Very Light Jet operator GlobeAir says year-over-year flights in July were up 8.6% with net sales jumping 11.3%
GlobeAir is adding to the good news coming from Europe. Last week NetJets announced it was hiring back furloughed pilots at its subsidiary there. It also said it was reversing plans to ground some of its European fleet there it had designated for retirement.
Jet card broker AirStream Jets is waiving its 20% international surcharge for travel to the Bahamas through the end of 2019
The best way to help the Bahamas recover is to take a
vacation in the Bahamas. It may sound odd, but 60% of the country’s GPD comes through
tourism, and since 90% of its upscale hotel rooms remain open, unaffected by
the wrath of Dorian, falling arrivals create a second economic crisis.
Beyond the hotels, their supply chains include numerous
local businesses, and then there are retail shops, boutiques, restaurants, bars,
taxi services, and the companies that support those businesses.
Jet card and charter operator JetSuite is adding Phenom 300s, paring down its Phenom 100 fleet, and is planning to add at least another type
JetSuite and its sister company JSX are projected to have more than 100 aircraft by 2023
The revamped SuiteKey jet card program with fixed-rates and guaranteed availability is attracting national demand, says president Stephanie Chung
As Dallas-based JetSuite makes the turn into its second decade, its president Stephanie Chung says after a year on the job, she is ready to help lead the company into a future that looks to be focused on larger aircraft. It means paring down the Embraer Phenom 100 that helped launch the company. It recently stopped accepting new members and renewals for the type.
Chung said, “Our immediate goal is to become a dominant provider in the U.S. and to accomplish this, we will continue to add more 300s, as well as gradually lessen our footprint within the very light jet space.”
Will any light jet do, or would it be better to have a specific type such as the Embraer Phenom 300?
While there are many variables that separate the over 300 jet cards in the Private Jet Card Comparisons database – over 65 in fact, one difference means a lot to some people and nothing to others.
However, for both types of buyers, choosing the wrong type of program can make for a less than enjoyable experience despite the provider’s overall merits. Figuring it out before you sign can both save you money and make sure the program fits your mission needs.
There are essentially two ways that available aircraft are structured for fixed-rate (and usually guaranteed availability) programs by jet card providers.
One is by cabin-class or size. When buying into a cabin class you are assured of getting an aircraft in that class or larger if you are lucky enough be upgraded based on operational needs.
The other is by specific aircraft make or type, for example, you are buying into an Embraer Phenom 300. So while the provider may let you fly in other types, you know when you want a Phenom 300, you’re going to get a Phenom 300 and not some other type of light jet.
