Read the full Europe Travel Ban proclamation from President Trump at the end of the story
Last night’s Trump Travel Ban forbidding foreign nationals from entering the United States for 30 days starting tomorrow at midnight is likely to force the airlines to cancel more trans-Atlantic flights.
The directive, issued during an Oval Office address from President Donald J. Trump, bans foreign nationals from Europe’s 26 Schengen countries from entering the U.S. It also bans other foreigners who have visited any of the countries 14 days prior attempting entry into the U.S. The ban is set to last 30 days.
The U.K.-based on-demand charter and jet card broker sees strong growth for the U.S. and across many of its sectors
Air Partner is somewhat unique in the field of more than 55
jet card providers we track. It’s publicly traded, albeit in the U.K.
There are other jet card suppliers located within publicly traded companies – Delta Private Jets until its acquisition by Wheels Up, NetJets is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, and Jet Aviation by General Dynamics. However, results aren’t broken out in financials as they are with Air Partner.
Another difference is the diversity of the services it offers, from private and large group charters to freight, fatigue risk management, compliance and safety performance, bird control and wildlife management for airports, plus crisis emergency planning and evacuation.
The jet card broker has acquired the flight scheduling technology platform
Private Jet Services (PJS) Group, which earlier this month revamped its jet card program, said it has acquired The Flight Exchange (TFX), which it describes as “a cutting-edge technology platform that improves the private flight scheduling experience.”
As part of the acquisition, business aviation veteran Chris Early, TFX’s founder, has joined the executive team of PJS and vice president of sales in the Western U.S.
The jet card broker has reduced light jet minimums and is launching fixed-rate, guaranteed availability for transatlantic flights
Private Jet Services (PJS) said it has introduced a series of enhancements to its jet card membership program effective immediately. The changes include lower daily minimums, a choice of how you want to be billed for your flight time, and Wifi guarantee on super-midsize and large-cabin jets.
Its jet card continues without membership fees or blackouts and allows clients to upgrade or downgrade cabin size of their jet at published rates without an interchange fee. Lead time for booking remains at 10 hours on non-peak days.
Jet card broker PJS Group has launched an innovative policy giving clients the option of how they want their trips priced
Actual flight time or estimated flight time? For jet card fliers it has always been a debate, often based on where you do most of your flying.
Actual flight time uses the calculation of wheels up to
touchdown, so takeoff to landing. On the other hand, estimated flight time is
like Uber. It doesn’t matter how long your flight actually takes, you are
billed the estimated flight time quoted prior to your trip.
