Jet card broker Airstream Jets is the latest provider to increase prices and lead time to book flights
With the background of tight supply on short-notice and record demand, Airstream Jets is the latest jet card seller to increase rates and lead time to book flights.
The jet card broker already offers discounts for roundtrips, hub flights and booking charter flights in advance
Florida-based Airstream Jets which uses a mileage-based model instead of hours for charging clients has added a new Flex Option Discount for its jet card members. Cardholders with flexible travel dates plus or minus one day who select the option will receive a 5% discount on any one-way trip. A seven day lead time is required. Final travel date will be determined no later than 48 hours prior to scheduled departure.
The first and only mileage based jet card has a number of interesting features beyond its unique mileage-based approach
If the founder of Airstream Jets, Peter Maestrales, had made it to the major leagues, there may never have been a mileage-based jet card.

In this Jet Card Insider, we give you a detailed look at the company’s two card programs, including their strengths and weaknesses. To read the full Jet Card Insider report click here.
The Distance Card is the only jet card program that prices flights by mileage instead of hours
Airstream Jets has added Austin Bergstrom International Airport and Houston William P. Hobby Airport as hubs for its Distance Card jet card members alongside Dallas Love Field giving the Lone Star state three hubs. Cardmembers who originate and terminate their trips at any program hubs receive a 5% discount. Distance Cards are sold at $25,000 or $100,000, plus 7.5% Federal Excise Tax in both cases.
