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.
