Sentient Jet, the inventor of jet cards, achieved 60% year over year growth and ended 2020 with $450 million in jet card sales. As with most other private aviation companies, Sentient saw a large influx of new customers who want to travel but are keen to avoid commercial aviation during the pandemic. In 2020 Sentient Jet saw 2/3 of its jet card purchases come from new clients compared to only 1/3 pre-COVID.
The pricing starts at $5,891 per hour for a Sentient light jet card, on a plane that carries up to six passengers. These all-inclusive hourly rates are locked-in for 12 months and there’s guaranteed availability with 10 hours’ notice.
Sentient Jet also just reached $100 million in total mobile transactions and is projecting that 25% of total sales in 2021 will come from mobile transactions. Their dedicated app, which is available on both Apple and Android platforms, offers real-time booking and 24/7communication with the command center.
“The encouraging demand for private aviation from new customers, and in particular for Jet Cards that provide flight time for multiple trips, indicates that travelers are making a long-term commitment to flying private and using it as a utility rather than a lifestyle amenity,” said Andrew Collins, CEO of Sentient Jet.
