NetJets Europe, has sold its 3,000th charter card since the programme - dubbed Private Jet Card - was introduced by the Lisbon, Portugal-based operator six years ago. NetJets says it has added 150 cards to its tally already this year, bringing its total of card customers to more than 870. This number represents more than 50% of NetJets customer base and 23% of its flight traffic. Around 90% of cardholders renew or graduate to fractional ownership, the company says, adding that prices for the card start at €131,000 ($190,000) for 25h flying time on a light jet such as a Cessna Citation Bravo or Hawker 400XP.


Austria's AvconJet has taken delivery of its fourth Cessna Citation CJ2+ light jet, bringing the Vienna-based charter operator's fleet to 12, including a Bombardier Learjet 45, a Challenger 300 a Dassault Falcon 2000EX and a Gulfstream GV.
