Exec 1 Aviation scales back jet card program; cuts rates

Hawker 400XP

The floating fleet light jet operator has eliminated fixed rates for midsize, super-midsize, and large cabin jet cards

Ankeny, Iowa-based light jet operator Exec 1 Aviation has revamped its jet card program focusing on wholesale customers amid surging demand.

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.
