JetSuite customers lost $50 million in unused jet card flight credits. Now the company has received $6.5 million from the Treasury Department under the CARES Act
JetSuite emerged from its Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in September. Now the Part 135 private jet operator, which laid off all but a handful of its employees when it suspended flights in April, has received $6.5 million in CARES Act funds.
The approval of JetSuite’s Chapter 11 reorganization comes after opposition from the Trustee overseeing the case and charges the private jet operator had become a Ponzi scheme
(Updated Sept. 8, 2020) JetSuite may fly again. At least that’s the possible outcome now. The judge overseeing the Chapter 11 confirmed the company’s reorganization plan, according to Ted Gavin, managing director of Gavin Solmonese. Gavin serves as the private jet charter operator’s chief restructuring officer. The hearing took place this morning in Delaware.
JetSuite’s Chapter 11 reorganization plan is “not feasible,” according to the trustee
The trustee overseeing JetSuite’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy is urging the judge to reject the company’s proposed plan. The filing today came hours before the deadline for objections and ahead of a scheduled Sept. 3rd court date.
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.
