The private jet charter broker has been the subject of several recent reports from financial analysts
Air Partner has been around since 1961 so we know it has some staying power. Plus, the British based private aviation company is interesting to Private Jet Card Comparisons for a couple reasons. First of all, in recent years it has been putting a bigger emphasis in growing its jet card business, and secondly, as a publicly traded company, there is significantly more financial information available than the many other providers that are privately held or a subsidiary. We also like its 10-hour lead time for reservations is near the top of the league and the entry point is only $53,000. You can withdraw your funds at any time, but there is no escrow account, which means taking a closer look at financials makes sense.
While many private jet companies are investing and promoting apps where customers can request and book private jet charters or book flights in jet card programs, the CEO of Air Partner says people do a better job than technology.
U.K.-based Air Partner which sells jet cards on both sides of the Atlantic is reporting a 38.6% increase in profits thanks to what it describes as “booming demand” for its jet card product.
Yacht broker Camper & Nicholsons International is teaming with the private jet card and on-demand air charter broker Air Partner to market their services to each other’s customers and also create “seamless and integrated travel” programs, according to a press release.
NetJets and its Marquis Jet Card is the most searched private jet card provider, according to PrivateJetCardComparisons.com one-week after the website’s pre-launch. Founder and Editor-in-Chief Doug Gollan said NetJets was followed by Air Partner, Wheels Up, Delta Private Jet and Flexjet rounding out the five company pages readers visited most often.
“When we created Private Jet Card Comparisons we saw a need in the market. Only 3% of jet card buyers use a consultant, and there was no other independent guide that offered comprehensive head-to-head comparisons in an easy-to-use spreadsheet format,” said Gollan. “Most of the time selecting a jet card or prepaid charter program came down to the recommendation of a friend, a previous experience or having an assistant do a Google search looking for a couple companies.”
