Paramount Business Jets reaches 200,000 flight mark, earns a spot on Inc. 5000

Private jet charter, jet card membership, and sales and leasing broker Paramount Business Jets (PBJ) said it recently received its 200,000th charter flight request while hopping onto Inc. Magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the United States. 

Jettly Launches Pay As You Go Jet Card Membership Program

The Canadian private jet charter broker is bringing a fixed markup model to its Jet Card

Canada-based upstart Jettly is bringing its fixed pricing markup model of private jet charter to the Jet Card segment. It follows Wholesale Jet Club last year as well as Paramount Business Jets, which both sell Jet Cards using a fixed markup over operator pricing. U.K.-based Victor has said it will launch a deposit product in the U.S. early this year. In the case of Jettly and Wholesale Jet Club, the programs also include a monthly or annual fee in addition to the fixed markup. 

How To Find Your True Hourly Rate When Choosing A Jet Card Program

Jet Card Membership Programs provide users convenience when they fly privately, but finding the true hourly rate you will be paying often takes a bit of work

You ask your assistant to go to a few private jet card membership websites and check out the hourly rates. She follows your instructions and puts them in a comparison chart for you. That was easy! Then you join. You get your first invoice, and shock, the prices you are paying have nothing to do with the rates on the website. It reminds you of that $29 per day car rental that ended up costing you $79.
