JetSmarter's July Newsletter
For the second issue of On The Fly, we’re introducing JetSmarter's new fleet of dedicated aircraft, announcing a new in-flight drink menu curated by Pernod Ricard, and recapping the sold-out Hublot World Cup Experience.
And a quick reminder: you can try JetSmarter's flight services as a non-member! Simply book flights in the JetSmarter app.
ARRIVING SOON: BOOKING ON DESKTOP
We've heard your feedback and are thrilled to announce that starting in August you will be able to book JetSmarter flights straight from your desktop. While we're continuously working to improve our app, we understand that a majority of you would like the option of booking travel from your computer. Stay tuned for the new website rollout!
OUR NEW FLEET HAS ARRIVED
We have officially on-boarded five fully dedicated, JetSmarter-branded Gulfstream IVs, with brand new interiors and five-star crews. Each aircraft is also equipped with fast and reliable 4G Wi-Fi; so, you can browse the web, access e-mail or stream videos with no interruption.
Our dedicated planes are already up in the air, flying between New York, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Vegas, and Oakland and expansion plans for 30 more within the next year are already underway.
In partnership with Pernod Ricard, we are now serving a selection of specially curated in-flight cocktails aboard most of our flights. Fliers can sit back and enjoy specialty cocktails and wines, courtesy of JetSmarter. Be sure to share your sky-high spirits on social media and tag @jetsmarter and
@pernodricardprestige so we can share the fun with our followers. Cheers!
Last month, we partnered with Hublot to offer you the ultimate ride to the World Cup. As part of this sold-out World Cup Hublot Experience, members flew private from Geneva to Moscow and enjoyed suite-level access to Brazil v. Costa Rica and Belgium v. Tunisia games.
The experience also included transportation in Russia, hotel accommodations, dining, and activities during the world's most prestigious soccer tournament. Take a look inside the decked-out interior of the Legacy 650 that flew between Moscow and Geneva to escort our passengers on the ultimate ride to the most anticipated sporting event of the year.
TIME TO JETSMARTER
As part of our partnership with Hublot, we have a limited number of Hublot JetSmarter watches available for purchase. These collectible timepieces are perfect for the time-savvy jetsetter.
As part of our monthly series, we’ll be highlighting members for their success and valued contributions to the JetSmarter community. We recently met with Sophisticated member, Paul Healey, who has been a member with us since 2014, and has flown 14 times just this year. Here’s what he has to say about JetSmarter:
Q: HOW DID YOU FIRST HEAR ABOUT JETSMARTER?
A: About four years ago, I watched an interview with Sergey on Bloomberg and became really interested in the program. In the first year that I was a member, JetSmarter was only offering the repositioning legs, but I didn’thave many chances to take advantage of them. Instead, I would charter here and there, but that got quite costly. At the end of my first year being a member, JetSmarter started offering shuttles between New York and Fort Lauderdale, and I happily renewed my membership, and then my wife joined the program as well.
Q: WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT JETSMARTER?
A: The “Create Your Own” option. Not only do we meet some wonderful people on the shared flights, but I see tremendous value in essentially chartering a heavy jet by just having to purchase a few seats. We love that we can control the departure time and airports and fly when it’s convenient for us. Most of the time, I’ll plan out my trips far enough in advance, and I’ll only have to purchase the two-seat minimum for my wife and I. We have never been on a flight and met someone that we did not like.
Q: HOW DOES JETSMARTER SUPPORT YOUR LIFESTYLE?
A: We have a home and a boat in the Florida Keys, and the shuttle option between NY and Florida has made trips to our vacation home much less painful than if we were to travel commercial. We also visit our daughter in Los Angeles and even got her a membership so she could visit us more often. I use JetSmarter for business travel as well and look forward to using it more in the future with the expansion of new routes.
Q: HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE JETSMARTER TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY?
A: I would describe it as a convenient program that allows you to utilize private jets for near the cost of a first-class ticket. Although it costs a little bit more than first-class, the convenience of going to an FBO has its advantages versus going to a busy commercial terminal.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ROUTE TO FLY?
A: Most of the time we fly Teterboro to Fort Lauderdale. Occasionally, we’ll go from White Plains to Opa Locka just to land closer to The Keys. Our daughter, who is also a member, lives in Los Angeles, and we also create flights from New York out to the west coast to see her.
Q: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCE AS A JETSMARTER MEMBER SO FAR?
A: One experience that stands out, in particular, is when a couple of friends and I had a charter lined up from Myrtle Beach. There was a mechanical issue with the aircraft, but you guys were able to get us a new plane within an hour and fifteen minutes of the original departure time, and it was a bigger aircraft. Honestly speaking, I’ve never had a bad experience. The pilots and crew are fantastic and extremely professional. All of the ground representatives are phenomenal and extremely helpful, and we’re always so excited to meet them at the FBO. We can’t say enough good things about the service.
Thanks for being a loyal member, Paul!
