The founders of fractional operator Jet It are taking their company built around the HondaJet overseas to Europe and Asia and calling it JetClub. JetClub will operate under a different business model—as a membership-based travel service in Southeast Asia and India, and as a hybrid-fractional share company in Europe.
“After experiencing success and a positive reception to Jet It in North America, we believed we could create a global leader in affordable private travel solutions, and the launch of JetClub is the next step towards that goal,” said Jet It co-founder Vishal Hiremath.
Led by Hiremath and Glenn Gonzales, both former Honda Aircraft sales executives, Jet It will provide service and jet access to JetClub members traveling in North America and vice versa to Jet It owners traveling abroad. “We plan to replicate Jet It’s success in Europe and Asia with the same high level of customer service excellence we are known for,” Gonzales said. “Members/owners can call our international concierge and we will arrange transportation as they travel throughout these regions.”
As part of the expansion, Jet It/JetClub will take delivery of two more HondaJets, bringing the company’s combined HondaJet fleet to seven aircraft. Launched in 2018 in North Carolina, Jet It employs more than 50 and is on track to expand its fleet to double digits by the end of the year.
