XOJET says Q1 brokerage revenue jumped 39.5%

Following re-launching and expanding its jet cards, the operator and broker is also planning to add new private jets in 2018

 

XOJET is planning to add “three or four aircraft” to its fleet of 41 Challenger 300s and Citations Xs, according to an interview in Aviation International News.

Here are seven companies that have recently launched jet card membership programs

The number of new jet card providers and programs has grown more than 20% in just the past three years

 

Over the past three years, there are at least seven new private jet card providers that have entered the market, either start-ups or existing aviation companies that have launched jet card programs. Additionally, there are at least three or four programs soon to be launched we are aware of and getting ready to fill you in on the details.

Here’s why jet cards are the hot spot of private aviation

The diversity of jet cards has never been wider with more options and more programs from pay as you go membership to global products

 

When Sentient Jet pioneered the jet card in the late 1990s, the jet card was a defined and narrow niche. Sold in increments of 25 hours, the jet card was thought of specifically for folks who flew privately between 25 and 49 hours over the course of one to two years. The offerings were based on private jets alone. Wow, times have changed. Today there are over 35 providers and more than 250 programs. Private Jet Card Comparisons has identified over 65 variables that differentiate the offerings. What’s more, you can now find programs offering turboprops and even piston aircraft up to airliner size jet access.
