DashJet folded into Exec 1 Aviation

The light jet operator has decided to continue its jet card business under a single brand

Exec 1 Aviation, which just last year launched DashJet as a brokerage arm, has now folded it under the mother brand. The move, which took place in March was driven by litigation threats from a major aviation company that was using the Dash brand for cargo, as well as a branding decision.

“Everything that DashJet was doing now exists under Exec 1 Aviation,” says Katherine Forst, director of customer engagement.

These three companies will build a jet card based on your needs

The custom jet card is here. Air Charter Services, DashJet, and Prive Jets have all launched programs that enable you to tailor a jet card to your specific needs


As the number of jet card programs and providers continues to expand because they cards bridge the gap between on-demand charter and full or fractional ownership, the category continues to see healthy innovation. This year three providers – Air Charter Service, DashJet and Prive Jets – have each launched customized jet cards both providing guaranteed availability and fixed one-way rates based on your travel specs.
