We’re approaching the end of the year and that means there are several special offers available for anyone buying a new jet card or membership. Here’s a run through some of the offers that we’ve heard about.
Magellan Jets offers jet card memberships and on-demand charter flights. Their current offers include a complimentary 5 hour Hawker 400 XP card with the purchase of a 50 hour membership on a super-midsize Challenger 300. The Hawker 400 XP is a light jet with seating for 5-7, a range of 1,465 nm and a max speed of 518mph.
They are also offering the following rates on heavy jets of $11,272 per hour on a Gulfstream GIV-SP and $12,477 on a Gulfstream G450 with the purchase of 25 hour memberships. Both of these rates have daily flight minimums of 3 hours.
In the mid-size category, the offer is on a Hawker 800 XP, where new 25 hour members can get a 25% discount on the fuel rate, dropping the all in hourly charge to $7,207, and they also get 2 complimentary upgrades into a super-midsize aircraft.
All new members who purchase a 15+ hour JetCard from Air Partner, receive an additional complimentary one hour. So 16 hours for the price of 15.
The all-inclusive pricing on Air Partner light jets starts at $4,700 per hour, which are reduced to $3,760 per hour for round trips. The Air Partner cards feature hours that never expire, no peak day restrictions and fully refundable balances.
Delta Private Jets
Purchase of a $250,000 or greater jet card with Delta Private Jets and they will give you two business class round-trip tickets on Delta Air Lines between the U.S. and Europe. Hourly rates are as low as $5,250 per hour which includes fuel and taxes and the rates are locked for up to two years.
In addition, you’ll receive SkyMiles Diamond Medallion Status with Delta Air Lines and be able to use your card balance for both private jet and commercial flights. The close relationship with Delta Air Lines also provides transfers between commercial and private flights in a Porsche vehicle in select markets and airports.
The limited edition SJ25+ card provides access to six of the most popular super-midsize jets, including Challenger 300, Citation X, Citation Sovereign, Falcon 50EX, Falcon 2000, and Gulfstream 200, all of which are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi.
The all-inclusive rate is $8,971 per hour with a 1.5 hour minimum and 15% discounts on hourly pricing for qualifying round-trip travel.
The special holiday offer from JetSuite provides bonus flight credits on all new memberships, with up to $18,000 bonus flight credits available. As a starting point a $50,000 membership deposit will gain $3,500 of flight credits, in other words, a member will have $53,500 to spend and the funds never expire. Current rates at JetSuite are $3,875 per hour (plus taxes + landing fees) on the Phenom 100 for a $50,000 deposit, with lower hourly rates for larger deposits. JetSuite also has Citation CJ3s and Phenom 300s in its fleet, with rates starting at $5,405 per hour for a $50,000 deposit.
While these are special offers that are currently available, we always advise people to ask about any offers at whatever time they are buying a jet card or membership. As you can see there may be hourly discounts, or bonus hours or credits, or we’ve also heard of additional catering credits.
