The formal business entity specifics of companies that offer private jet card programs presents a very broad spectrum of operational models. From privately held organizations to owned subsidiaries. From nimble charter brokerage models to card program from fuller-service aviation organizations. From card programs that rely on the vast global network of charter aircraft and require fewer employees to card programs from companies that maintain their own private fleets of jets with the commensurate staff to operate and maintain them. From single HQ companies to organizations that operate multiple bases of operation. From companies involved in private aviation for decades to newer operations.
The resonance and relevance of the various operational approaches of private jet card companies is entirely dependent on your own attitudes and levels of comfort with private jet travel. You may be heartened by working with companies that are based relatively close-by, or geographical proximity may be a non-issue. A smart quick firm that arranges efficient solutions may hold more appeal than a larger operation that offers a broader and more-nuanced customer service situation. You may be impressed by a larger company with a raft of staffers, or the only people you care about when traveling by private jet are the rep at the other end of the phone and the pilot. A long successful track record may be an important requirement to you, or other factors may push your buttons harder.
While the primary focus of the profiled companies is to connect you with the right private jet for your trip, match your mission requirements, provide any desired amenities, and get you from point A to point B safely and within your required timeframe, the path leading to you stepping onboard can be as varied as the companies profiled. Efficiency, points of contact and corporate culture can all be as important a deciding factor as the type of jet or final trip costs to experiencing a reliably perfect private jet journey.
