Edinburgh-based Jetlogic is launching a private European jetcard for frequent fliers, claiming it is the most flexible on the market.
The prepaid jetcard is available with a minimum of 15 hours flying time and will give customers guaranteed, around-the-clock access to private jets across Europe. A US version of the jetcard is planned for later this year.
Jetcard holders will have 24/7 access to a personal account manager, who will arrange the charter of private air travel from and to anywhere in the world with as little as four hours’ notice. The card hours can be on light, midsize, super midsize and large jets.
The benefits of the card include no fuel surcharges, flight credit that never expires, no exit penalties, no peak days and all-inclusive pricing.
Clients are provided with inflight catering on all jetcard flights, with full menu breakfast, lunch and dinner options available on US flights and suitable time of day options available on European flights.
Leigh Mellis, who launched Jetlogic in 2009 following a career in the private aviation and superyacht industries, said, “Demand for private air travel is now higher than at any point since 2008. The industry has faced a turbulent time, but it is now back to where it was before the crash.
“With customers demanding more flexible arrangements, the jet card offers customers the opportunity to hire a private jet anywhere in Europe at a moment’s notice. Jet card members can also use their card fund to access 3,500 private aircraft around the world.”
Mellis built the company up over the last nine years without external investment. Located in her home city of Edinburgh, it avoids accruing London-associated overheads .
“As the only private jet operator in Scotland and one of a handful outside of London, we are able to pass on operating cost savings to our clients,” Mellis added.
“I’ve built Jetlogic’s reputation for delivering meticulous service and cost effective bespoke solutions and, together with my team, we pride ourselves on providing a superior client experience rooted in attention to detail, discretion, reliability and a highly responsive and flexible approach to individual travel requirements.”
