80% of the credits will be good for discounts of 32.5% to 55% on JSX’s scheduled flights

In a filing with the bankruptcy court released earlier this evening, Superior Air Charter, known as JetSuite, revealed its offer to SuiteKey jet card members. The filing shows these customers had $49.5 million of flight credits when the Phenom 300 operator shut down in April.

Customers say there have been no communications since the private jet operator posted notice Thursday it had grounded its fleet

Private jet charter operator JetSuite and its sibling JSX look to be facing an uncertain future. The latter runs scheduled flights between private terminals using reconfigured regional aircraft.

Both had cut a high profile in the industry, attracting investments from JetBlue and Qatar Airways.

Corporate shuttles have long been a staple of business aviation, but now are serving a more critical purpose

Major companies around the world have long chartered aircraft to operate corporate shuttles. The shuttles typically operate on a schedule, many times between company locations where there is a lack of nonstop airline flights.

Types of aircraft used vary from traditional private jets to regional airliners converted into an executive cabin. Some companies have even operated these types of shuttles on transoceanic routes.
