The new-member offer reduces hourly rates on its Embraer Phenom 300 fleet to $5,795 during the first six months
JetSuite, which last year added five Embraer Phenom 300s, is now offering new members in seven Southwestern U.S. states significantly reduced hourly rates as low as $5,795, which is up to 15% off normal pricing.
Regular program rates range from $6,375 to $6,776 per hour, excluding 7.5% FET, based on deposit tiers ranging from $100,000 to $500,000.
To get the reduced rates, customers still join its SuiteKey jet card program at the existing levels.
During your first six months, you then get lower hourly rates for flights within Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, and Utah.
For flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, the hourly rate drops to $5,795 per hour plus 7.5% Federal Excise Tax. Flights on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays are billed at $5,995 per hour.
The offer is valid to new members who join by March 31, 2020.
JetSuite president Stephanie Chung tells Private Jet Card Comparisons that while the operator has a national customer base, its heaviest concentration of patrons is located in the states that are part of this program.
According to data from Argus Traqpak, JetSuite’s fleet averages over 900 flight hours per year. That’s nearly double the average – 491 hours – for the top 25 Part 135 charter operators. Only XOJET has higher utilization.
Executive Level (100k) SuiteKey members will also now get dedicated account managers previously only offered to higher tier members.
Chung said the promo was developed after a recent analysis of the company’s flying. It showed most of its customers are based and fly within that area, for both business and to second homes.
She said JetSuite is planning several more announcements in the coming weeks. Last year, Chung said the company plans to expand with larger aircraft.
JSX expands flights in the West
Its sister, JSX, which offers scheduled flights between private aviation terminals on 30-seat Embraer 135s and 145s has been expanding rapidly in the west, adding Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, and Reno in recent months.
The by-the-seat service enables users to cut total trip time in half by reducing the time spent at the airport.
