Alliance Aviation adds Phenom 300 jet card

Embraer’s popular Phenom 300 is red hot in the jet card market as Alliance becomes the third provider in five months to add a program dedicated to the light cabin jet

The Phenom 300 jet card is priced at $6,995 per hour, plus 7.5 percent Federal Excise Tax

Aircraft specific jet cards are growing in popularity as an option between full and fractional ownership and on-demand charter. Users like them because they know ahead of time what they are getting, and they also know baggage limitations and range constraints. You can put down start-up Alliance Aviation as hopping on the wagon.
