WEYMOUTH, MA – Sentient Flight Group, one of the leading private aviation companies in the United States, is celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary. Since pioneering the membership approach to private jet travel in 1999, the company established itself as a private aviation leader by offering service, quality, flexibility and value to its clients. Through its three primary business units – Sentient Jet Membership, Sentient Charter, and the AvBuy purchasing division – each of which is growing and profitable, Sentient Flight Group serves over 5,000 customers annually.
“Now more than ever, individuals and corporations are choosing the flexibility and value of the Sentient Jet Membership and Charter programs to meet their private travel needs”, said Steven Hankin, chief executive officer of Sentient Flight Group. “For 10 years we have built our reputation on providing our clients access to high-quality aircraft with a relentless commitment to service and safety. Since our programs do not require long-term capital investment and are free from the risk of depreciating assets, Sentient is extremely well positioned to continue our strong track record of growth.”
To continue to meet the needs of its clients, Sentient recently announced two enhancements to its industry–leading Membership Program: “Sentient Network Pricing” and “Sentient Membership Plus”:
• Sentient has built a network of aircraft with significant scale that now includes more than 150 carefully selected certified operators that meet the company’s strict standards. As the largest aircraft charter procurement business in the nation, Sentient has built deep and long standing relationships within this operator network allowing the company to secure advantaged access to high-quality aircraft and also create valuable savings for its clients. With the Network Pricing feature, the Membership Program’s fixed hourly rates are now the maximum rates a Member will pay. When lower costs can be achieved through optimizing itineraries within the network, those savings are shared directly with the Member as a Program benefit.
• Membership Plus provides the same guaranteed availability and flexibility to choose jet size and category by trip as the company’s traditional Membership product, but offers a 5% discount on all hourly rates in exchange for a $150,000 commitment over a two-year period. Membership Plus also offers several additional benefits, such as a guaranteed rate lock for the two-year life of the card, no surcharges on designated Peak Travel Days, and a reduction in daily flight time minimums for light and mid jets. In addition to the guaranteed 5% discount, Membership Plus also provides access to Network Pricing.
