BOCA RATON, Fla., March 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — JetASAP, the only truly live commission-free private aircraft marketplace connecting flyers directly to charter operators, today announces their latest charter activity report. February shows no signs of slowing down as the company received 1,969 quotes sent to flyers through the app. As aircraft have become more available, the company has experienced an increase in quotes for both the light jet and mid jet categories.
Charter operators’ overall hourly rates decreased two percent from January to February to now make an overall 10 percent decrease as expected from peak season travel. The turbo prop and mid jet category remain relatively unchanged with all-in hourly rates of $3,902 and $7,802, respectively. Light jets decreased three percent to $6,330, while heavy jets saw an overall increase of 11 percent to $13,881. The largest decrease was once again super mid jets of 10 percent to $10,855 per billable flight hour. All average hourly rates are based on occupied passenger flight hours from takeoff to landing and include fees and taxes.
South Florida topped the charts as the company’s leading travel destination for JetASAP members, specifically, Miami, followed by Palm Beach and Boca Raton for the month. On the flip side, number two’s “coolest” destination was ski country, with the most flights arriving Aspen then Bozeman and Sun Valley, equally. Coming in third for another top hotspot destination for private flyers was the very popular Caribbean, with most flights landing in Turks and Caicos with Nassau, Bahamas and Saint Martin following close behind.
