Demand for future flights remains strong with Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers expecting to spend $427,569 on private flights in the next 12 months
MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, July 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The cost of flying privately continued to increase during the second quarter of 2022; however, demand remains strong, according to the latest research by private aviation buyer’s guide Private Jet Card Comparisons.
The average hourly cost of fixed/capped rate jet cards with guaranteed availability increased 6% during Q2 after a 5% jump in Q1.
Since December 2020, hourly jet card prices have been 28% higher and now average $10,770.
At the same time, private flyers expect to fly privately 39.7 hours in the next 12 months, in line with the trailing 12-month average of 41.7 hours. That translates to an average spend of $427,569 per subscriber.
The number of subscribers who expect to need 75 hours or more of private jet access in the coming year remained virtually flat at 10.7%, compared to 10.3% in Q1 2022.
“Prices keep going up, but so far, that hasn’t impacted future demand,” said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. “Subscribers, particularly those traveling on business or who have firm plans where they are going, continue to tell us that despite the increased costs of private air travel, poor and undependable airline service, plus reduced flights to secondary cities means they will continue to fly privately.”
Overall, the average hourly rate for fixed/capped rate jet card programs is now $10,770. Taking out turboprops, the jet rate is $10,955 per hour.
