Executive AirShare’s jet card – EMBARK – uses a combination of days and hours, starting at 10 days per year
Executive AirShare (EAS) last week announced it is expanding its fractional ownership, leases and jet cards to Denver and surrounding communities within the Rocky Mountains. “Bringing our private aviation solutions to Denver is a natural decision for us,” says John Owen, Executive AirShare president and CEO. “The Denver market is one of the most desirable destinations in the country and has long been a part of our vision for growth. It was the perfect time to make the move. Everyone who flies with us will benefit from the efficiencies and lower costs associated with the opening of our new Denver base.”
In addition to flying you where you want, when you want, among the perks jet card memberships provide is VIP access to marquee sporting events, hotel discounts and membership fees waived. We take you behind the scenes with Sentient Jet at the recent 2018 Belmont Stakes.
We first started to sense one of our favorite football players might be teaming up with Sentient Jet when we saw the New England Patriot’s all-star tight end climbing aboard a private jet after a vacation in Jamaica with girlfriend Camille Kostek and tagging the Boston-based seller of jet card memberships, which happens to be a regular on the thoroughbred horse racing circuit. And of course, at the Belmont Stakes, there was this horse named Gronkowski. We also spotted Gronk boarding an @SentientJet private jet “Belmont bound to cheer on Team Gronkowski (The horse).” Yes, we didn’t major in math, but we can usually add 2+2 together.
Alto is the new points-based frequent flyer program targeting private jet fliers who use Victor’s on-demand brokerage. We give you our evaluation – Is it worth it?
First, among major airlines, there was American Airlines and its AAdvantage Frequent Flier program back in 1981. Its compelling proposition of free flights to Hawaii made it an instant hit. Within months came everyone else. In the world of jet cards and fractional ownership, there have long been referral programs. Refer a friend (or enemy) and earn free flight hours, which with hourly rates of up to $10,000 or more, can be well, valuable. When buying cards, you can also try to wrangle an extra hour when you are signing. For on-demand charter, it has been mainly a trip to the Grand Bazaar with each journey a new opportunity to hone your skills and ask your broker, “Are you sure you can’t do a bit better?” Yesterday, U.K.-based charter broker Victor said it had launched its own frequent flier program hoping to develop loyalty with rightfully fickle on-demand charter customers who are conditioned to shop for a deal.
Ricky Sitomer says his new platform for jet cards and on-demand charter, Star Jets International, is on target with growing sales and a new ‘real-time’ booking app
Ricky Sitomer’s Star Jets International (OTC:JETR), a broker of jet cards and on-demand private jet charter services, said it had completed its initial beta testing of the company’s ‘real-time’ booking platform. After five months of development, Star Jets International expects to launch the online booking engine and the app for Android and Apple iOS at the beginning of the third quarter. Sitomer first rose to fame as the co-founder of Blue Star Jets, named for the fictional airline in the movie Wall Street. Last year he came back to the private jet charter space with the launch of Star Jets International, a reverse takeover to provide a publicly traded entity, and a stated ambition to buy other private charter companies with the goal of building a multi-hundred million dollar sales volume.
Omaha-based Jet Linx sells jet cards in 14 markets nationwide where it manages private jets for their owners
