Advantages of On-Demand Charter

When you become a jet card member, you’re guaranteed availability on a specific class aircraft, but you’re also locked into a fixed rate for all of your hours, and you might not fly on the same plane twice. When renting a CL-300 with our on-demand jet charter service, we’re able to locate all of the models available across the domestic and international markets, finding potential empty legs, transient jets, and other cost-saving deals we’re able to pass on to our clients.

Even if you’re already a jet card holder, feel free to compare us to your current plan! Give us a call and provide your flight details for n upcoming trip, and see how our on-demand charter service compares to your current rates. Many times it’s more cost-effective to charter a plane for a specific flight that doesn’t make sense for your jet card, allowing you to save your hours for more appropriate trips.
