JetSuite offers a jet card program through SuiteKey and semiprivate flight via JetSuiteX.
Zunum Aero, a pioneer in electric aviation, and JetSuite, Inc., a provider of jet cards, on-demand charter and semiprivate jet flights announced today that JetSuite will be the launch customer for Zunum’s hybrid-to-electric aircraft. The aircraft, the first of a planned family of regional aircraft platforms, seats up to 12 passengers and will be available for delivery in 2022.
Jet cards are the easy way to charter private aircraft. With programs starting at five hours and ranging to over 100 hours, a jet card is as close as you can get to Uber for private jets
After the Great Recession, individuals and companies were less interested in committing to either buy new planes or the three to five years fractional ownership entails. Some companies wanted to keep their private travel habits off their financial statements while in other cases as business picked up they needed some additional lift but didn’t want to add another aircraft to their fleet. Like cars in a driveway, for families, one isn’t enough, and many jet card program allow multiple same time usage. Problem solved!
Searches for jet cards based on price or cost bring up first page results that date back to 2006, and what’s more, many of the prices you see at first glance don’t include a myriad of fees and extra charges
Beyond brand searches for NetJets, Wheels Up, Marquis Jet (it’s now a brand owned by NetJets), JetSuite or Jet Suite, Delta Private Jets, XOJET, Flexjet, Sentient Jet and a few others I was surprised when somebody recently showed that many jet card related searches are based on words like price and cost, and even lowest price. Having spent in large part over the past two years in the deep end of the jet card pool, price, in my opinion, is only moderately relevant.
If you aren’t sure you will need 25 hours over the next two years these programs, which start at five hours and $15,000, are an alternative to on-demand private jet charter
Jet cards are the hot spot of private aviation bridging the gap between on-demand charter and fractional or full aircraft ownership. Jet cards make flying easy with one call or some taps on your smartphone to arrange your flight. Many programs have guaranteed availability with one-way fixed rates so you know what you will be paying ahead of the time. You also don’t have to pay for positioning flights. Lead time to make a reservation can be as little as eight hours and unlike charter, you may be able to cancel within hours of your flight with no penalty.
