Doug Gollan of Private Jet Card Comparisons, an indispensable resource for private aviation news and updates, has highlighted Magellan Jets’ recent program enhancements in an article posted on the site this week.
“Fewer peak days, shorter call-outs, and shorter daily minimums, plus more international destinations with fixed one-way pricing. Plus, if your needs change, deposits are now refundable. You’re not dreaming. It’s part of a wide revamp by Magellan Jets of its Jet Card and Membership programs,” writes Gollan.
The sweeping enhancements, announced this week, include adding the new funds-on-account Explorer100 Private Jet Membership as well as a number of features designed to help guests fly with greater freedom, flexibility, assurance, and certainty than ever before. Magellan has lowered daily minimums to just one hour on light and mid-size jets, dropped callout times to 48 hours with the flexibility to fly with as little as 24 hours’ notice, and increased our Primary Service Area to cover the entire contiguous 48 United States. We’ve also given Explorer100 Members and Jet Card Owners the ability to exercise a refund clause for the remaining funds on their accounts in the event that market changes force them to reconsider their private aviation investment—a great tool for clients who want to risk-proof their private jet travel against economic uncertainty.
Magellan Jets President and co-founder Anthony Tivnan spoke with Gollan about the new programs and features:
“When we started making changes based on the market last Fall, we asked our customers and salespeople to be patient. We told them our goal was that the changes wouldn’t be permanent,” Magellan Jets President Anthony Tivnan tells Private Jet Card Comparisons.
Of the revamp, he adds, “We’ve been working on it for a few months, speaking to customers, getting feedback. The market has settled down. It hasn’t normalized, but as we looked toward the end of the year, we see competitors still taking away, and we wanted to add value.”
Despite increased prices and tighter rules and policies, Magellan Jets has seen a 120% increase in new jet card customers year-to-date, Tivnan says.
Tivnan and Gollan go on to discuss Magellan’s full suite of private aviation solutions, as well as the enhancements to daily minimums, callout times, peak days, and the addition of fixed rates within Europe.
