With Paramount Business Jets, you get a great range of choices in aircraft, flight options, and payment types

Private Jet Payment Types

Whole Ownership

With whole ownership, you buy the jet outright. This is an option that is only available to a tiny minority. In fact, the average wealth of a private jet owner is $1.5 billion.

Fractional Ownership

Instead of buying the entire aircraft, fractional ownership allows you to buy part of one.

Your portion means you have the right to fly the aircraft for a certain amount of hours per year. As a rough analogy, think of fractional ownership like owning a timeshare property.

Fixed-Rate Jet Cards

A pre-loaded jet card. By paying upfront, the cost will be deducted from your future flights.

Some customers like this approach when they have a set budget which they cannot exceed.

Debit Jet Card

These offer you a bit more flexibility with your flights and requests. The difference between fixed-rate jet cards and these is that debit jet cards do not have a set limit – for example, 25 hours. Instead, you can rack up flight hours as and when you need them.

On-Demand Jet Charter

Pay for your specific trip only. You don’t need to commit to full or partial ownership, nor pay any joining fees.

If you want the most cost-effective methods, you’ll want to consider a private jet card or on-demand charter. These allow you a great deal of flexibility. For example, if you choose an on-demand charter, you’ll only ever make a booking or payment when you need a specific flight. There are no membership or subscription fees. So, even if it’s a one-off private jet flight, you won’t incur any extra fees.

Unlike fractional ownership, there’s no pressure to use a certain amount of flight hours in a certain period of time. Plus, using an on-demand charter means you can handpick the type of flight you want – including a specific aircraft. And you can book your private flight on short notice.
