JetSuite debuts aircraft management program

Private aviation company JetSuite has unveiled its aircraft management program that is designed to reduce the cost of ownership for single-aircraft owners.

Strong demand in JetSuite’s charter flights and growth in their SuiteKey program led to the creation of the multi-tiered aircraft management offering. Each of the three options offers owners substantial reductions in the cost of operating their planes with various levels of aircraft availability based on their expected flying needs. The options include:

RedStripe, which enables JetSuite primary access to aircraft for revenue service, while making the plane available for planned trips by the owners on a scheduled basis; GreyStripe, which targets owners, operators and small corporate flight departments who want additional revenue for their otherwise stagnant assets; and WhiteStripe, which outsources the complete operation to JetSuite while retaining owner control of the availability of the aircraft.

Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuite, commented, “We are thrilled to provide single-aircraft owners with three options that are tailored to their aircraft management needs.

“Owners can now enjoy JetSuite’s unparalleled level of service and operations while maximizing utilization and greatly reducing their costs. In turn, this allow us to meet growing demand for JetSuite charter flights.”

The program focuses on management of aircraft like those already in JetSuite’s portfolio, including Phenom 100, Phenom 300, Embraer Legacy 600 and 650 aircraft. As a perk of the program, owners will gain access to the JetSuite owned and operated fleet.

JetSuite has provided private jet service since 2009 with aircraft including four-seat Phenom 100s, six-seat JetSuite Edition CJ3s, and 30-seat Embraer E135 jets, flying to more than 2,000 airports in the USA, Canada, Mexico and Caribbean.
