Private Jet Cards on Sale
BOCA RATON, FL – In the past, private jet travel was largely an owner-exclusive method of travel, but private jet travel programs such as Jet Cards and Fractional Ownership have revolutionized consumer access to private aircraft. Some travel programs, however, are still passing on the higher charges for gas they experienced in the past year to their customers even though jet fuel costs are down significantly year-over-year.
“If the private jet company offering the jet card or fractional share has not discounted their rates for 2016, then they are most certainly paying too much.”
Each week, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) updates its jet fuel price index to provide the latest price data. Their weekly index and price data indicates the global average price paid for aviation jet fuel is down 40% from 1 year ago.
The Business Aviation Industry is very sensitive to fuel price fluctuations. Fuel consumption can account for up to half of the total direct operating costs on a typical business jet.
Airstream Jets’ CEO Peter Maestrales recently remarked, “Prospective jet card customers should expect discounted rates compared to last year. If the private jet company offering the jet card or fractional share has not discounted their rates for 2016, then they are most certainly paying too much.”
Maestrales also made it clear that his company was not planning to let this opportunity pass without taking some of that market share. He said, “We know some of the larger providers are struggling, so they either cannot or will not pass those fuel savings on to their clients”.
He added, “Thanks to the lower fuel expense, we’ve been able to discount our jet card rates by more than 15% for 2016”.
Airstream Jets has recently introduced their new DISTANCE CARD™, a jet card membership that offers a much simpler solution to pre-paid jet charter by pricing based on miles flown, rather than the traditional metric of hours. The simplified and quantifiable pricing is based on a ‘tiered price per mile system’ where mileage rates decrease as travel distance increases. The new jet card also offers unmatched aircraft size flexibility, international flights, no surcharges, no overnight costs on round trips, no black-out dates, no membership fees, various discount incentives, and guaranteed availability.
