Tradewind Aviation is launching by-the-seat private flights from Westchester County Airport to Newport State Airport beginning July 2

Tradewind Aviation is cutting the four-to-five-hour drive between Westchester County and Newport, Rhode Island to 40-minutes in the air. Beginning July 2, it will offer by-the-seat flights using private jet terminals aboard its fleet of Pilatus PC-12s. According to its website, tickets are priced from $145 each way.

These jet card programs will let you cancel with 12 hours notice or less

Jet card cancelation penalties

Last-minute cancelations can be expensive, wiping out savings you thought you had achieved. These jet cards allow you to cancel without penalty with 12 hours notice – or less

One question I ask subscribers I talk with is whether or not they are likely to make changes or cancel within 24 hours of their scheduled flight time. In these times, it’s more likely than ever you might need to switch things up.

While providers generally try to work with customers, your contract sets the cancelation terms. If you cancel inside the deadline, you can well lose your entire charter amount, so possibly tens of thousands of dollars. Losing $25,000 for a single cancelation is like adding $1,000 per hour to the effective rate of a 25-hour jet card. Do it twice, and it’s adding $2,000 per hour. You may quickly wonder if you bought the right jet card!

These 18 jet cards have no peak day surcharges

While some programs have peak day surcharges up to 67%, these jet cards have 0% surcharges on high-demand days

Peak days in jet card programs are just that. They are the dates with the highest demand. They’re typically around major holidays, sporting events, and school breaks. With surcharges ranging up to 67%, travel on peak days is best avoided. But, if you aren’t flexible on your travel dates, these North American programs won’t charge you extra to fly.
