One of the largest jet card companies, Sentient Jet is projecting 2022 revenue to reach $460MM, a 11.3% increase from 2021. The jet card provider also says from 35% to 40% of all Sentient Jet flights will be booked digitally during 2022, compared with just 15% of flights prior to the start of the pandemic in 2020.
Sentient is expecting further growth saying that with the wave of interest in Jet Cards over the past two years, the company sees private aviation jet owners going “asset light” to free themselves from the demands and costs of ownership, while still enjoying all of the benefits of flying private.
Customers Using Digital Bookings
Over several years, Sentient Jet has seen $300 million in flights booked digitally and expects to see $200 million in mobile transactions in 2022 alone. In 2022 the company rolled out its latest digital innovation, automated text-to-book, offering Jet Card owners complete autonomy to quote and book flights via text in 60 seconds with no human interaction required.
"Since launching our original mobile app to streamline booking in 2016, Sentient Jet has continued to evolve technologies to keep up with consumer demands,” says Andrew Collins, President and CEO of Sentient Jet, who is leading consumer-focused mobile technology in private aviation with the rollout of Sentient Jet’s AI-based Auto-Text-to-Book capability this year. “With demand for such technologies continuing to evolve, text-based commerce will pave the way for hospitality to invest in better efficiencies, and we’ll see more brands offering technologies that bring savvy travelers their way.
Sentient Jet projects that it will fly 80,500 passengers by year-end 2022.
More International Flights
Sentient Jet is also seeing a return to international destinations as borders continue to reopen across the globe. Sentient Jet is expecting more travel in large cabin aircraft from New York to points across Europe as the company has seen increases in the number of daily flights across the Atlantic.
