The itinerary is being offered from November 1, 2018, through April 30, 2019, and the aircraft cost may vary based on the departure city, availability, group size and type of jet

 

On-demand charter and jet card broker PrivateFly and Casa Kimberly, luxury boutique hotel, built from Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s longtime home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico will collaborate on a romantic travel itinerary, according to a press release received by Private Jet Card Comparisons. 

Explaining the differences between broker, fractional fleet, managed fleet and owned fleet jet cards

There are over 40 jet card providers offering more than 250 programs, and there are some significant differences and not just in price

 

In this article, I want to explain the differences in how aircraft for various jet card programs are sourced. Of the subscribers to Private Jet Card Comparisons, I estimate about 75% are flying via on-demand charter, but after getting tired of the work it takes for each trip to compare quotes, quality of providers and varying charter terms, they are seeking an easier solution but don’t necessarily want the long-term commitment of leases and fractional shares, hence jet cards. The benefit of jet card programs is once you choose the right program, arranging your flight is generally one phone call or can even be handled online or through an app. Of course, finding the right provider and program takes a bit of work. We’ve identified over 65 places that the card programs vary, which depending on your flying needs can be critical or incidental. 

Fixed Rate, Guaranteed Availability Jet Card options are growing

Air Charter Services, Jetlogic and JetSuite are the most recent additions to the over three dozen providers that sell jet cards with both fixed rates and guaranteed availability

 

Private Jet Card Comparisons has identified over 65 variables between the over 40 jet card providers and 250 programs we track, and while some points are not important to everyone, each variable can impact the programs that best fit your needs. That said, some variables are universally important, two of the biggest ones being guaranteed availability and a fixed one-way hourly rate.
