Boston-based jet card and private jet charter broker Magellan Jets, which has in the past promoted jet cards for college tours, this holiday is suggesting giving private jet travel as the perfect stocking stuffer.

How safe is your private jet company?

Private jet safety

Magellan Jets has issued a white paper on what you should know about private aviation safety

Boston-based jet card and on-demand charter broker Magellan Jets has added to its library of educational white papers for private jet fliers with a white paper titled, “How Safe Is Your Private Aviation Company?”

For Flexjet, Hurricane Dorian continues

The long-running hurricane hit close to the heart as Flexjet helped owners evacuate their extended family from the Bahamas, and now helps with the recovery effort

Executing an operations plan before, during and after a hurricane is not out of the ordinary for most major fleet operators, and Flexjet, the second-largest seller of fractional shares is no exception. However, this time was a bit different, its chief operating officer Megan Wolf tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.

One of the nice things about having access to a private jet is being able to get to places that take more time if you are flying commercially, and so it was that a number Flexjet’s owners had homes in areas of the Bahamas that were hardest hit by Hurricane Dorian.

Vista Global’s XO is now offering empty legs to non-members

After the June merger of JetSmarter and XOJET, the new FlyXO.com has been tweaking the jet sharing part of its offering

Vista Global is continuing to put its stamp on its XO brand since merging JetSmarter and XOJET at the beginning of the summer. First, it added JetSmarter’s jet sharing functionality to the former XOJET dynamic jet card pricing memberships.

The move meant that XO Select and Signature memberships could all of a sudden share seats on flights they had booked with their deposits. Elite members who get fixed rates can’t share seats on those flights, but otherwise, get all the perks a JetSmarter member received.

XO also tweaked Select Access and non-member options. In essence, there are two versions of Select Access. But the big news is non-members can now book seats on at least some empty legs.
