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.
