Sentient Jet Opens New Corporate Office in New York

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sentient Jet, a leading provider of private jet membership programs and retail charter services in the United States, announced today that it has opened new corporate offices in New York City. Sentient’s operations and command center will remain in Weymouth, Massachusetts, where the Company has been based for the past 10 years. Sentient’s New York and Massachusetts offices will continue to be supported by a network of regional offices in Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Pittsburgh, Providence and three in California (San Francisco, Los Angeles and Orange County).

“With the continued growth of our Membership and Charter programs the timing is right to open an office in the New York market,” said Sentient CEO Steven Hankin. “With this new corporate office, our operations center in Massachusetts, and our multiple regional offices, we are uniquely positioned to provide the best possible services to our client base across the country. As the private jet market moves away from the fractional ownership model towards our unique offering, we are continuing to expand our Membership and Charter sales teams and will open offices in additional markets as appropriate.”

Since pioneering the membership approach in 1999, Sentient Jet has been a leader in private aviation offering innovative, flexible products that deliver real value. In today’s market, Sentient has better and more practical solutions for private jet travel today – with competitive rates, freedom from the depreciating asset risk of fractional ownership, and a renowned commitment to safety and service.

Sentient’s Membership and Membership Plus programs offer a superior product to fractional jet ownership and fractional jet cards with access to premium executive-class aircraft with guaranteed response time of as little as ten hours anywhere in the continental United States. In addition to competitive pricing with rates that are 10 – 30% below other national programs, both programs offer additional savings potential with Network Pricing. With this benefit, Sentient works to beat their guaranteed maximum hourly rates on every flight by utilizing the breadth of their certified operator network to find the most cost-effective options. Sentient Charter is built off of the company’s superb reputation for service and safety and offers clients expert solutions for specific itineraries, including complex road shows, international travel, and large group commercial charter.
