After guaranteeing Wifi on super mids last year, Sentient is expanding connectivity
The jet card inventor will launch transatlantic fixed one-way pricing with guaranteed availability
Aircraft specific jet cards are coming in 2020
Directional Aviation’s jet card provider Sentient Jet is celebrating its 20th anniversary. And it has some of its most significant program changes.
In an interview with Private Jet Card Comparisons during Corporate Jet Investor in Miami, CEO Andrew Collins outlined several key updates.
Top of the list is expanding guaranteed Wifi, fixed rates and guaranteed availability for transatlantic flights, and aircraft specific programs.
One thing you probably won’t be seeing from Sentient is jet sharing, according to Collins.
RISE is targeting fliers traveling privately 15 hours per year
Vista Global has also dropped references to JetSmarter in its XO branding
XO, which was formed by the merger of JetSmarter and XOJET, is making more tweaks to its membership offerings.
The biggest is the launch of RISE, a new tier targeting private travelers who fly less 15 hours per year.
It is priced at $595 and joins Select Access, Signature Access and Elite Access in the XO line-up membership line-up.
In a press release, the company said, “RISE makes private
aviation more accessible and valuable for those who seek to use it more
frequently – or have never experienced it – as well as those who fly private
regularly, but are not
getting the elevated service, flexibility and quality aircraft they deserve.”
The U.K.-based charter and jet card broker said its Americas offices have surpassed the $250 million mark in sales
Air Charter Service said it has expanded its U.S.
headquarters to more than 20,000 square feet, double its previous space.
Richard Thompson, its president for the Americas, said in a
press release, “Last year ACS Americas arranged just shy of 6,000 charter
contracts across the nine offices and saw revenue of more than $250 million.”
The jet card broker has reduced light jet minimums and is launching fixed-rate, guaranteed availability for transatlantic flights
Private Jet Services (PJS) said it has introduced a series of enhancements to its jet card membership program effective immediately. The changes include lower daily minimums, a choice of how you want to be billed for your flight time, and Wifi guarantee on super-midsize and large-cabin jets.
Its jet card continues without membership fees or blackouts and allows clients to upgrade or downgrade cabin size of their jet at published rates without an interchange fee. Lead time for booking remains at 10 hours on non-peak days.
