The answer is sometimes, and yes you can save money, but you need to be flexible
By various estimates, 30% to 50% of the private jet charter fleet flies empty. Why? Unlike airlines which schedule aircraft and then sell seats knowing at all times where planes are supposed to be and how many people are booked to be flying, in private aviation, the jets are waiting to go and pick up passengers willing to pay as much as $15,000 per hour to fly in them. In terms of structure, it’s as different as chalk and cheese.

Pushed by what founder and CEO Tom Filippini says is strong demand in its first year of operations, Denver-based jet card seller StraightLine Private Air is making a few changes to its programs, including adding a $200,000 tier. Filippini, who didn’t want to disclose the number of members, says interest in the company is based on its somewhat different approach. The provider has also joined the fray with an end of the year offer: Join by December 31 and receive a 5% bonus up to $10,000.

One of the key selling points for Jet Linx Aviation’s jet card program is the private terminals it operates at 14 different locations in the Midwest, Southwest and Southeast. Instead of transiting through FBOs, Jet Linx jet card customers access a dedicated Jet Linx terminal lounge. There is a valet and their car is detailed while they are away. It is returned waiting with air conditioning or heating as appropriate. When members step into the lounge, they find their favorite spirits and snacks available. In a high-touch industry, Jet Linx goes a step further.
