I usually converse to folks on a regular basis who say they’ve a Jet Card. The primary query I ask them is what are their typical routes that they’re presently flying. Nearly all of them are flying typical routes that ought to be utilizing constitution as an alternative of their Card. For instance, for those who fly TEB (New York) to ASE (Aspen) and have 12 or extra folks constitution is more economical than your Jet Card. Even for those who go for greater than 3 days constitution is the higher technique to go. I’ve a consumer who flies TEB-ASE-TEB spherical journey with an 8 day hole and has been utilizing his Marquis Jet Card. He would usually pay $120k-$150k spherical journey utilizing his G-IVSP card. He’s presently paying between $14k-17k an hour. If he chartered as an alternative he could be on a more moderen plane, with very same security rankings for a value between $84k-90k all in. And that approach he could be saving 10 hours on his Card. The time to make use of your Jet Card is when your taking your Gulfstream from New York to Nantucket or Martha’s Winery. One other instance is Los Angeles to Las Vegas or Los Angeles to Aspen as a result of 90% of constitution operators cost a minimal of two hours per day to make use of the aircraft.
Final week I booked a visit with a consumer who’s flying from SNA (John Wayne) to AGS (Augusta) for the masters. He additionally has a Marquis card and could be paying a minimal of $50k for the spherical journey. He has a Marquis Quotation Excel card and pays an all in common of $8k-$8.5k which incorporates the hourly, gas and tax. The flight time is 4 hours over and 5 again. At 9 hours he would pay a minimal on his Excel (54k) which would want a gas cease from AGS-SNA anyway. He’s chartering on this flight and might be paying $38k on a Hawker 1000 which is loads larger within the cabin and might do it non cease each methods. So proper there there’s $16k in financial savings.
As you possibly can see the Marquis Card is ideal for journeys underneath 2 hours to distant areas. Should you use your Marquis Jet Card for journeys like Florida to New York constitution is more economical. I am not saying do away with your Jet Card, I am simply saying be sensible with the Card and complement it with constitution.
Individuals purchase a Jet Card as a result of they need a set hourly price. That hourly price is loads increased than constitution costs as a result of the bulk of people that have Jet Playing cards are doing one methods. For instance for those who usually fly from VNY-SFO for per week journey, Marquis would cost you 6k for that a technique. A neighborhood constitution operator would cost you about 6k, since its an hour up and an hour down and there is a two hour minimal. There are a number of operators that cost solely level to level and the vast majority of them are on the east coast.
