The Denver-based jet card broker offers over 100 aircraft specific options for 25, 50, and 100-hour membership programs
Denver-based private jet charter broker OneFlight International is probably best known for having Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec as its frontman for TV commercials. However, its jet card offering a flight-by-flight choice of over 100 different aircraft types from the King Air 350 to Gulfstream G650 is truly unique. Now it is bulking up its lifestyle partnerships, as well.

8 of the 10 largest companies are led by the founder or family member
Here’s a big difference between the private jet market and the airlines. Just 10 airlines account for 90% of the domestic market for scheduled passenger traffic. Four companies – Delta Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, and Southwest Airlines – are responsible for two-thirds of U.S. flights.
Despite consolidation, business aviation remains fragmented. An analysis by Private Jet Card Comparisons of various reports from Argus TRAQPak and other data shows the 25 largest operators of charter and fractional fleets together account for just 25% of all U.S. flying.

The Englewood, Colorado-based jet card membership program offers guaranteed one-way hourly prices on more than 50 aircraft types from the King Air to a Gulfstream G650
One drawback of many jet cards is you choose a category of the private jet, typically Light Jet, Midsize Jet, SuperMid and Heavy Jet and while many programs allow you to upgrade or downgrade your category, the provider can give you any aircraft in that category that fits its sourcing criteria. Fleet operators and fractional jet card programs, as well as a few broker programs, allow you to select aircraft types, however, ONEFlight enables its customers to choose from over 50 aircraft types, each with its own hourly rate. Even better, you can choose whichever aircraft type you want for every trip.
