Jetcard takes off as vaccinated vacationers plan to fly private jets at a moment’s notice

Global aviation services group Air Partner says enquiries for its premium JetCard service doubled in January, compared to last year, as travellers looked forward to the easing of restrictions and long-awaited vacations, post vaccination.

Following the UK government’s announcement this week that non-essential international travel might be able to resume from May 17 at the earliest, the company is predicting even greater demand.

Air Partner’s JetCard programme allows clients to buy private jet flying ‘hours’ in advance. It offers a seamless, convenient way to guarantee private travel availability within 24 hours, as well as the ability to change booking details or cancel up to the wire without penalty.  

Air Partner is predicting a surge in private plane use, as  commercial airlines struggle to meet demand when travel restrictions lift, a consequence of reduced staff numbers, and limited commercial flight availability in Europe because of the impact of the pandemic.

In June 2020, Air Partner experienced a 321 per cent increase in people interested in private flying as COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, as it was viewed as a safer, flexible and more reliable option than commercial flying. Buying JetCard hours in advance guarantees the availability of a private jet this summer, even if demand is very high.

Prices for Air Partner’s JetCard begin at €29,875 for the JetCard 5, which includes five hours of flight time.

While the concept of private jet membership has been popular in the US for several years, the pandemic has opened the eyes of the European market to the benefits of JetCard, says Kevin Macnaughton, MD Charter at Air Partners.
