Read the full Europe Travel Ban proclamation from President Trump at the end of the story
Last night’s Trump Travel Ban forbidding foreign nationals from entering the United States for 30 days starting tomorrow at midnight is likely to force the airlines to cancel more trans-Atlantic flights.
The directive, issued during an Oval Office address from President Donald J. Trump, bans foreign nationals from Europe’s 26 Schengen countries from entering the U.S. It also bans other foreigners who have visited any of the countries 14 days prior attempting entry into the U.S. The ban is set to last 30 days.
The U.K.-based on-demand charter and jet card broker sees strong growth for the U.S. and across many of its sectors
Air Partner is somewhat unique in the field of more than 55
jet card providers we track. It’s publicly traded, albeit in the U.K.
There are other jet card suppliers located within publicly traded companies – Delta Private Jets until its acquisition by Wheels Up, NetJets is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, and Jet Aviation by General Dynamics. However, results aren’t broken out in financials as they are with Air Partner.
Another difference is the diversity of the services it offers, from private and large group charters to freight, fatigue risk management, compliance and safety performance, bird control and wildlife management for airports, plus crisis emergency planning and evacuation.

Aircraft specific jet cards are coming in 2020
Directional Aviation’s jet card provider Sentient Jet is celebrating its 20th anniversary. And it has some of its most significant program changes.
In an interview with Private Jet Card Comparisons during Corporate Jet Investor in Miami, CEO Andrew Collins outlined several key updates.
Top of the list is expanding guaranteed Wifi, fixed rates and guaranteed availability for transatlantic flights, and aircraft specific programs.
One thing you probably won’t be seeing from Sentient is jet sharing, according to Collins.
The jet card broker has reduced light jet minimums and is launching fixed-rate, guaranteed availability for transatlantic flights
Private Jet Services (PJS) said it has introduced a series of enhancements to its jet card membership program effective immediately. The changes include lower daily minimums, a choice of how you want to be billed for your flight time, and Wifi guarantee on super-midsize and large-cabin jets.
Its jet card continues without membership fees or blackouts and allows clients to upgrade or downgrade cabin size of their jet at published rates without an interchange fee. Lead time for booking remains at 10 hours on non-peak days.
The jet card and charter broker joins NetJets with its UAE expansion push
Jet card and charter broker Air Partner said it has opened a new office in Dubai as it looks to extend its Middle East presence as it seeks continued organic growth.
Last month, NetJets said it would open a Dubai office in early 2020. Air Partner offers brokered jet cards and private jet charter while NetJets focuses on fractional ownership, leases, and jet cards.
The jet card broker is consolidating to have just one published program for each cabin size category – light, midsize, super-midsize, and large jet
U.K.-based private jet broker Air Partner, which offers fixed-rate, guaranteed availability jet cards for service areas in Europe, including the U.K., the Middle East, and North America, is phasing out its JetCard Sterling as a published offering.
The Sterling level program offers aircraft averaging 10 years old but didn’t guarantee the age of planes, so inventory included pre-2000 model private jets.
With the move, it will now offer singular pricing based exclusively on aircraft that meet its sourcing standards, instead of offering two levels of pricing, one for newer and the other for older jets.
Gross profit of £17.2 million was “stronger than levels anticipated at the time of AGM”
U.K.-based charter and jet card broker Air Partner said its gross profit was £17.2 million for the first half of its financial year, which ended in July. It said the results are “in line with prior period and stronger than levels anticipated at the time of AGM.”
Air Partner sells jet cards with fixed hourly rates that cover Europe, and North America, including the Caribbean and Mexico. During the summer, it introduced one-way transatlantic fixed rates starting with just a 10-hour commitment.
