Over 50% of private jet flight hours sold since the beginning of April were to new customers
Jet card leader Sentient Jet today offered more evidence that private jet travel is set to get a boost from first-timers.
The unit of Directional Aviation’s OneSky Flight said over 50% of the more than 5,000 private jet flight hours it sold since the beginning of April were to first-time customers. Private Jet Card Comparisons estimates that equates to around $15 million in purchases from new members.
