Boston-based jet card broker Magellan jets has swapped the CJ3 and CJ4 from the Hawker 400XP and Challenger 604/605 series from the Falcon 2000 in its jet card line-up
Magellan Jets is revamping its line-up of semi-specific jet cards. The move is designed to focus its jet card line-up around Cessna’s Citation, Bombardier, and Gulfstream aircraft.
“We see customers want a more consistent experience. NetJets have proved that customers want newer and nicer aircraft. And we see that too,” Magellan’s president Anthony Tivnan tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.
Moving the Citation CJ3 and CJ4 into the Hawker 400XP’s entry-level spot gives newer aircraft more range. It also provides a natural progression to the Citation Excel/XLS as an entry-level midsize aircraft and the Citation X super-midsize.
“It gives us a consistent portfolio of the most popular aircraft and the ones our customers have told us they want,” Tivnan says.
Magellan Jets offers two pay-as-you-go membership options based on aircraft age. Tivnan says 40% of customers are paying more for its premium option. That helped convince the company to refocus its jet card offerings.
