Sentient Jet, a part of Directional Aviation Capital, is offering three new limited edition jet cards to tie in with the holiday season, beginning 24 November and running until the end of the year.

Each card has its own winter theme: Slope Style; Sea and be Scene; and Vintage Skyline. Card holders will receive $3,500 worth of Sentient flight credit and a complimentary $5,000 gift card, which can be spent at one of Sentient’s hotel partners.

Sentient Jet’s 25-Hour Jet Cards are available across the light, mid-size, super mid-size and heavy weight categories. The pricing for a 25-hour flight card (including fuel surcharge and tax) on the newest aircraft available in the market is as follows:

Light jet: $139,500
Mid-size jet: $186,775
Super mid-size jet: $249,275
Heavy jet: $350,325

“The holiday season is historically one of our strongest times of the year for private jet travel and based on current bookings we anticipate a significant spike this year compared to last holiday season,” said Andrew Collins, president of Sentient Jet.

“As the industry continues to see resurgence, we are excited to provide our card holders with unique and exclusive benefits on top of our core flexible and sensible private aviation offerings.”

For the first year, Sentient card holders are guaranteed a price freeze on hourly rates and fuel surcharges, as well as a 15 per cent discount on hourly pricing for qualifying travel.

An year-on-year increase of 28 per cent is predicted by Sentient Jet from December to February. The company also projected its top 10 busiest US airports for the holiday season, which is as follows:

1. West Palm Beach, Florida
2. Naples, Florida
3. Houston, Texas
4. Aspen, Colarado
5. Dallas, Texas
6. Salt Lake City, Utah
7. Miami, Florida
8. Las Vegas, Nevada

Sentient Jet offers a wide-range of aircraft models in its fleet, from the Learjet 45, capable of carrying seven passengers, to the Gulfstream G650, which can hold a maximum of 16 passengers.
