- Why NetJets is suspending their Jet Card program temporarily
- A word from Patrick Gallagher, NetJets president of sales, marketing, and service
NetJets has decided to pause all jet card sales in order to prioritize the jet card experience that NetJets promises to deliver, NetJets president of sales, marketing, and service Patrick Gallagher said in a letter to employees earlier this week. This expands on the company’s move last month to similarly pause sales of fractional shares, leases, and jet cards for the Cessna Citation XLS and Embraer Phenom 300 due to “unprecedented demand within the private travel industry.”
Now, all request for the NetJets Jet Card Program will be put on a waitlist, keeping the same price for members that are already on the waitlist. If the paise on the card extends into 2022, anyone on the waitlist will be grandfathered in at 2021 prices.
“It comes as no surprise that those looking to fly private want to fly with NetJets,” Gallagher said. “Despite taking previous actions to slow our sales process, we have continued to see the interest in NetJets accelerate. Having by far the most experience…gives us the knowledge and confidence to navigate times like these and protect the travel experience for the long term.” NetJets is looking to add over 100 aircraft between now and the end of 2022. In June it suspended its Elite jet cards and the Latitude. Then last month it halted sales of cards, shares, and leases on the Phenom 300 and Citation XLS.
