New York-headquartered M2Jets has launched The Metafly Club, a charter membership programme that merges private aviation with luxury hospitality perks around the globe. The brand is founded by M2Jets founder and chairman Moshe Malamud with real estate and hospitality entrepreneur Hassan Chowdhury and nightlife and hospitality mogul Richie Romero. Members will have access to a fleet of Hawker 800, Falcon 50, Falcon 2000, Falcon 900, Falcon 7X, Challenger 604, Gulfstream IVSP and Gulfstream V jets. As well as opening up international routes, the Club offers VIP clients memberships perks at the hottest clubs, restaurants and private accommodations under its umbrella, including Bouge Villas, Sushi By Bou and Nebula.

Malamud established M2Jets in 2008 as a full-service private aviation company specialising in private jet sales, management and charter. The clientele is made up of over 300 HNWIs including heads of state, hedge fund and family office managers, celebrities, artists and musicians.

Hassan Chowdhury has travel, hospitality and real estate interests in New York City and Florida. His Bouge Villas short-term rental company has a presence in high-end Florida real estate and he is expanding the portfolio to include the Hamptons, New York and Mexico.

With over 25 years of experience in hospitality and marketing, Richie Romero is a nightlife fixture in NYC. Romero founded marketing and events company Clique, Jue Lan Club in New York, Sushi by Bou and this year opened Nebula in Times Square.

Malamud says: "We are happy to partner with Hassan Chowdhury, who has amassed many successful ventures with his portfolio of luxury lifestyle, elite concierge and real estate enterprises. We are equally enthusiastic to work with restaurateur and nightlife aficionado Richie Romero, who brings a lifetime of luxury experience with his famed hospitality ventures Nebula and Sushi by Bou. The influence of both these men in the hospitality world is global and that will undoubtedly add to the success of The Metafly Club."

The Metafly Club will launch its NFT membership programme in 2023, merging private aviation and private club membership. Metafly Club members will receive a digital NFT and access to exclusive deals and raffles for private air transportation on national and international routes. They will also enjoy discounted pricing on jet charters and have premium access to empty leg flights at competitive rates as well as crowdfunding to share private jet rides. The first NFTs will launch in 1Q23 through OpenSea.
