PrivateFly, one of Europe’s leading jet card providers, has announced record jet card sales for the first quarter of the year, with a 258% uplift in demand. The new figures represent a huge leap versus the same period last year, with March being PrivateFly’s highest ever month of card sales to date.
More clients than ever before are joining the jet card programme, which offers fixed hourly rates and guaranteed availability for private jet flights within Europe.
Marine Eugène, PrivateFly and Flexjet European Managing Director, said: “It’s clear from the extraordinary growth we are seeing that there is strong demand in the current market conditions for a jet card product – providing certainty of price and availability. “With demand for private aviation remaining at an all-time high across the industry, pricing and availability for individual flights on-demand is very volatile. “Clients who fly more regularly are looking for more assurance, both in terms of price and service delivery. “We are also seeing a preference for premium aircraft types and newer models, and have realigned our PrivateFly Jet Card categories to reflect that.”
PrivateFly has brought in a new Super-Midsize Jet Card to replace its previous Midsize offering, giving clients access to larger aircraft across the midsize and super-midsize categories, such as the Citation Latitude and Challenger 350.
This follows a similar switch from a Light Jet Card to Light Jet Card Plus towards the end of last year, offering a more premium selection of smaller aircraft.
