How We've Broken away from the Rest Of The industry To Lower Pricing & Expand Offerings

Magellan Launches Lower Pricing Paired With Enhanced Product Offerings

BOSTON, Mass. (May 11, 2023) — While industry providers raise prices, restrict customers, and shrink service areas, Magellan Jets is leveraging its strong and stable business model to introduce a series of program enhancements, positioning their customer-focused private aviation solutions for the most client value in 2023 and beyond. Magellan’s asset-light business model, consistent profitability, and continuous 35% year-over-year revenue growth uniquely position it to make these client-focused changes while offering aggressive rates 20-40 percent below its leading competitors.

“As a customer-first company, we’re excited to provide more value across our entire portfolio and offer our guests the strongest private aviation solutions,” said Magellan Jets CEO and founder Joshua Hebert. “The private aviation market has opened back up, and Magellan’s client-centric program and robust infrastructure enable us to make these pivots on behalf of our customers.”

Included in its program changes, now in effect, are:

Lower hourly flight rates across all Jet Card programs and Memberships

Lower initiation and renewal dues on its Private Jet Membership programs

The re-introduction of Magellan's popular entry-level Light Jet Card

The addition of Guaranteed Wi-Fi on Magellan's industry-leading Phenom 300 Jet Card

“These changes represent our commitment to helping customers navigate the evolving private aviation marketplace as trusted advocates,” said Magellan Jets President and co-founder Anthony Tivnan. “Our operational stability, our efficiencies, investments in our supply chain, and our expanded network of partners and vendors all combine to allow us to reduce expenses while simultaneously passing savings on to our customers. Factor in the recent drop in jet fuel prices, and the value for Magellan’s guests is extraordinary.”

The ability to move swiftly and pivot to market demands has kept Magellan competitive and profitable for the past decade while enabling them to maintain their programs when others suspended operations. Magellan has seen high client satisfaction as a result—customer retention rates have been above 90 percent year over year, with an average 2023 Trip Perfection Rating of 93 percent.

enhancements across all programs

Magellan has not only updated its Jet Card Ownership program to feature more competitive rates but has also reintroduced its Light Jet Card to complete their lineup of one category-inclusive and one jet-specific option for each aircraft class. The Light Jet Card utilizes Magellan’s network of small-cabin, short-range aircraft to provide the best value for short-hop fliers; like all Magellan Jet Cards, the Light Jet Card features zero blackout days, rate locks up to 18 months, fixed-rate travel within the contiguous U.S. as well as the Caribbean, and the lowest daily minimums in the industry.

Magellan continues to offer the Phenom 300 Jet Card as its premium light jet option—and in response to demand from the resurgent business aviation community, the company will now guarantee Wi-Fi on this card at all levels of hourly investment.

As more businesses get back to flying private, Magellan has positioned its Explorer and Explorer100 Private Jet Memberships as the perfect solutions to prepare organizations for their return to the forefront. The ideal supplemental lift tools, both membership programs now feature lower annual dues and more competitive hourly rates, while the initial investment for Explorer100 has been reduced.

“As more private fliers diversify their aviation portfolios, we’ve seen that fixed pricing, service consistency, ease of scheduling, and guaranteed backup & recovery are what they’re searching for,” said Tivnan. “Being able to consistently deliver on those benefits without a large up-front investment is what makes Explorer and Explorer100 the perfect warranty for the aircraft owner or corporate flight department.”
