Wheels Up, Jet Linx, and XO: Comparing the private jet sharing options

Shared private jet charters offer big savings. Are they ready to take off? An in-depth comparison of the three major shared flight providers.

Jet Linx says last year it flew 40,000 empty seats; XO says it has sold over 160,000 single seats on shared flights

Sharing half of your flights between New York and South Florida during the winter could save as much as $75,000

Restrictions in jet sharing may mean it’s not right for you

Can you fly for the same price as first-class with the airlines?

Everyone wants to fly privately, says Kenny Dichter, the CEO and co-founder of Wheels Up. And the idea is the cheaper it is to fly privately, the more people who will do it. Dichter says that was his idea using the eight-seat King Air 350i to “democratize” short flight.

In the world of chartering your entire aircraft, he cut the price for a one-hour flight for eight people to around $5,000 compared to a cost of $8,000 to $10,000 for the same trip on a jet. His argument was that there was a minimal time penalty since landings and takeoffs are not at full speed, and often as you get near to your destination airport, airplanes are slowed down to similar speeds.

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.
