Jet Cards are the fastest-growing segment of private aviation, with the number of providers and programs having more than doubled since the Great Recession. Buyers are moving to these programs due to the short-term commitment of jet cards, fixed hourly rates provided in advance, guaranteed aircraft availability—meaning travelers can always get an aircraft when needed—and avoidance of ferry fees, the charge to reposition planes. Determining how much to pay for a private aircraft, however, is no easy feat and can vary greatly on where and when you are flying. In “Jet Card Pricing: 19 Factors That Impact the Cost of Your Private Jet Flights,” author and jet card expert, Doug Gollan, guides readers through what to consider when determining which jet card program best suits their needs.
