Jet Card Membership
Owning a private jet membership is like having your own in-house flight department. It gives you the power to control your schedule and make the most of your time. You’ll have access to more than 5,000 private jets that are ready to take you anywhere you need to go. Best of all, your Stratos jet card is supported by a company committed to providing a superior customer experience on the safest, most well maintained aircraft available.
The Stratos 25 Hour Jet Card is ideal for individuals and businesses that want the benefits of private aviation, without the hassle, expense and long-term commitment of aircraft ownership. This program offers the benefits of private aircraft ownership with a short-term obligation.
When the choice is no longer whether or not to fly privately, but rather how to do it, Stratos Jets is here to help provide the best solution for you. The simplicity that our fixed rate jet card brings to the booking process makes it so appealing to clients:
- A single upfront payment
- Fixed-rate pricing
- No more quotes to review or invoices to pay
- No additional aircraft maintenance, ownership or hangar fees
Additionally, with a jet card membership program, you’re guaranteed availability with as little as 10 hour’s notice, even during peak travel times. And when aircraft availability is scarce, you won’t have to pay for repositioning fees associated with getting the aircraft to your chosen departure point.
Basically, once you let your charter agent know when and where you want to travel, we will take care of the rest. This provides peace of mind and allows you to maintain your focus on the important things in life: your family and your business.

By choosing the aircraft category that best suits your typical private aviation needs, we can provide you with the best-suited aircraft in terms of range, speed, passenger limits and inflight amenities. There are many available aircraft models within each class, and we have access to more than 5,000 aircraft worldwide, which allows us to guarantee availability. Give us 10 hour’s notice and we’ll have a private jet ready for you at the airport of your choice.
Pricing for our private jet card membership is based on the class of aircraft chosen. The larger the class, the more the card costs. However, by securing a fixed-rate, you gain several financial advantages:
- Immune from fluctuating charter market prices
- Easy to manage your aviation expenditures
- No additional aircraft maintenance, crew or ownership fees
- No aircraft repositioning costs

When comparing on demand charter flights with jet card memberships, the former, in general, will usually be lower. However, the value of the jet card really shines through with non-standard routings. For example, let’s say we have a client booking a charter flight from Charleston International (CHS) to Bozeman Yellowstone International (BZN) for some outdoor recreation.
With a flight time of 4.9 hours in a super-midsize jet, it would cost a jet card member about $46,000. The on-demand price would be quite comparable. This is because BZN isn’t a commonly used airport and, as a result, the itinerary would likely incur additional repositioning fees. This helps illustrate how a private jet charter membership insulates the user from price fluctuations, whereas on-demand charters are dependent aircraft availability and positioning.
