Upstart Alliance Aviation says it will announce its first order for new private jets in May, with the first delivery scheduled for January 2023
Alliance Aviation, which was launched by former Dumont executives in 2019, will announce its first order of new private jets next month.
The news of the pending order came in an email to prospects reviewed by Private Jet Card Comparisons. The email offers 100 jet card blocks of $250,000 to be used starting in March of 2023.
Buyers get a free three-hour Gulfstream GIV flight to use right away. They also get a 5% discount on immediate card purchases.
Alliance President and Co-Founder Christopher Tasca confirmed the company’s order of new private jets. He said it would include up to 20 units, including midsize and super-midsize aircraft.
Alliance ranked 18th in 2021 among fractional and charter operators.
The news comes a day after FlyExclusive placed its first order for new jets. It signed up for up to 30 Citation CJ3+ light jets for Textron. The company says it will add an order for midsize Citation XLS jets by year’s end.
Tasca declined to specify the OEM, except to say the order will be placed with a single manufacturer.
Alliance had been selling shares in pre-owned aircraft. Its fleet includes three Global Express, nine GIV-SPs, three Challenger 604s, and a trio of Hawker 800XPs.
Tasca said there is a pool of prospects who wanted access to new jets he will now be able to tap. The company has 165 active jet card members, which he expects to double.
