The Distance Card is the only jet card program that prices flights by mileage instead of hours
Airstream Jets has added Austin Bergstrom International Airport and Houston William P. Hobby Airport as hubs for its Distance Card jet card members alongside Dallas Love Field giving the Lone Star state three hubs. Cardmembers who originate and terminate their trips at any program hubs receive a 5% discount. Distance Cards are sold at $25,000 or $100,000, plus 7.5% Federal Excise Tax in both cases.
