The U.K. private jet charter broker says capped rate jet cards now account for 40% membership sales
Air Charter Service, which sells jet card programs with both U.S. and European service areas, reports its capped rate jet cards now account for 40% of jet card sales. The capped rate product was launched in August 2018.
In a press release, Tim Rees, ACS’s jet card manager, commented, “It’s easy to see the appeal of the Capped Rate Jet Card scheme. It allows clients to budget for the year by giving them a fixed rate, capped price, but allows them to benefit from market prices at the time of booking which generally saves the customer money.”

contracts across the nine offices and saw revenue of more than $250 million.”
