Is NetJets readying a new jet card?

NetJets is the largest operator of private jets in the world, but it doesn’t offer all of its aircraft types in jet cards. Which one is next?

 

NetJets has previously said the jet card flying accounts for about 20% of flights with its core business of fractional shares and leases taking up the lion’s share. Currently, it has five jet specific cards covering light, midsize, super midsize and large private jets, a combination card that enables buyers to split time between two types, a cross-country card and an Elite card, which includes FET and fuel surcharges in pricing. There are no turboprops in the NetJets fleet, but it has a number of aircraft not in the jet card programs.

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.”
