Dumont Jets is promoting its Dumont Jet Card on its growing Dassault Falcon 2000 fleet with a free flight offer
Dumont Jets is promoting its Dassault Falcon 2000 Santos Jet Card program by offering a free demo flight up to five hours within the Continental U.S. After you take your flight, if you decide to purchase a 25-hour Falcon 2000 Jet Card, your flight is free. The rate is $9,000 per hour plus 7.5% Federal Excise Tax. If you aren’t completely satisfied with the Falcon 2000 after your flight, Dumont Jets will offer the flight at a 25% discount with no further commitment, so a $6,750 hourly rate for your test flight.
The Netflix style all-you-can-fly by-the-seat private flight membership seller had launched flights in Europe last year
Surf Air last week has retreated from Europe. It comes less than 18 months after it launched flights with a single Embraer Phenom 300 and the promise of additional aircraft, including the Pilatus PC-12. As part of the launch, Surf Air had recruited the former chairman of the British Airways – American Airlines transatlantic alliance Simon Talling-Smith and had enlisted Flairjet, the U.K. operator owned by Directional Aviation to operate its Phenom.
The fixed rate jet card program is the first from the on-demand charter broker and can cut travel time to the slopes by half, adding two extra days of skiing
For a guaranteed fixed price of €6000, groups can fly between London and Geneva in a six-seat Nextant 400XTi, any date or time they choose. Travelers will benefit be able to cut their travel time to the slopes by more than half compared to flying commercially. The fixed rate program runs December 1, 2018, through the end of February targeting the popular winter route for both business and leisure travelers. PrivateFly says it hopes by offering the fixed rate, it will draw first-time private fliers.
Figuring out the hourly cost of a jet card isn’t as straightforward as you might think
If you are looking to buy a jet card, chances are you start by comparing price, usually hourly rate. However, all hourly rates are not created equal. If you are shopping for a U.S. program, some jet card providers include the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax in the rates on their website and promotional literature while others don’t. It’s just one example of why it makes sense to make a detailed comparison.
