Jet card broker Sentient Jet will be entertaining clients and prospects who are fans of collectible automobiles this weekend in Palm Beach
Directional Aviation’s Sentient Jet will be the presenting partner of Sculpture in Motion, an antique car show that showcases over a dozen one-of-a-kind, classic pre- and post-war automobiles in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday, November 17th at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. The event invites guests of all ages to peruse beautiful cars spanning several distinct decades. Highlights of the exhibition will include children’s programming in the Gardens’ new Environmental Classroom, special tours and presentations of the cars hosted by industry experts and a special VIP cocktail reception allowing for an even more intimate viewing of the automobiles.
Other trends include the pilot shortage, struggle of on-demand brokers to offer instant, guaranteed pricing, and desires of jet card buyers for high-touch, high-level service
While a shortage of pilots in business aviation has been pushing up crew salaries by as much as 20%, buyers of jet cards and on-demand charter can look forward to continued favorable pricing, according to executives attending Corporate Jet Investor’s annual Dealmakers Conference being held this week at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
The jet card provider is offering $4,000 in flight credits and a $1,000 Neiman Marcus gift card in addition to a philanthropic tie-in with No Kid Hungry
Jet card broker Sentient Jet is planning several promotions valid through the end of the year that combine discounts, gift cards and philanthropy. The offers run through the end of the year.
The charter and dynamic-pricing jet card provider updated its most popular destinations, pricing, aircraft types and other metrics
PrivateFly, which in September was acquired by Directional Aviation (owner of Flexjet, Sentient, Skyjet and Nextant Aviation among others), has published its latest quarterly review of trends in the on-demand charter market, at least based on its customers. Among the highlights – which covered July through September, travel to the Adirondacks made its most popular destinations for the first time while the Cessna Citation Mustang emerged as the favorite aircraft. Adam Twidell, the CEO said clients chose to book ahead of time to secure their summer travel plans with 25% of flights booked at least 30 days before departure. August 4th was the single busiest day for flights, with Fridays busy all quarter.
