Surf Air has been in the news regularly this year, acquiring RISE in Texas, then launching its operations in Europe, its first jet service using the Embraer Phenom 300 in addition to its core fleet of Pilatus PC-12s. Last month the company moved its London base from Luton Airport to London City Airport.


Accepting Bitcoin has been on trend recently for private aviation companies. Jet card seller Star Jets International recently announced it would accept the cryptocurrency. Finding new ways to sell private jet travel, particularly jet cards and memberships have been at the forefront. ECOJETS in September started selling jet cards on Amazon.
