a Marquis Jet Card Owner, their family and/or business associates from anywhere in the continental U.S. to this spectacular family friendly resort and community.”

Additional elements of the partnership include:

* Existing Marquis Jet Card and NetJets(R) fractional aircraft owners
will receive the opportunity to experience Sea Island with an offer of
two complimentary nights at The Lodge at Sea Island or The Cloister at
Sea Island or two complimentary rounds of golf and two spa treatments.

* Sea Island will develop special events for Marquis Jet Card and
NetJets(R) fractional aircraft owners to experience Sea Island (events
to be announced and held during term of agreement).

* Existing Sea Island residents, who purchase a Marquis Jet Card for the
first time, will receive a Sea Island Gift Card courtesy of Marquis
Jet.

* Marquis Jet and Sea Island will create a co-branded jet card for all
Sea Island residents who purchase a qualified property. The co-branded
card will be featured in upcoming print advertising campaigns and joint
marketing programs.
