Airshare offers 20% jet card, fractional bonus, realigns PSA

Fractional and jet card customers receive extra days from Airshare and can fly in an expanded PSA.

Airshare is offering a 20% bonus for new jet cards and fractional customers.

The limited-time offer doesn’t have a specific expiration date, CMO Andy Tretiak tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.

However, it is based on available inventory.

The offer was made via an email to prospects last week.

Tretiak says the promotion provides extra flight days.

Airshare is a days-based program.

Jet card buyers get 12 days instead of 10 to use over 24 months.

One-sixteenth fractional buyers would get 24 days instead of 20 in the first year only.

The offer applies to both its Phenom 300 and Challenger 3500 aircraft.

Airshare expands PSA

Separately, Airshare is now using a statewide approach to its Primary Service Area.

Previously, the PSA included flights departing or arriving within 120 nautical miles of Jacksonville, Naples, and Palm Beach, Florida; Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Fort Worth, and Dallas, Texas; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Oklahoma; Kansas City and Wichita, Kansas; Denver, Colorado; St. Louis, Missouri; Chicago, Illinois; Indianapolis, Indianapolis, and Buffalo, New York.

Last week, Airshare announced it added Arkansas, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.

However, the statewide approach now includes all of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio, and Florida in the PSA.

That means there are no repositioning charges for flights that begin or end in Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.

Additionally, there are now preset repositioning charges for flights wholly outside of the PSA.

For example, a flight starting or ending in Iowa but not starting or ending in the PSA entails a one-half-hour repositioning.

New Mexico carries a one-hour repositioning charge on the same basis.

So, a flight from Iowa to New Mexico would carry a one-half-hour repositioning fee, the lesser of the two amounts.

Tretiak noted that Airshare’s days-based approach means customers can double their hours over a traditional hours-based program.

For example, a 1/16th-share fractional customer flying five hours on their days could fly 100 per year (five hours x 20 days), the same as a 1/8th-share with a traditional program.

Tretiak called the current promotion “an exceptional value.”

Airshare has been expanding its footprint at a more rapid rate after acquiring aircraft management from Wheels Up.
