Tidal Jets charter brokerage launches in Washington DC


Tidal Jets, a new private jet brokerage firm, has launched in Washington DC, founded by three executives in their mid-20s.

Led by founder and CEO, Ethan Levy, the start-up pledges to “change the game”, by developing a cost-effective charter solution for passengers. The leadership team includes co-founder and executive vice president, Jonathan Downs and chief operating officer, Jacob Stepnowski.

Our journey began with a shared vision to make private jet travel more affordable, transparent, and accessible to a wider audience”, said  Levy. “We combined our passion for aviation, extensive industry knowledge, and dedication to exceptional client service to create Tidal Jets, a game-changer in the industry.”

The firm began from the founders’ previous experience in the private aviation charter sector, with the trio citing high pricing and “excessive fees” as being a driving factor to create a new solution.

Levy added that the firm has partnered with powdered hydration company, Liquid I.V to distinguish Tidal Jets from its competitors. Owned by Unilever, Liquid I.V. claims to use “smart hydration technology”, that surpasses the hydration effectiveness of water. Tidal Jets will offer this to its clients in flight.

“This is particularly beneficial for long-haul or transatlantic journeys, as it offers the perfect combination to stay hydrated before boarding, during mealtime, and after waking up prior to landing,” said Levy. “It helps reestablish balance and keeps passengers feeling refreshed for their upcoming plans.”.

Tidal Jets will hold a launch party in Miami on July 14th.
