Alliance Aviation, the start-up founded by former Dumont Aviation executives, has launched a new jet card offering.
The CARES Pay-As-You-Go Jet Card requires a non-refundable $50,000 deposit. For the first 25 hours, you pay $2,995 per hour on a light jet. For hours 26 to 50, you then pay $3,995 per hour. Aircraft include Hawker 400XPs or larger.
Upgrades for a medium jet are available for an additional $995 per hour and large cabin aircraft come for a surcharge of $2,995 per hour.
During the first 25 hours, the program confers the following hourly rates without excluding the joining fee:

If you plan to fly 50 hours, your hourly rates for hours 26 to 50 are:

Rules of the program are the same as existing jet cards. That means just eight hours lead-time for reservations, except on 21 peak days, and 90 minute daily minimums.
There is a 10% surcharge for Caribbean and Mexico flights. Alliance is one of the few jet cards to include Hawaii or Alaska in the fixed-one-way rate service area. There is a 25% surcharge.
Peak days and flights outside of the Continental U.S. require a 168 hours advance booking.
