Wheels Up and the NFL Players Association will collaborate on experiences such as the NFLPA Rookie Premiere and NFLPA VIP party
When Wheels Up becomes publicly traded later today or tomorrow it will change its name to Wheels Up Experiences. To that end, it continues to roll out more lifestyle partnerships. Today’s announcement brings the private jet company together with the National Football Players Association.
Wheels Up members get VIP access to Mastro’s, Morton’s The Steakhouse, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Palm, Chart House, Strip House, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, and more
One byproduct of the ongoing pandemic is that it seems harder than ever to get primetime reservations at top restaurants. Wheels Up is seeking to change that for its Core and Business memberships via a new partnership with Landry’s Inc. They’ll also get a perk valued at $7,500 annually.
The pay-as-you-go membership program is broadening its customer base with its new $2,995 Connect Membership while launching a light jet program, anchored by the Citation Encore+, with a fixed hourly rate.
Wheels Up is no longer a two-trick pony. After five years making its mark principally on the back of King Air 350i with the help of the midsize Cessna Citation Excel/XLS, the New York-based privation aviation membership company is taking two big steps today. First, it is moving to fulfill founder and CEO Kenny Dichter’s vision of democratizing private travel even further with its new Connect Membership, which is focused on the concept of sharing flights, booking charter and accessing signature events.
