The move follows the departure of ProspAir director Christopher Tasca who set up a competing jet card brokerage
Dumont jet cards start at $125,000 for 25 hours on a light jet, plus 7.5 percent FET
There is more change, fallout or however you want to describe it possibly related to the recent C-suite changes at Dumont Aviation Group.
ProspAir Jet Charter was launched in 2016 as a Dumont subsidiary under Christopher Tasca who was previously director of aviation solutions with Magellan Jets.
ProspAir’s launch accompanied Dumont’s rapid growth from a seller of airplane parts into a rapidly growing charter operator fueled by the acquisition of more than two-dozen Dassault Falcon 2000 large-cabin jets being retired by NetJets.
Jet cards show their benefits as the local supply of private jets ran low, and on-demand charter customers faced skyrocketing prices
A jet card with fixed one-way rates and guaranteed availability can protect you from surge pricing when there is limited supply or high-demand
With Hurricane Dorian baring down, the local supply of private jets ran low in Florida. In other words, the many private jets available for charter had already headed out with passengers and as you might expect, there weren’t many people who wanted to come back into the path of a major hurricane.
On-demand charter customers were faced with skyrocketing prices, not from gouging but the cost as aircraft had to be ferried in for their flights.
It shows how jet cards can be an important part of your private aviation solutions portfolio, often proven whenever there are natural disasters, be they fires, floods, winter storms, family emergencies that require short-notice booking, or in the case of Dorian, hurricanes.
