Does JetSmarter take American Express? It should be a simple yes or no answer. Right? Well, apparently not.

Yesterday we published written answers to questions we posed to JetSmarter and were told they were from its CEO Sergey Petrossov. Well, today, we received a few additions and updates we wanted to share with you.
With various user websites such as Flyertalk chattering about changes to JetSmarter’s shuttle services, helicopter transfers and that it no longer accepts American Express, Private Jet Card Comparisons reached out to the private aviation seller. We emailed the below questions to CMO Ronn Torossian, and their PR company responded in writing with answers attributed to CEO and Founder Sergey Petrossov. We also reached out to American Express but didn’t receive a response. JetSmarter did not answer our question as to change in overall shuttle flight volume year over year.
JetSmarter is known for its constant promotions, however, in a new one, the Ft. Lauderdale-based private aviation membership program is offering a free three-month membership if you have accumulated over one million frequent flyer miles or credit card points.

While many private jet companies are investing and promoting apps where customers can request and book private jet charters or book flights in jet card programs, the CEO of Air Partner says people do a better job than technology.
