Over 50% of private jet flight hours sold since the beginning of April were to new customers
Jet card leader Sentient Jet today offered more evidence that private jet travel is set to get a boost from first-timers.
The unit of Directional Aviation’s OneSky Flight said over 50% of the more than 5,000 private jet flight hours it sold since the beginning of April were to first-time customers. Private Jet Card Comparisons estimates that equates to around $15 million in purchases from new members.

Likewise, in private aviation, not everything that gets big starts big, particularly in the brokerage area where there are few barriers to entry, knowledge not necessarily being one of them. However, if you look at Barbara Corcoran, even if you don’t own product, but serve as a middle man, it’s still entirely possible to reach lofty heights.
It’s hard to tell if two-year-old Naples, Florida-based Outlier Jets will someday become a well-known brand in the jet card and on-demand private jet space, however, it’s off to a good start.
