PrivatAir’s insolvency marks another ‘good times’ private aviation blackeye and reminds buyers they need to research the stability of providers
Yes, it’s another ‘good times’ private aviation hiccup in what has been described as the peak of the segment’s 10-year recovery. “Any Jet, Anywhere, Any time” reads the on-demand private jet charter page of the Swiss and German private jet management company PrivatAir which said it has filed for insolvency today.
OK, the headline says it all. For new customers who buy either Sentient’s SJ25+ 25-hour wifi guaranteed super-midsize jet card or 25 hours on a large cabin jet, you’ll get an extra complimentary hour, so a 4% bonus. You’ll also get a $2,500 Neiman Marcus card if you act before December 10, 2018. Additionally, there is a six-month bonus price lock in addition to Sentient’s normal 12-month lock which means your hourly rate won’t increase during that period.
The high-end jet card provider has refined wine selections for its guests and is now offering a comprehensive fine wine program for members
After launching live in-flight entertainment programming for kids earlier this year – yes, we’re talking about those Alice in Wonderland themed tea parties – VistaJet has turned its attention to the adults in the room with the debut of the VistaJet Wine Program which will be announced later today. The program is being driven by VistaJet founder, chairman and wine enthusiast Thomas Flohr has led the charge in curating wine selections specifically for their ability to perform well at altitude. The company says, “VistaJet now has the most intelligent and luxurious wine program of its kind to ever exist in air travel.”
