The world’s largest private jet operator is updating its Marquis Jet and Elite jet card memberships in response to declining fuel prices and the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic
NetJets is eliminating fuel surcharges on its Marquis jet card programs and moving to inclusive pricing. At the same time, it is reducing the inclusive pricing on its Elite branded jet cards.
The move was not publicly announced but is instead being communicated directly to customers and prospects.
The fractional jet card and ownership seller continues to be busy on the lifestyle front with luxury travel and real estate partnerships
Yesterday and today we had two separate releases from NetJets, one announcing a new partnership, and a second extending one launched just last year. In the case of the newest addition, it comes within the family of parent Berkshire Hathaway as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England, New York and Westchester Properties saying “agents and their clients will have access to NetJets benefits.”
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.
