While NetJets put its Phenom 300 jet card and fractional offering on waitlist, Magellan Jets is promoting its version of Embraer’s top-selling light jet
Boston-based jet card broker Magellan Jets is promoting its Phenom 300 jet card ahead of a planned rate increase. The hike is scheduled to go into effect on August 16. Most of all, it’s making the point that its version of Embraer’s popular light jet is still available.
Boston-based jet card broker Magellan Jets says as jet card sales soared, the number of hours increased by 20%, although flight hours dropped 20%
Lot’s of buying. Less flying. Like other jet card sellers, Magellan Jets reports its 2020 had ups and downs. Behind a 200% spike in jet card sales and a 20% increase in jet card hours, flight hours were down 20%.
Quincy, Massachusetts-based Magellan Jets was launched in 2008 by Joshua Herbert, who serves as CEO and Anthony Tivnan, who serves as president. The broker uses a network of pre-qualified aircraft.
In 2019, it relaunched its jet card program, eliminating peak-day surcharges, introducing a Phenom 300 option, including Federal Excise Tax in rates, and adding a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Its jet cards offer a number of semi-specific aircraft choices instead of cabin categories. In 2021, it added jet cards on the Citation CJ3 and Challenger 605 to its line-up. It offers deicing insurance for a nominal fee with all jet cards.
