Private jet charter broker and management company FlyUSA has launched the Ascend Club.

The new private jet membership programs use dynamic pricing.

There are two levels – Gold and Platinum.

Gold has a higher membership fee but doesn’t require a deposit.

The Platinum level requires $100,000 with unused funds refundable.

Both levels receive a 2% cash-back rebate and a $1,000-per-flight discount at the time of booking.

Platinum members get preferred booking and cancelation terms plus a $250 per flight catering or transportation credit.

“Our company and operations are growing. Our objective was to craft a membership program with distinct benefits that demonstrates that we understand our clients and what is important to them,” says Barry Shevlin, Co-Founder and CEO.

He added, “A key differentiator is the 2% cash back that rewards customers for being loyal. While other programs keep clients at various tiers based on the size of their deposit, our program pays clients back.”

An interview in local media pegged 2023 revenues at $27 million.

FlyUSA’s management arm currently has 20 aircraft, according to the company.
