Fractional and jet card provider Flexjet had paused card sales during the record demand of the covid pandemic. It has been adding multiple new planes to its fleet and has restarted jet card sales.
The newly restarted 25-hour jet card program offers time on just two aircraft, the Phenom 300 light jet and the Challenger 300 mid-size. The call out time on both aircraft is five days of advance notice with no access on peak days.
The 7 passenger Embraer Phenom 300 has a range of 1,971 nm and endurance of 4 hrs. 30 mins. For instance it can fly from Aspen to Teterboro (NY), Houston to Jackson Hole, or Atlanta to Vail. It has a baggage volume of 76 cubic feet.
The 9 passenger Bombardier Challenger 300 has a range of 3,200 nm and endurance of 7 hrs. 45 mins. For instance it can fly from Teterboro to Van Nuys (LA), Austin to Seattle, or Washington DC to St Maarten. It has a baggage volume of 106 cubic feet.
Customers can only buy one jet card in 12 months since Flexjet views the cards as more of a demonstration for their fractional service. The company is also only selling a set number of cards per month to keep the total card hours low as a total of overall fleet hours. This helps Flexjet to forecast demand and be more thoughtful about their service provision.
