Directional Aviation’s on-demand private jet charter broker PrivateFly is again partnering with Casa Kimberly, a luxury boutique hotel built from Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s longtime home in Puerto Vallarta.
The itinerary includes round-trip private jet flights to Puerto Vallarta via PrivateFly; a three-night stay in the Elizabeth Taylor Suite at Casa Kimberly; a sunset champagne sail; spa treatments for two; five-star dining experiences and more.
The jet card broker is launching fixed-rate, guaranteed availability between the U.S. and Europe
U.K.-based charter broker Air Partner will announce later today it has signed up six charter operators who will provide more than 50 long-range private jets for new fixed-rate, guaranteed availability jet card pricing between the U.S. and Europe.
With a buy-in starting at just 10 hours, and the ability to refund unused funds, the new offering is likely to have a wide appeal for its target market, particularly travelers who want set pricing but don’t fly enough to make multi-year commitments to key competitors for the route such as NetJets, Flexjet and Vistajet.
The new cross the pond rates connect Air Partner’s existing fixed-rate, guaranteed availability primary service areas for its jet card customers covering the U.S., Caribbean, and Europe. Air Partner is one of the few jet card programs offering fixed rates for flights within both the U.S and Europe.
“Over the past few years, we’ve noticed increasing demand
for an improved transatlantic option to better connect our clients in the
United States with Europe,” said David McCown, president of Air Partner U.S.
“We’re dedicated to continuously creating innovative travel solutions to best
serve our customers, and we are pleased to today become the first jet
membership program to offer a fixed Trans-Atlantic rate.”
Transatlantic jet card pricing
Beyond a cost of $15,650 per hour with a seven-hour segment minimum, there is a 15% roundtrip discount based on an average of at least four flight hours per day.
Global jet card and charter operator VistaJet said it has
seen a 104% increase in the number of animals flown in the past two years
As previously reported by Private Jet Card Comparisons, VistaJet today previewed a new program to provide VIP services for your pets.
It is the latest in a series of announcements over the past year with specialized programs for children, fine dining and oenophiles. VistaJet, which operates super midsize, large cabin and ultra-long-range Bombardier private jets is the only jet card program with a global primary service area that provides one-way rates without ferry fees.
Crystal has been known for its award-winning luxury cruise ships, however, since its purchase by Genting Hong Kong it has been expanding into aviation with its upcoming Boeing 777-200LR customized with just 84 flat bed seats, a lounge and bar area, plus wine cellar. Right now its Crystal Luxury Air division is offering its large-cabin Bombardier Global Express XRS (N989SF) with a passenger capacity of 13 at an hourly rate of around $7,500.
