NetJets is the largest operator of private jets in the world, but it doesn’t offer all of its aircraft types in jet cards. Which one is next?
NetJets has previously said the jet card flying accounts for about 20% of flights with its core business of fractional shares and leases taking up the lion’s share. Currently, it has five jet specific cards covering light, midsize, super midsize and large private jets, a combination card that enables buyers to split time between two types, a cross-country card and an Elite card, which includes FET and fuel surcharges in pricing. There are no turboprops in the NetJets fleet, but it has a number of aircraft not in the jet card programs.
The promotion was supposed to end yesterday but has been extended through the end of the month.
JetSmarter gave its members a few more days to get irked with the by-the-seat private jet travel club as it extended its promotion enabling non-members to book at member rates for the rest of the month. Last month JetSmarter announced for the first time non-members could buy seats on its scheduled private jet flights as well as start shared shuttles.
