Yes, there is another jet card provider. Jet cards fill the gap between on-demand charter and full or fractional ownership, and in many cases provide supplemental lift for users who already have private aviation solutions. Perhaps surprisingly it has taken awhile for turboprops to gain their due in the jet card segment. Lower cost means lower profit margins, so many of the big names in jet cards don’t offer turboprop solutions. At the same time, Wheels Up, StraightLine Private Air, Nicholas Air, Luxury Aircraft Solutions and Concord Private Air among others now offer jet cards with turboprops.
