JetSuite is Phenom 300 focused with plans to add new private jet types

Jet card and charter operator JetSuite is adding Phenom 300s, paring down its Phenom 100 fleet, and is planning to add at least another type

JetSuite and its sister company JSX are projected to have more than 100 aircraft by 2023

The revamped SuiteKey jet card program with fixed-rates and guaranteed availability is attracting national demand, says president Stephanie Chung

As Dallas-based JetSuite makes the turn into its second decade, its president Stephanie Chung says after a year on the job, she is ready to help lead the company into a future that looks to be focused on larger aircraft. It means paring down the Embraer Phenom 100 that helped launch the company. It recently stopped accepting new members and renewals for the type.

Chung said, “Our immediate goal is to become a dominant provider in the U.S. and to accomplish this, we will continue to add more 300s, as well as gradually lessen our footprint within the very light jet space.”
