Although many businesses have faced adversity this year, private aviation has experienced unprecedented growth. Flight restrictions and safety precautions persuaded luxury buyers to invest in their health while maintaining essential travel operations. Alternatives to public transit by way of jets, charters and membership options have unmasked paramount growth potential for private aviation companies, both in the short and long-term.
And buyers are reaping the benefits. Increasing interest has empowered management companies and manufacturers to enhance their appeal with amplified luxuries and expanded amenities. Because the transportation industry is adapting to a “new normal,” reduced costs associated with private travel also appeal to new customers. As such, Jet Cards and fractional ownership are in the midst of a renaissance.
Now is also an ideal time to invest in your own hardware. New jets, turboprops and helicopters offer a great return on investment, and this is truly a buyer’s market. Orders for new aircraft and helicopters have allowed the manufacturers to adopt technology that has traditionally been bound to Earth. Now that efficiency has been conquered, we have seen the biggest names in small aircraft focus on exceptional luxury and amenities. Sit back, relax and allow our Aviation Guide to take you to new heights.

No Commissions, No Memberships, No Fees–ever
Though there are many choices when it comes to ﬂying privately, including memberships, jet cards and online and oﬄine commission-based services, ﬂyers looking to directly source and book private jet travel have had no free alternative that aggregates live charter options on demand. However, that recently changed when JetASAP announced the launch of the ﬁrst ever self-service jet charter booking app for Apple iOS, with Android coming soon.
Unlike other digital platforms that provide immediate trip estimates, JetASAP has taken a different approach and built a service that sends each charter request directly to over 700 charter operators, who respond with live bookable quotes. More importantly, because the service is completely transparent, ﬂyers immediately know the details of each operator submitting a quote and can even contact them directly on-demand via the app’s built-in chat feature. To help keep ﬂyers safe, JetASAP has integrated safety rating information via direct automated connections to both ARGUS and Wyvern, the industry’s two primary safety auditing companies. Flyers are able to evaluate each quote, as well as the operator that provided it, and then book directly in the app when ready. JetASAP has integrated a digital signature platform that allows the ﬂyer to view and sign charter operator contracts right in the app, or on their computer if they prefer. Either way,
all trip details, including passenger information, itineraries and changes are handled right through the app to keep everything easily accessible.
Though the service provides tremendous value by offering ﬂyers complete control over the entire booking process, the best feature by far is the price. JetASAP is completely free for ﬂyers to use, with no membership fees, commissions or other charges of any kind. Combined with its powerful ability to directly connect ﬂyers with operators with nobody in the middle, JetASAP is the only private jet travel app you’ll ever need.

Jet It the entire day for only $1,600 per hour. Backed by a 2020 Harvard Business School case study, this rapidly growing private travel experience is transforming the market’s ability to move. Owners receive signiﬁcantly more ﬁght time at 1/5 the cost of traditional fractional ownership. Jet It owner, Anthony M. Gucciardo says, “What attracted me to Jet It is the brand-new ﬂeet, and their service is extremely convenient. I used to ﬂy commercial, then began chartering, but I didn’t enjoy ﬂying on older charter planes.” He’s a successful residential real estate broker in Upstate New York, and utilizes Jet It for his frequent business needs. Jet It’s concierge books entire travel experiences, whether business or pleasure, at no additional cost. “Flying private has been my goal since 18, and Jet It has allowed that dream to come true. I’ve reached the point in my career where I need to ﬂy private, and they allow me to provide the highest level of service to my VIP clients.”
