Sentient Jet has launched its 2023 exclusive benefits guide for jet card owners. Marking its 10th edition, the guide highlights offerings available from a wide collection of strategic partner brands. Card owners who take full advantage of the guide have access to benefits to the value of approximately $184,000.
“Exceeding expectations has always been our priority, but so too has been rewarding the loyalty that jet card owners have for our services. Our new exclusive benefits guide for 2023 reveals the thoughtfulness and dedication we put into both with more than 40 partners, new and long term alike, whose offerings and benefits add real value to the industry-leading private aviation experience we provide,” says president and CEO Andrew Collins.
Service benefits range from exclusive offers from trusted partners such as Flexjet Helicopters, Exclusive Resorts, The Eden Club, The Little Nell and PS aka Private Suite.
Sentient Jet has been the official private jet partner of Aspen Snowmass for the past 17 years and The Little Nell, Aspen's only five star, five diamond hotel at the top of America's most famous mountain town, has been part of Sentient Jet's exclusive benefits guide since its inception.
“Over 10 years since we first joined in partnership with Sentient Jet, the company's reputation for consistent, unmatched service has only grown stronger. Each year we work closely with the Sentient team to create a customised offer for Sentient Jet's benefits guide that is exclusively available to its card owners, and we are excited to further our relationship with a true leader in private aviation as the industry continues to evolve,” says The Little Nell general manager Henning Rahm.
Card owners benefit from Sentient Jet's leading safety infrastructure, in which the company has invested millions of dollars, its industry first Independent safety advisory board and exclusive safety certification technology.
Sentient Certified is a proprietary certification process led by its in-house chief safety officer. Each operator, aircraft and pilot that flies for its programme, as well as each flight, is individually certified by Sentient Jet, ensuring that all components of its stringent safety standards, including operator, aircraft, pilot and flight certifications, are met on each and every trip.
Sentient Jet has also partnered with fellow Directional Aviation brand fixed wing and seaplane air ambulance company Reva, and with its newest travel protection programme ARREVA Advantage. Card owners can tap into its comprehensive medical and insurance benefits, save on air ambulance transport services and other medical assistance needs.
“Working with a company that takes safety as seriously as we do is a priority. We partnered with Reva to offer card owners top-of-line, efficient emergency medical assistance services including air ambulances, seaplanes and a travel protection programme without the worry of any added costs. Through our partnership, card owners can rest assured that their trip is fully taken care of no matter what unforeseen circumstances arise,” says chief safety officer Chuck Starkowsky.
A key benefit to the programme is Sentient Jet's digital booking tools. Chief technology officer Durga Nagalla says: “It is important to us to keep evolving our digital offering to better enhance the booking experience and give our card owners instant access. With text-to-book they're able to quote and book a flight in seconds, and through our mobile application they can redeem benefits, instantly quote and book flights, manage their trips, and access real time Sentient Certified safety check notifications via SMS and 24/7 online chats. As our card owners become more and more technologically savvy, so will we.”
Sustainability partner 4Air supports the company's commitment to both carbon and emissions-neutral flying with an option for clients to become a Beyond Neutral and Climate Champion.
“As consciousness around environmental impacts on both the consumer and corporate side grows, Sentient Jet continues to lead the industry by committing all of its flights to 4Air's carbon and emissions neutral standard. Our continued commitment to driving forward our sustainability initiative both pushes the industry to evolve and serves as a true benefit to the emissions-conscious flier,” says 4Air president Kennedy Ricci.
Looking ahead, Sentient Jet will also continue to refine the jet card category with purpose by investing in sustainability and technology to create both a positive impact and better optimise its card owners overall experience.
