Lake Como, New Jersey-based entrepreneur Edgar Alacan is the co-founder of Jets.com, a leading private jet company that offers private jet charter and rental services. Together with his co-founders, Edgar Alacan grew Jets.com from a three-person operation to over 50 employees and $40 million in annual sales. Jets.com has several programs for its clients, including the Jet Card Membership program.
Jet Card opens the door to safe and luxurious private jet travel. The prepaid card allows users to purchase flight hours in 25-hour increments (25 hours, 50 hours, 75 hours, and so forth). Users can then redeem these hours to fly anywhere in the United States with a 24-hour notice or internationally with a 72-hour notice. The Jet Card program’s pricing is all-inclusive with no hidden costs such as fuel surcharges, additional overnights, deadhead charges, and taxi time.
There are four pricing tiers for Jet Card membership. These depend on the size of the jet a user wants access to. There is a light jet card, mid-size jet card, super mid-size jet card, and heavy jet card. Light jets are great for short trips under two hours and fit a maximum of seven passengers, while mid-size jets stay in the air for four-five hours and can fit eight people with additional luggage space. Super mid-size jets are more spacious than mid-size jets and can accommodate nine passengers, while heavy jets can go 4,000 miles without refueling and carry a maximum of 14 passengers.
Jet Card membership hours never expire. Customers can upgrade or downgrade jet sizes with no penalties, and they can also transfer their flight hours to other people.
