Jet Card Membership programs provide a variety of benefits that are making them more and more popular

 

Jet cards usually fall between on-demand charter and fractional ownership in the hierarchy of private aviation options. While most jet cards have a minimum of 25 hours or $100,000 of flight time, more and more there are jet cards and membership programs starting at 10 hours or $50,000.

 

It’s estimated 35-50% of jet card users have multiple private aviation solutions. Some of you own private jets but need a jet card for family members. Some of you fly on a corporate jet for work but need a jet card for personal trips. You might own a Light Jet but need to start flying longer missions with more people, so you buy a jet card. Many of you are just looking for an easy and efficient flight solution.

Here are the top 10 reasons to buy a jet card from Private Jet Card Comparisons:

 

  1. You don’t have the long-term commitment of fractional ownership
