JetSuite plans to add new aircraft to its fleet and refresh its membership program as it moves into its 10th year of business in 2019, the company announced yesterday. “We are proud that in the highly competitive world of private aviation, JetSuite now stands as one of very few operators to achieve this 10-year milestone,” said Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuite and JetSuiteX.
Plans call for the company to add larger jets this summer to its existing fleet of 10 Embraer Phenom 100s, five Phenom 300s and one Legacy 650, spurred by investments in JetSuite by Qatar Airways and JetBlue, the latter of which Wilcox served as founding executive. Company officials said the fleet expansion will comprise additional Phenom 300s and "other aircraft types to provide a greater range of options for JetSuite clients.”
JetSuite is also refreshing its SuiteKey membership program to offer preferred, fixed hourly rates, no repositioning fees, 365-day access and guaranteed availability of aircraft with 48-hour notice. This membership starts at $100,000. The company will also continue to offer on-demand charter services.
