Private jet charter operator JetSuite has grounded its fleet of Embraer Phenom 300s and 100s
Sister JSX is continuing a reduced schedule of flights between private jet terminals
Private jet charter operator JetSuite, which sells Phenom 300 jet cards, is halting operations. The move reflects a steep dive in private travel from the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. Closure of many hotels and resorts has meant aside from second homes and emergencies, there are few places to travel.
The scheduled by-the-seat flights cut travel time in half by using private jet facilities
Having recently added Phoenix, Seattle, and Portland, JSX is now adding back Reno, Nevada to the fast-growing.
Beginning May 8 JSX will serve Reno from both Las Vegas and Burbank with fares starting as low as $119.
The Phenom 300 fleet operator is rolling out more VIP JetSuite Experiences for members of its SuiteKey jet card program
JetSuite is adding more JetSuite Experiences for the holidays and the new year, according to a promotional email from the Embraer Phenom 300 operator.
The Dallas-based seller of jet cards and on-demand charter launched the program in May in partnership with Embark Beyond, an award-winning travel agency, and concierge service.
Deicing can run up to $10,000 per incidence, so if you are doing a lot of winter flying, it’s something you should consider when comparing jet cards
If you’ve mainly flown commercially, on a corporate jet or with friends, you may not have thought about deicing in terms of who’s paying for it. So you bought a jet card. Congratulations – you just made your life easier for you and whoever will be flying with you! As you sit in the FBO on a cold winter’s day and watch the truck pull up next to your jet, you might think, “Geez, I’m glad I’m not that guy on the boom lift. It must be cold up there!” You may not have realized that what was coming out of the hose was not just fluid, but money, possibly yours. Chances are you won’t find out about it until you get your monthly statement weeks late. I say possibly because some jet card programs include deicing and others don’t.
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.”
