Florida-based boutique jet card broker Velocity Jets is putting a 30-day hiatus on accepting new jet card clients as demand surges to record levels
Boutique jet card broker Velocity Jets is putting a 30-day stop on accepting new jet card clients. WingX earlier today reported private jet flights over the July 4th holiday were 44% above 2019 pre-Covid levels. Founder and CEO Patrick Harris tells Private Jet Card Comparisons that it’s both a supply and demand issue.
If you fly from winter weather to winter weather, deicing charges can add up. Some jet cards include deicing in your hourly rate – and they aren’t necessarily more expensive
It’s not even summer, yet. But it will soon be winter, and if that means winter weather. And that means your private jet may need deicing. Deicing can cost from under $1,000 to as much as $10,000 per incidence. The cost varies by the size of your airplane and airport rules, plus what type of fluid and how much is being used.
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.
Both the Coronavirus pandemic and the CARES Act waiving the 7.5% Federal Excise Tax are impacting jet membership costs and terms
(Updated Nov. 20, 2020) To say the past month and a half has been a roller coaster for private aviation would be an understatement.
March started with high hopes. A spike in requests from first-timers who wanted to get to second homes or relocate family members kept activity close to normal.
