Fly Alliance cuts non-peak callout to eight hours in 'return to normal'

After Magellan Jets cut non-peak callouts as low as 10 hours last week, Fly Alliance is moving to 8 hours.

Jet card provider Fly Alliance is cutting its non-peak jet card callout to eight hours, bringing it back to where it was before the Covid surge in demand forced companies to restructure their programs.

The new lower lead time to book flights applies to clients who purchase its jet card in increments of 25 hours or more.

It comes after Magellan Jets last week launched Magellan Business with callouts as low as 10 or 12 hours.

However, the rival program requires the purchaser to be a corporate entity and buy at least 100 hours annually.

‘I’ve been eager to reactivate guaranteed availability with eight hours’ notice or less for some time now,” Fly Alliance Co-Founder and President Chris Tasca tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.

He continues, “Our message to the consumer and our members remains unchanged: you should be flying with a provider who is not only an aircraft operator but has the experience to deliver on that guarantee. Fly Alliance is that provider, tested and proven.”

‘Return to Normal’

Tasca calls the now lowest callout for a guaranteed rate and availability jet card a “return to normal.”

Before the demand surge, there were around two dozen providers with non-peak callouts between six and 14 hours.

The Orlando and Providence, Rhode Island-based flight provider offers a hybrid of on-and-off fleet aircraft.

The 2019 start-up was ranked as the 18th-largest private jet operator through June, based on fractional and charter flight hours.

It offers guaranteed availability with a fixed-rate service area that extends to the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, and Alaska.

Light jet rates start at $6,495 per hour, plus a 7.5% Federal Excise Tax.

Fly Alliance Fractional Ownership

Additionally, it offers fractional ownership of new and preowned aircraft.

Earlier this year, it took delivery of its first Cessna Citation XLS Gen 2 from Textron.

Paid subscribers of Private Jet Card Comparisons can compare callouts and over 65 variables from more than 80 providers and 900 program options.
