Private Jet Card Comparisons (PJCC) has published a free first-timers' guide to help new consumers navigate the industry. The Private Jet 101: First-Timers Guide, which covers everything a consumer needs to know before they contact private aviation providers, is available online for free and does not require registration.
“There has been a huge increase in interest for private aviation solutions, much of it from first-timers as commercial airlines reduce the frequency of flights and markets served, and consumers look for ways to avoid exposure to COVID-19,” says Doug Gollan, founder and editor-in-chief of PJCC. “We want to provide those new to the industry with information that will help determine the best solution for their needs, including things to consider before contacting companies.
“Unlike various lead generation sites, Private Jet Card Comparisons never sells or markets subscriber data, nor receives referral fees. This guide allows consumers to read and review their options without worrying about solicitations or telemarketing calls and provides first-timers the ability to educate themselves on their options and the key factors to consider with total peace of mind.”
Key elements of the guide include: information consumers should have about their planned travel before contacting providers to ensure they receive the best advice; jet cards and memberships, plus other options including, on-demand charter, fractional ownership and jet sharing, outlining the positives and negatives for each; who owns the private aircrafts you will fly on; how to avoid illegal charters; and variables that impact the private aviation experience, many of which first-timers may not consider before purchase, including in-flight connectivity, deicing expense, catering, flight attendants and even the size of lavatories.
Earlier this month, Private Jet Card Comparisons donated over 100,000 meals to Feeding America's COVID-19 relief efforts.
