With demand staying at record levels and continued supply chain issues, jet card providers have been lengthening the lead time required to book private jets. For those of you who need to fly on short notice, these companies still have non-peak call-outs of 24 hours or less.
There used to be a number of programs that would let you book a private jet with fixed rates and guaranteed availability at 14 hours or less.
In fact, at the beginning of 2021, according to Private Jet Card Comparisons, 17 providers had programs with non-peak call-outs of 14 hours or less. Now, there is just one.
An additional 17 providers were at 24 hours, meaning there were 34 North American jet card providers at the window. Today, that’s down to 10.
The average lead time to book fixed or capped hourly rates increased to 62.2 hours, up 11% from the end of 2021.
If you need to go on quickly, with guaranteed availability and fixed rates without a premium, JetSet Group offers 12 hours’ non-peak lead time for bookings.
Another boutique provider, Amalfi Jets is at 18 hours.
Air Charter Service, Alliance Aviation, Jet Token, NetJets, Nicholas Air, Northern Jet Management, Sentient Jet, and VistaJet all offer guaranteed jets with 24 hours of notice.
