Arizona-based Paradise Jets debuts new membership program
Paradise Jets, the Mesa, Arizona-based private aviation business specializing in the buy, sell, charter, consultation, maintenance and management of private jets, has debuted the Destination Club — a two-tier program that allows jet setters to reap the financial benefits and freedoms of private travel.
DEEPER DIVE: 3 key business reasons to own a jet
The Destination Club offers two distinct approaches to the private aviation industry’s costliest aspects — ownership and chartering — by offering cost-saving alternatives.
Option #1: Co-Ownership
The Destination Club co-ownership option is unlike any other traditional ownership program because owners do not pay monthly fees or have any hidden costs. Rather, owners purchase a share and are not required to fund any element of the operation, while also receiving profit distributions for the revenue activity of their jet.
Other than the capital to purchase a share, the burden of the full cost of ownership is paid by the Destination Club, not amongst the co-owners. Other shared or co-ownership programs are costly for private owners looking for solutions to keep the costs of jet ownership down while also mitigating risk and capitalizing on their investment. The Destination Club co-ownership option solves both of these problems.
Private flyers who are members of the Destination Club can divide ownership of their jet up to six ways. Destination Club shareholders only pay the capital for the jet and an exclusive discounted hourly rate for operations of the machine. In return, shareholders receive perks including:
- 16 exclusive flight days per year
- Flight access to any of Paradise Jets’ destinations
- The option to purchase additional flight days
- Profits from the chartering of their jet
- Tax advantages
Option #2: Block Chartering
Additionally, The Destination Club provides a flexible block chartering option for frequent private travelers that love the freedoms of private aviation but are not interested in jet ownership.
The Destination Club block chartering members fly to some of the world’s most exciting locations at a heavily discounted hourly rate while enjoying all of the luxury benefits of Paradise Jets white glove concierge service. By being more flexible with their travel dates and times, Destination Club block chartering members enjoy deep savings on hourly operations, in addition to:
- Ability to pre-purchase access to 5 day flight blocks
- 30% or greater cost savings compared to other charter programs
- Gaining access to wholesale pricing
- Massive flight flexibility
- Access to multiple categories of jets
Due to the increasingly turbulent environment of commercial travel, Paradise Jets asserts now is the ideal time to launch the Destination Club.
“The private jet audience is becoming less willing to commit to the time and emotional cost of even first-class commercial travel,” said Jamie Thomas, CEO of Paradise Jets. “With the Destination Club, we’ve come as close as you can with ‘Having your cake and eating it, too.’ The Club allows Paradise Jets to handle the operations while shareholders and charterers enjoy the benefits and freedoms of private aviation.”
