JetSuite rebrands JetSuiteX as JSX

JSX operates scheduled shuttles using private jet terminals in the Western U.S.

Jet card and on-demand charter operator JetSuite has rebranded its JetSuiteX division as JSX along with a refreshed website, logo, livery and new ad campaign. The company said its goal is “to define its innovative form of air travel as a ‘hop-on jet service.’”

JSX says its mission is to “dramatically improve short-haul air travel by offering publicly available charter flights on 30-seat jets from private terminals.”

It now flies daily out of six airports: Burbank (BUR), Las Vegas (LAS), Orange County (SNA), Napa/Concord (CCR), Oakland (OAK), and Seattle-Boeing Field (BFI). JSX’s seventh destination, Phoenix (PHX), will launch later this month.

As JetSuite continues its focus on offering a more premium experience, the company has launched a 10-hour promotional jet card to mark its 10th anniversary

 

As JetSuite celebrates the start of its second decade today, the company highlighted in a press release some of its recent changes previously reported by Private Jet Card Comparisons, writing, “JetSuite, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will celebrate its tenth year of operation in 2019 as the first and only premium experience in the light jet category.” It is also offering a 10-hour jet card promotion through January 18th in the light jet category (its Phenom 300). The normal minimum deposit is $100,000, and brings a $6,595 hourly rate, excluding 7.5% Federal Excise Tax (FET), so the promotion essentially allows new members to test the waters for about $30,000 less. The goal of the promo card is to show off some of the changes, according to the company.
