Jet Cards And Charter Fulfill Different Private Aviation Needs
Private Jet Card Comparisons is not an advocacy site for jet cards. We are an independent buyer’s guide that compares over 100 jet card programs across 65 variables for you, the consumer. Many jet card users own their own planes, own fractional shares, fly on aircraft their companies own and operate and charter jets as well. Jet cards are part of their private aviation solutions. However, there is the ongoing question – why not just charter instead of prepaying for a jet card?
NetJets was rolling out the red carpet for its fractional share and jet card owners earlier this month in Basel, Switzerland for the original Art Basel, not the one in Miami. A partner with the art fair that draws some 300 galleries and over 4,000 artists for more than a decade, this year the provide jet provider owned by Warren Buffett engaged Frida Fjellman for a bespoke installation in its VIP lounge.
Private jet companies and golf go together like hot dogs on July 4th. NetJets boasts over 35 professional golfers on its roster of players it sponsors. There is even an unofficial Twitter account @NetJetsGolfTeam.
NetJets will be on the fairways next week as it hosts the second annual NetJets Cup pro-am golf event on June 5 at Double Eagle Golf Club in Galena, Ohio. The event pairs PGA Tour Pros and NetJets owners Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and others with NetJets customers for an invitation-only day of golf.
Private Jet Card Comparisons now includes 25 different companies and over 100 programs covered in our 65-point analysis. Private Jet Card Comparisons is the only independent buyer’s guide to private jet card membership programs that enables readers to compare the programs head-to-head with easy to use spreadsheets. It is also updated so all information includes 2017 private jet card membership programs.
NetJets has launched the NetJets Elite Card. If you noticed something different, it is the first card we are aware of that doesn’t carry the Marquis Jet label, however, an official told Private Jet Card Comparisons, “The Marquis Jet name is still in use, we simply chose a different naming convention for this product.”
Perhaps you remember our elected leaders scolding CEOs of private companies for flying in private jets. Certainly, the optics weren’t very good. Three auto company bosses coming to Washington D.C. looking for government money. That said, the country’s largest fleet of private jets isn’t operated by a big corporation or even NetJets, which sells fractional shares in private jets.
