“[New billionaires in fast-growing countries] have to buy longer-range airplanes. If you’re flying from Mongolia to Nigeria, it’s either a three-day journey flying commercial or a nine-hour flight on your jet.”
Jet Card Offers Free Hours
Boston-based Magellan Jets is offering two free hours of flight time with the purchase of a 25-hour jet card for the Hawker 800XP. The company, which does not own or operate aircraft, offers flights with 10 hours’ notice and does not bill for repositioning or assess fuel surcharges. Card membership includes standard catering and VIP ground transportation. The two-free-hours deal applies for a “limited time,” but no expiration date has been announced.
