Barriers to Entry
Traditional Jet Club memberships are quite costly in most cases. These high rates are outside the budget for most people, making utilizing charter services like these impractical.
On average, the upfront cost to become a Jet Club member is about $100,000. This is accompanied by dues which are a few thousand dollars a month on average.
To understand how we are making private flights cheaper, it is critical to understand several key differences between the operations of a commercial airline and a charter jet operation. These concerns revolve around the inefficiencies in the coordination between the charter companies and their customers.

Route Structure Differences

Airline Operations

Commercial airlines operate with greater efficiency because they utilize a hub-and-spoke structure. They move a large number of passengers through a central location, and disburse the travel to other central operating locations. This allows timely management of customers and high throughput. It also maintains all maintenance, cleaning, catering, and customer services in a central location. As more passengers are moved through point A to all other access points, this allows more efficiency and easier management. By extension, generating more revenue for the airline which aids in keeping costs low for the passengers.

Charter Jet Operations

On the other hand, charter jet operations do not have the luxury of scheduled departure times and centralized services. The “throughput” of passengers in a charter jet fleet is drastically reduced due to the inefficiencies created by their "on-demand" route structures. This leads to more work and higher costs. As a result, the charter companies have to pass these on to the customer in the form of high initiation fees, monthly dues, daily rates, and hourly rates.
