Fly Private Friday – Lots of little kids on big private jets #FlyPrivateFriday

When you buy a jet card, you don’t just buy hours of flight time, you buy hours of family time. After you look at these adorable pictures, we dare you not to buy a jet card! #FlyPrivateFriday

 

Jet cards enable you to book a jet with one call being secure that you know the safety standards from your program for sourcing both aircraft and pilots.

Victor is launching Alto – a frequent flyer program for on-demand private jet charter customers

Alto is the new points-based frequent flyer program targeting private jet fliers who use Victor’s on-demand brokerage. We give you our evaluation – Is it worth it?

 

First, among major airlines, there was American Airlines and its AAdvantage Frequent Flier program back in 1981. Its compelling proposition of free flights to Hawaii made it an instant hit. Within months came everyone else. In the world of jet cards and fractional ownership, there have long been referral programs. Refer a friend (or enemy) and earn free flight hours, which with hourly rates of up to $10,000 or more, can be well, valuable. When buying cards, you can also try to wrangle an extra hour when you are signing. For on-demand charter, it has been mainly a trip to the Grand Bazaar with each journey a new opportunity to hone your skills and ask your broker, “Are you sure you can’t do a bit better?” Yesterday, U.K.-based charter broker Victor said it had launched its own frequent flier program hoping to develop loyalty with rightfully fickle on-demand charter customers who are conditioned to shop for a deal. 

Five safety questions to ask private jet charter operators before you buy

While many searches for private air charter start with ‘how much does a jet cost?’ or some derivative about pricing and hourly rate, jet card and charter operator XOJET outlines some key safety questions to ask

 

The following was published on XOJET’s blog and is reprinted with the company’s permission:

The key to finding a great private aviation provider is knowing their number-one priority is the same as yours: for every flight to be as safe and secure as scientifically possible. To confirm that to be true, says Dan Ramirez, XOJET’s Director of Safety, customers should ask private aviation companies five simple safety questions before considering flying with them. “Every staff member of credible, safety-first organizations,” he explains, “will be happy to answer those questions in detail.”
