JetSuite is repositioning itself as a premium light jet experience, including guaranteed availability, fixed hourly rates and now helicopter transfers via Blade and integrated, full luxury travel agency services through a partnership with Embark Beyond
Entering its second decade, JetSuite’s is repositioning itself to offer a premium light jet experience, including guaranteed availability, fixed hourly rates and now helicopter transfers via Blade and integrated, full luxury travel agency services for its SuiteKey members and on-demand charter customers through a partnership with Embark Beyond.
The Dallas based private jet operator wants to go beyond just getting you there with JetSuite Experiences
SuiteKey jet card members get travel credits up to $3,000 for luxury hotel stays, VIP experiences, and travel services
While partnerships between private jet companies and travel agencies or concierges aren’t new, so far they have been limited mostly to hospitality at major events, one-off trips, and promotions with a variety of luxury hotels. In a joint announcement made today in New York, JetSuite and Embark Beyond are promising what could be a game-changing alliance that will be seamless, integrated and ongoing.
Dallas-based JetSuite, which operates a fleet of owned Embraer Phenom 300 and Phenom 100 private jets, said it has created a strategic partnership with Embark Beyond, a luxury travel advisory that is part of the $25 billion Virtuoso network of travel agencies.
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.
JetSuite wants to bring a premium experience to the light jet charter market and is making a number of changes it says are based on customer feedback
As Dallas-based private jet operator JetSuite gets ready to enter its second decade the company is making sweeping changes to its SuiteKey jet card program. Stephanie Chung, JetSuite’s recently appointed president, tells Private Jet Card Comparisons the moves are part of a “complete brand refresh” that will hit “every touch point…from a new website to invoices. Our goal,” she says, “is to bring a premium experience to the light jet category,” adding, “Most of the competitors tend to focus on their heavy aircraft because that’s where the biggest margin is.”
The Embraer Phenom 100 provides a short-flight solution for up to four passengers who don’t want turboprops and want to fly aboard a cost-effective, modern, state-of-the-art private jet
JetSuite’s SuiteKey members can look forward to more favorable pricing this summer along the East Coast as the now Dallas-based jet card seller and private jet charter operator will be bringing at least several of its Embraer Phenom 100s to the East Coast. The very light jets, which seat up to four passengers, will be on the eastern seaboard beginning the week of June 10 and will stay there through Labor Day in September, the company tells Private Jet Card Comparisons. JetSuite has been in the news quite a bit recently, gaining a significant investment from JetBlue and Qatar Airways, and announcing it is the launch customer of Zunum Aero’s hybrid-to-electric aircraft coming in 2022.
