Miami-based by-the-seat private jet membership Fleet Clubs says it is flying and at capacity. It had announced flights to Vail and Long Island.
However, Co-founder and CEO Bernard Schwartz declined to provide details, saying members don’t want media coverage of the venture.
“We achieved what we needed from the media,” Schwartz tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.
He says multiple clubs are running.
The first club was supposed to start flights in December 2022.
During a press event at Miami International Airport in April, Schwartz said the Miami-Vail club would be delayed and would start this month, in November.
Plans were for year-round service with two-to-three weekly flights during the peak winter season.
At the time, Schwartz said a club for flyers between Miami and Long Island, New York, was being pushed to Summer 2024.
Flight pricing MIA-EGE was $2,100 each way, with MIA-ISP priced at $1,250 per leg.
Packages were marketed beginning at $50,000.
Flights were to be provided on chartered Airbus A320s or Boeing 737s in an executive configuration.
Schwartz says Fleet Clubs is using multiple operators.
The club uses private aviation terminals, saving members time and hassles.
In October, a jet-sharing club, Roam Maui, canceled all future flights, according to a notice sent to members.
It operated flights from Seattle, San Jose, and Los Angeles to Maui.
Its website is currently offline.
39% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers say they are interested in shared flights and by-the-seat concepts.
