New Private Jet Cards
FORBES.COM: Airstream Jets’ DISTANCE CARD™ prices your trip by mileage instead of hours.
When you think about jet cards, you probably think hours or dollars, at least until now. Virtually all of these prepaid programs for access to private aviation are marketed in either blocks of hours or dollars. For example, a 25-hour card gives you 25 hours at a contracted rate while $250,000 jet card that gives you that many dollars you can fly at your contracted rate until you run through the money in your account.
However, two companies are varying from hours and dollars approach. Kansas City-based Executive AirShare is offering a jet card program that is based around selling days instead of hours while Boca Raton, Florida-based Airstream Jets is doing it by miles.
