Vault Aviation launches a capped fixed-rate jet card

Dallas, Texas-based on-demand charter broker Vault Aviation is launching a new jet card concept that combines the guarantees of a traditional jet card program with the elements of on-demand charter

 

Officially launched yesterday, the Vault MAX Jet Card offers fixed hourly rates on light, midsize, super midsize and heavy cabin jets for flights in the continental United States. According to a press release announcing the new program, “When able, Vault will offer MAX Jet Card clients an On Demand rate that is below their fixed hourly rate maximum.” U.K.-based Air Charter Service launched a similar jet card earlier this year where your contracted fixed rate serves as a ceiling.
