Ad hoc charters can be a pain. Every trip calling a couple of brokers to get quotes, and then comparing the terms, including cancelation policies. And of course, it’s always, plus, plus, plus. And then what happens if there is the operator cancels because of a mechanical or sick pilot? Last-minute re-quotes can be expensive.

On the other hand, fractional ownership and leases give you guaranteed availability at one-way fixed rates so you don’t have to pay for repositioning flights. They also provide service recovery at operator expense. Of course, they require a three-to-five-year commitment, and monthly management fees even if you aren’t up in the air.

Enter jet cards, invented by the forerunner of Sentient Jet in 1999, and then popularized after the Great Recession, they combine the flexibility of on-demand charter and the benefits and service guarantees of fractional ownership. Some include deicing, and there are programs that have fixed rates globally.

In the U.S. alone, there are over 50 jet card providers. Some will even offer you multiple aircraft at the same time, making it like having your own flight department. Many allow you to upgrade or downgrade aircraft size for each mission, so you always have access to the right type of airplane for your needs.

Some act like debit cards, where you deposit funds that are drawn down after each flight. Others charge a membership to join, and then you pay-as-you-go.

Once you have a jet card, you can book your flights in seconds, often just with an email or text message.
