Two former Honda Aircraft sales executives – Glenn Gonzales and Vishal Hiremath – have launched JetClub, a venture that seeks to emulate the success enjoyed by Jet It in North America. JetClub has taken delivery of its first HondaJet and is aiming to provide access to a consistent experience in Europe and Asia for Jet It owners who are travelling abroad. Gonzales and Hiremath created Jet It in 2018 with the goal of bridging the gap between private charter flights and private aviation services. The same access and private jet availability will be available to JetClub members travelling to North America. The ultimate goal is to create two turn-key aviation services.
Jet It is the largest fleet operator of HondaJets in North America and is on track to grow its fleet to double digits before year's end. The company began in 2018 with three employees, including the two founders and has since grown to employ over 50.
JetClub services south east Asia and India as a membership-based private travel service and is offering a hybrid co-ownership service to Europe. JetClub will allow individuals and businesses to affordably commute within their regions while having access to a worldwide fleet when they travel to other regions. JetClub expects to operate throughout south east Asia and Europe by the middle of 2021.
Hiremath says: “After experiencing success and a positive reception to Jet It in North America, we believed we could create a global leader in affordable private travel solutions, and the launch of JetClub is the next step towards that goal.” Gonzales adds: “We plan to replicate Jet It's success in Europe and Asia with the same high level of customer service excellence we are known for. Members and owners can call our international concierge and we will arrange transportation as they travel throughout these regions. In some countries, where there are no FBOs or private terminals, we will have our ground VIP services available that will guide our passengers through immigration and airport terminals.”
