XO - A Better Way To Fly

Sep 17, 2021

 

Not too long ago, if you wanted to fly on a private jet with guaranteed availability, your choices were fairly limited. You could own and maintain your own private plane, you could charter an entire jet as needed, or purchase a fractional share. Even for high-net-worth individuals, none of those are the most cost-effective or practical options.

Yet, in recent years, the private aviation market has been booming. In fact, according to Knight Frank’s 2017 Wealth report, in the 10-year period from 2006-2016, the number of private jets in the US has increased by 34%. However, the majority of that growth can be found in alternatives to whole aircraft ownership, such as fractional ownership becoming increasingly popular around the world. 

With fractional ownership, you are actually buying a share of a plane and typically have to make a three to five-year commitment. Think timeshare in the sky, and like a timeshare, fractional jet ownership comes with similar hassles. On the upside of fractional private jet ownership are the shared expenses, which can lower costs significantly. But of course, with those shared costs also comes shared use, which can invite a whole set of issues that can make this option seem a lot less attractive. Most fractional jet ownership contracts come with many restrictions, most of which owners only become aware of after they sign!
