While the number of jet cards providers and programs has doubled since the Great Recession, comparing pricing head-to-head used to be difficult…until now
Jet cards are soaring literally with the number of providers and programs more than doubling since the Great Recession. A key tool in the portfolio of private aviation users, jet card membership programs fit snuggly between full and fractional ownership on one side and on-demand charter on the other.
Wholesale Jet Club, which offers both traditional guaranteed availability, fixed-rate jet cards plus a fixed mark-up on-demand charter membership, is getting in on the Black Friday action offering 50% off a one-month membership ($750). You can also buy an annual membership at 20% off ($9,600 for the entire year as opposed to the regular $12,000 price). The offer expires November 26, 2018. Wholesale provides operator pricing with a 3.5% administrative fee.
The jet card broker already offers discounts for roundtrips, hub flights and booking charter flights in advance
Florida-based Airstream Jets which uses a mileage-based model instead of hours for charging clients has added a new Flex Option Discount for its jet card members. Cardholders with flexible travel dates plus or minus one day who select the option will receive a 5% discount on any one-way trip. A seven day lead time is required. Final travel date will be determined no later than 48 hours prior to scheduled departure.
