Over 1,000 private jets are expected to land in Minneapolis for Super Bowl LII and providers are rolling out the red carpet for their customers
Private Jet Card Comparisons, the only independent buyer’s guide to private jet membership card programs, announces the release of its 2018 analysis, which has been expanded to include more than 250 programs for private fliers to choose from. Recently referred to as “a modern-day online Kelley Blue Book for private jet cards,” by Barron’s, Private Jet Card Comparisons’ 2018 analysis now offers more than 65 different variables that are important for consumers to consider when looking for the jet card program that best fits their unique flying needs.
Delta Private Jets has launched Sky Access, a new online membership program that offers members unlimited access to empty leg flights in addition to a fixed hourly rate for regular on-demand private jet travel. Members of Sky Access are able to book empty legs giving them the entire aircraft, not having to share it with others. Membership is priced at $8,500 for the first year and renewal at $6,000.
Much of Delta Private Jets’ (DPJ) recent focus seemed to be around letting everyone know there was a strong connection with the mother ship, Delta Air Lines. While DPJ customers have long earned Medallion frequent flier status, a new feature allows members to use SkyMiles to buy jet cards. Since you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards points to SkyMiles, for people who run up millions of dollars in annual spending, it was a very interesting way to use what might sometimes seem like an insurmountable pile of points.
