On-Demand Charter vs. Jet Cards pros and cons

private jet charter

You can charter a private jet trip by trip – On-Demand Charter – or buy into a program – Jet Cards.

Jet memberships or calling a broker or operator each time. Which is right for you?

Both jet cards and calling a broker to rent a private jet are forms of private jet charter or private jet rental as some call it.

In both cases, we are referring to the entire aircraft as opposed to jet sharing or buy-a-seat models.

However, when it comes to full aircraft charter, which is better – jet cards or on-demand charter?

Should you buy a jet card? Should you just reach out to several brokers before each trip, and then play them off against each other?

The debate would make the Hatfields and the McCoys proud!

How much does a private jet cost?

While a one-off short flight on a light jet might be had for as little as $5,000, you can also buy a new $70 million ultra-long-haul private jet. We look at the options, including full ownership, fractional shares and leases, jet cards and on-demand charter

The cost of a private jet varies widely, from owning an entire aircraft to chartering on-demand. But what are the options?

Fractional ownership and leases, as well as jet cards, have become a popular middle ground, providing convenience and consistent experience in many ways offering the best of either full ownership or on-demand charter.

However, figuring out the right solution isn’t necessarily based only on flight hours. Current U.S. tax benefits of full or fractional ownership can tilt the scale in their favor, particularly if most of your flying is for business.
