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

contracts across the nine offices and saw revenue of more than $250 million.”
