On Friday night, Bang & Olufsen State Street in conjunction with Monika Dixon Public Relations held the Jumpjet Take Off Party. The event produced by Rachel De Marte with bites from Sugar Hills Bakery and hosted by Les Coney and Anthony Berg, served to create awareness for the Newport based startup.
Jumpjet is a membership-based service offering access to private jet flights at a price point comparable to the cost of first class commercial travel. The brainchild of pilot Will Ashcroft, Jumpjet was created to give travelers a more refined and overall luxurious travel experience.
It works like this: for a monthly fee, members have the ability to book seats on Jumpjet flights from any of the 40 cities to which Jumpjet flies.
HOW MUCH WILL THIS SET YOU BACK?
Jumpjet offers three options priced from $2,350 to $5,550 and for the more budget conscious a fourth option. The fourth option allows you to split the cost of the option you select with up to ten friends and/or family members. For a more detailed breakdown of packages visit their site.
SO BASICALLY? Jumpjet is like having your own private jet without the hassle of ownership. Who doesn't want that? - Victoria A. Olivares
