In a busy year, XOJET has revamped its jet card program, opened a new sales office in Palm Beach, expanded lifestyle partnerships and continued fleet refurbishments
XOJET announced heightened investments in safety, flight standards and training as a response to a surge in business during 2017. In a press released, the company said it has appointed Daniel Ramirez, formerly at Embraer Aircraft Corporation, as its new director of safety. It said driven by a 13% increase in new membership programs under its newly-minted XOJET Access Solutions, which launched earlier this year, the company has doubled the size and reach of its Flight Standards Department and executed the on-demand private aviation industry’s first Line Operations Safety Assessment (LOSA). XOJET is the first Part 135 operator to conduct this rigorous program, which strengthens the company’s already robust set of safety protocols.
Jet Linx offers guaranteed availability and guaranteed hourly rates for its jet card programs
One of the key selling points for Jet Linx Aviation’s jet card program is the private terminals it operates at 14 different locations in the Midwest, Southwest and Southeast. Instead of transiting through FBOs, Jet Linx jet card customers access a dedicated Jet Linx terminal lounge. There is a valet and their car is detailed while they are away. It is returned waiting with air conditioning or heating as appropriate. When members step into the lounge, they find their favorite spirits and snacks available. In a high-touch industry, Jet Linx goes a step further.

Winter in North America means ski weekends, and to many western resorts flying by private jet will save you major time versus needing to change in airline hubs, switching to the regional jets airlines use to serve many of these destinations. The problem with flying commercially to these places is that when there are cancellations, often you can’t get new seats for days due to the low capacity aircraft they use on these routes.
