The future of Jet Cards: You can’t always get what you want

Barbarians at the Gate

Jet cards 2.0: As Mick Jagger advises, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need”

Barring some calamity that sends demand for private jet travel into a downward spiral, jet cards and memberships will look very different. You already see the ghost of jet cards’ future via recent changes.

2. Jet Card Product Overview and Pricing

Data for all of the jet card products offered by 50+ companies covered in a single spreadsheet

Compare jet cards by type of pricing used, cabin size, specific aircraft options, minimum seat guarantees, and more. Our exclusive QUICK COMPARE FLIGHT PRICING calculator enables you to compare flight pricing head-to-head for peak day and non-peak travel.

Our flight pricing tool considers published rates, taxes, peak day surcharges, daily minimum, taxi time, deicing expense, and fuel surcharges. It even amortizes membership fees into your flight cost, enabling you to understand what you will actually pay.

You can also compare program structure – how it’s sold – hours or deposit amount, as well as pay-as-you-go options. Also, see how the program sources its aircraft, age guarantees, fixed-rate service areas, destinations subject to surcharges, and surcharge amounts. Find out why you should subscribe.
