The jet card and charter broker joins NetJets with its UAE expansion push
Jet card and charter broker Air Partner said it has opened a new office in Dubai as it looks to extend its Middle East presence as it seeks continued organic growth.

The jet card broker is consolidating to have just one published program for each cabin size category – light, midsize, super-midsize, and large jet
U.K.-based private jet broker Air Partner, which offers fixed-rate, guaranteed availability jet cards for service areas in Europe, including the U.K., the Middle East, and North America, is phasing out its JetCard Sterling as a published offering.
The Sterling level program offers aircraft averaging 10 years old but didn’t guarantee the age of planes, so inventory included pre-2000 model private jets.
With the move, it will now offer singular pricing based exclusively on aircraft that meet its sourcing standards, instead of offering two levels of pricing, one for newer and the other for older jets.

Air Partner sells jet cards with fixed hourly rates that cover Europe, and North America, including the Caribbean and Mexico. During the summer, it introduced one-way transatlantic fixed rates starting with just a 10-hour commitment.
