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.
