Orlando, Florida-based on-demand and jet card broker Stratos Jet Charters is streamlining its membership program.

The first move is to offer a single full-year membership option.

Previously, Stratos offered a six-month membership.

However, President & CEO Joel Thomas tells Private Jet Card Comparisons that the full-year program was selling at the end of the day, and the shorter option wasn’t.

The broker initially launched its first guaranteed fixed rate program in early 2022.

Additionally, Stratos is reducing rates, blackout dates, and peak days.

Based on the aircraft category, guaranteed hourly rates are dropping from 2.5% to 6.7%.

Jet card rates are up 19.9% since the end of 2019.

Blackout days, when members cannot use the contract, fixed rates fall from 28 dates to just four.

Peak days are reduced by 31%.

Stratos offers five different fixed-rate category options, including two light jet options.

The Soar Higher program offers Light Jets and Super Light Jets.

Light Jets include the Citation CJ2, CJ3, and CJ4, Hawker 400XP, Learjet 31, Citation V, and Citation Bravo, among others.

The Super Light Jets category features the Phenom 300, and then aircraft other providers typically include in their midsize category, such as the Citation Excel, XLS, and Learjet 45XR.

Stratos Jet Charters Midsize category features the Hawker 800XP, Learjet 60, Learjet 75, Gulfstream G100, and G150 as examples.
