Sentient, like several other Jet Card sellers, is amping up the VIP quotient for its customers who will be watching the Patriots battle the Eagles
While it may not be a question of which team Sentient executives will be rooting for on Sunday – the company is based outside Boston – its 150 customers who will be flying to Minneapolis will be getting red carpet treatment regardless of their favorite team. Via its partnership with Primesport, a leader in VIP hospitality, Sentient Cardholders have access to a dedicated concierge for ticket bookings, complimentary ticket upgrades, and access to private celebrity meet and greets. The company also assists Sentient customers in securing hotel reservations and with on the ground staff.
Boston-based Magellan Jets is offering Super Bowl LII tickets and hospitality with the purchase of a 50-hour Challenger 300 Jet Card Membership

Magellan Jets VP of services and support says new jets aren’t necessarily better than old for reliability, and big isn’t necessarily better than small when it comes to private jet operators.
One of the more robust private aviation provider blogs is at the Magellan Jets website. The seller of jet cards and on-demand charter has a regular flow of interesting content as well as publishing some good guides about different aspects of private jet flying. Recently we read a piece by Todd Weeber, the vice president of services and support titled, “5 Questions Everyone Should Ask About Aircraft Maintenance.”
When dealing with winter weather, remember to compare Jet Cards for pilot sourcing standards, the inclusion of de-icing and service recovery policies.
Winter in North America means ski weekends, and to many western resorts flying by private jet will save you major time versus needing to change in airline hubs, switching to the regional jets airlines use to serve many of these destinations. The problem with flying commercially to these places is that when there are cancellations, often you can’t get new seats for days due to the low capacity aircraft they use on these routes.
Jet Card Membership Programs provide users convenience when they fly privately, but finding the true hourly rate you will be paying often takes a bit of work
You ask your assistant to go to a few private jet card membership websites and check out the hourly rates. She follows your instructions and puts them in a comparison chart for you. That was easy! Then you join. You get your first invoice, and shock, the prices you are paying have nothing to do with the rates on the website. It reminds you of that $29 per day car rental that ended up costing you $79.
Magellan Jets offers both category and aircraft specific jet card membership programs and features a safety program that goes beyond the third-party rating agencies
The number of jet card sellers continues to expand, powered by broker-based programs. Broker cards source aircraft from the more than 7,000 aircraft in the FAA Part 135 approved charter fleet, whereas operator cards mostly use aircraft their company either owns or manages. I say mainly because during peak periods many operators have to go outside their fleet to source lift. While there are multiple variances between every card program, those of you who prefer operator programs tend to cite being able to buy a specific aircraft type instead of category and operational oversight of planes and flight crew.
The best way to get the best price and experience is to start planning now
Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holidays are fast approaching, and what it means is that for peak days fractional owners and private jet card members will be on the move. If you are thinking about chartering a private jet, a large portion of the fleet will be active, being used by program members. Jet card and charter seller Magellan Jets has published some helpful tips we are passing along.
