Jumpjet has officially launched its new private jet service.
With Jumpjet, high-end frequent-fliers will get to fly on private jet for a fixed monthly fee — with a year-long commitment to pay it.
Will Ashcroft, Jumpjet’s founder, says his company will offer private jet service for a price that is competitive with first- and business-class fares. He added his company will be popular with frustrated premium passengers.
Basically, Jumpjet offer its members three packages to choose from, each of which comes with 10 round trips per year.
Members are required to pay a $550 initiation fee first, then If approved, they choose from one of the three following packages.
- Upper Club package: ($2,350 per month) it offers 10 round trips per year on flights of 1,750 miles or less.
- Upper Club Plus package: ($3,995 per month) it comes with 10 round trips per year on flights of 2,250 miles.
- Coast to Coast Elite package: ($5,550 per month) it offers 10 round-trip flights that can be booked to any destination in the U.S. (48 mainland states).
Also, Jumpjet offers an option, Jump Share, allowing a group of up to 10 people to join their resources to purchase either an Upper Club or Upper Club Plus membership.
Another option allows members to bring up to seven guests along on their flights, for a fee of $1,250 per round-trip.
Members will be able to set their own routes and schedules, but are required to reserve their itinerary at least two weeks in advance.
