Previously jet card members had to pay a surcharge to ensure WiFi on their flights
Gold level members of Airstream Jets’ Distance Card will now have guaranteed WiFi. It’s applicable when they book midsize, super-midsize and large cabin private jets. Previously there was a 5% surcharge.
The jet card broker uses miles instead of minutes to price jet card flights and it translates well to its new app
There’s innovation, and then there’s innovation that truly provides tangible benefits.
The Distance Card from Airstream Jets has always fallen into the latter in my opinion.
While jet cards make flying easy, figuring out pricing is anything but. Yes, in most cases you know your one-way rate, meaning you don’t have to worry about repositioning fees.
And yes, it’s articulated in hours. But is it actual flight time, or is it estimated flight time?
And then with actual flight time, you don’t truly know how much the flight cost you until after you landed.
The Airstream Jets Distance Card program uses a mileage-based formula, instead of hours
Florida-based Airstream Jets is offering discounts and upgrades for buyers of its jet card program, but the offer is very short term, ending April 17, 2018. The Distance Card uses a mileage-based formula to calculate trip costs eschewing the standard hourly formula used by programs that offer fixed one-way pricing.
The Florida-based Jet Card seller calculates flight charges by the mile instead of the hour
Airstream Jets, which sells Jet Cards charging by the mile, instead of the hour, is offering $750 off Silver Distance Card and $4,000 off a Gold Distance Card through February 14, 2018. The savings represent a 4% discount from the regular buy-in prices of $25,000 and $100,000 respectively.
