2013 Holiday Season Private Jet Bookings Up 70%

SentientPrivate jet company Sentient Jet says November and December 2013 bookings have increased by 70% over the 2012 holiday season.

Private jet bookings for the 2013 holiday season are up by more than 70% compared to last year. The most popular travel destinations include Aspen, New York and Palm Beach.

Sentient Jet president Andrew Collins said: “As reported after Sentient’s strong summer of sales, we expected a very significant holiday flying season and that’s exactly what we’re seeing.”

He added that this year’s holiday season bookings surpass 2011 and 2012 levels combined.

Travelers flying private to Aspen can also take advantage of exclusive Sentient Cardholder perks such as complimentary local ground transportation to/from Atlantic Aviation provided by Aspen Valet, a private half-day ski or snowboard lesson with an Aspen/Snowmass teaching pro, complimentary accommodations at the Little Nell, Aspen’s only 5-star and 5-Diamond hotel or a 90-minute customized facial or massage at the spectacular Remède Spa located at the St Regis Aspen.

Those coming to New York City for the holidays can also benefit from Cardholder perks at The Mark Hotel and Italian Wine Merchants.

In addition to increased flying, Sentient Jet is also seeing an increase in sales this holiday season of the promotional 20-Hour Holiday Jet Card. It will only be available through 2013 and comes with all the same features and benefits of the Sentient 25-Hour Jet Card, including access to Light, Mid, Super-Mid and Heavy aircraft and a one-year lock on both hourly rates and fuel surcharges.

“We’re seeing a positive reaction to the 20-Hour Holiday Jet Card offering as both an introductory-level card for new clients and as a holiday gift that current cardholders are buying for family, friends and business partners,” added Collins.
