In a bid to attract new jet card memberships, Baltimore-based Part 135 operator GrandView Aviation is adding a new benefit to its Altitude Plus membership program by offering access to fixed prices on 70 of its most popular routes. This represents a savings of up to 15 percent on rates that will increase after the first of the year. New members that sign up for Altitude Plus by January 1 will be able to access those rates throughout 2023, avoiding the rate increase. The benefit is also applied to existing Altitude Plus memberships.
The fixed rates are subject to specific airports and aircraft availability with 14 days advance notice prior to departure. They do not include federal excise taxes or deicing charges. Altitude Plus members pay a $150,000 deposit that covers a two-year period and automatically receive a 10 percent discount on flight charges and earn rewards such as a $200 catering credit for every flight day.
“As other private jet operators suspend new jet card sales or curtail benefits, GrandView is actively selling new memberships offering major new benefits,” said GrandView COO Jessie Naor. “By providing a fixed menu on our most popular routes at significant savings, we expect strong demand for flights from existing members and a significant increase in new jet card memberships.”
