Three Flexible Private Jet Card Programs
What defines the best private jet card program? We believe it is the ability and freedom to fly on your schedule and in the aircraft of your choice. NICHOLAS AIR offers three Jet Card Membership options for private flyers who prefer a minimum upfront investment with access to the fleet. As a Member, you’ll enjoy fixed hourly rates and be able to replenish your Jet Cards at any time with no long-term commitment, no matter which program you choose.
“What really sets NICHOLAS AIR apart is the professionalism and customer service. The staff and crew pay close attention to my needs and give me complete peace of mind that my travels will go smoothly wherever the destination.”

JET CARD FAQ
What is a Jet Card?
A Private Jet Card offers you the ability to deposit a set amount of funds to secure hours in your desired aircraft at a fixed hourly rate. You have the option to purchase blocks of hours in a specific aircraft (BLUE Card) or make a deposit of funds that you'll use to access all the aircraft in our fleet if your travel requires a variety of trip types (RISE Card & LITE Card). Regardless of the program type, interchange between aircraft is an available option, and your funds and hours never expire.
How much does a Jet Card cost?
The largest factors that determine the cost of your program are the size of your deposit, the aircraft selection, and the aircraft's hourly rate. For example, our BLUE Card program is best suited for Members flying in the same aircraft for many of their trips. The RISE Card program allows for more interchangeability if you need different aircraft for multiple trip types. A BLUE Card Member typically joins by pre-purchasing 30 or more hours in their selected aircraft. A RISE Card Member typically joins by depositing $200K or more, and their flight costs are deducted from this amount each time they fly, based on their aircraft type.
Is a Jet Card right for me?
We designed these three jet card programs with all types of private flyers in mind. If you find yourself flying anywhere from 15 to 120 hours per year, we can certainly tailor a program to your specific needs. Your personal sales representative will also be able to answer any questions you may have about joining the NICHOLAS AIR family.
Where can I fly with a Jet Card?
The NICHOLAS AIR service area includes the Continental United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. With access to over 9,000 airports in the U.S. and many more in our other service areas, you enjoy the flexibility of landing that much closer to your destination.
Which aircraft are available in the Jet Card program?
NICHOLAS AIR has a dedicated fleet of aircraft for our Jet Card Programs that has an average aircraft age of under five years. Our fleet consists of the Phenom 100, Citation CJ3+, Phenom 300, Citation Latitude, and Challenger 350 Series jets. Additionally, no matter what program you choose, you have the option to interchange aircraft when needed.
Will my hours or deposit expire?
Unlike other private aviation providers, neither your hours nor your deposit will ever expire. Some restrictions may apply, and your Personal Account Manager will always be available to answer any questions you may have about the remaining funds in your account.
Is there an hourly or daily minimum for a NICHOLAS AIR Jet Card?
The daily minimum is 1 hour, inclusive of taxi time.
How is taxi time calculated?

How much notice is needed to secure an aircraft?
Notice time differs from program to program, but for the majority of RISE and BLUE Card programs, we require only 24 hours’ notice. For LITE Card programs, we require 120 hours’ notice.
