Jettly sues Verijet after alleged cancelations without refunds

Verijet is being hit with a pair of lawsuits after Jettly says it canceled clients flights but didn’t refund monies it was paid.

Jet card and on-demand charter platform Jettly filed two lawsuits against Cirrus Vision Jet operator Verijet.

The dual filings allege that after paying Verijet $8,000 for each trip, the operator canceled the flights but failed to provide a refund.

Each filing in Osceola County, Florida, states, “Despite the binding agreement and payment, Verijet failed to perform and complete the agreed services. Specifically, Verijet cancelled two flights at the last minute to the detriment of Jettly. As a result, Jettly suffered damages because of Verijet’s breach of contract.

In January, we reported that Verijet faced multiple lawsuits for aircraft lessors.

The 2020 start-up responded with a lawsuit accusing a former board member of plotting a bankruptcy takeover.

In November, Founder Richard Kane returned to the CEO role, claiming he had secured $85 million in financing.

Earlier this year, Kane said he had just three SF50 aircraft flying simultaneously, down from a peak of 23 aircraft.

In 2023, Verijet jumped to the 13th spot from 30th on our list of largest charter/fractional operators in the U.S.

Kane tells Private Jet Card Comparisons he had yet to see the filings.

However, he adds there are now six aircraft on its charter certificate with a term sheet for 20 more.
