The private jet charter operator is offering a new, lower starting option as a response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic
Starting for price for its Centerline jet card is dropping from $148,275 to around $55,000
Private jet operator Priester Aviation is reducing the buy-in for its Centerline jet card to 10 hours from 25 hours. The move means starting price is now around $55,000, down from close to $150,000.
Priester is the latest private aviation membership provider to create a new option in response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis.
The pandemic has created a need for short-notice evacuation and relocation flights.

Chicago-based private aircraft management company Priester Aviation is launching an invitation-only jet card
After testing jet card offerings in Chicago and Dallas earlier this year, Priester Aviation is now rolling out its entry into the increasingly crowded jet card market. According to an email received by Private Jet Card Comparisons, the program named Centerline will be “by invitation only” and is targeted “for the world’s most discerning traveler.” Since the Great Recession, the number of jet card providers has more than doubled with over 40 sellers and over 250 different programs. Jet cards as a product type are increasingly coming in more flavors, including dynamic pricing and denominations starting at five hours. Earlier today, Wheels Up announced it will launch a membership program next year targeting fliers who need less than 10 hours per year. On the other end of the market, there are jet cards with published pricing up to 100 hours.
