Sentient Looks for Record Year as It Goes International

Directional Aviation’s jet card division, Sentient Jet, looks to have its best year in terms of flight volume at the same time it expands its programs for international travelers. Sentient president and CEO Andrew Collins said the company’s flight volume this summer is expected to exceed pre-pandemic seasonal volumes by 30 to 50 percent.

This growth is “a trend we anticipate will continue into the fall as our jet card owners keep embracing private aviation as a utility to travel safely,” Collins said, adding that 2021 “is shaping up to be our busiest year on record.”

Last month, Sentient launched a transatlantic program that offers its jet card owners guaranteed availability for one-way trips between New York and London. Now, the company is introducing guaranteed hourly pricing to worldwide destinations that leverages Sentient’s London office. Combined, the two programs allow Sentient card owners to fly direct from New York to London at a fixed rate, and to continue to other European destinations such as Geneva or Moscow at a guaranteed rate on a light, midsize, super-midsize, or large-cabin business jet.

“Sentient Jet’s continued international expansion and guaranteed pricing to international territories will offer our jet card owners a more seamless way to fly globally this summer as the world opens up,” Collins added.
