Bombardier Jet Card Offers Demo Program

 - April 19, 2007, 6:54 AM

Private jet travelers have a new option this summer to sample jet-card membership without the typical 25-hour annual commitment. The Bombardier Skyjet Demo Card is being offered as a special promotion through the end of August. Available to new customers only, the Skyjet Demo Card is priced at a flat $10,000, which can be applied based on 100-hour regular Skyjet Card rates. Examples of hourly rates for same-day or next-day return travel are $2,650 for a light jet, $3,790 for a midsize jet and $6,720 for a large jet (not including taxes, fuel surcharges and landing fees). Aircraft in the program include the Learjet 31/31A, Learjet 60 and the Challenger 604. Restrictions include a longer callout time (24-hour advance notice versus 12 hours for the regular Skyjet Card) and the service area is limited to the continental U.S. (the regular Skyjet Card offers certain international travel in addition to Hawaii and Alaska). The July 4 weekend is blacked out for the trial card.
