Mountain Aviation partners with MemberJets to offer single-seat fares
By Doug Storum — March 29, 2017
BROOMFIELD — Private jet-charter firm Mountain Aviation, based in Broomfield at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, is joining the Aviation Marketplace to offer single-seat rentals on its flights.
The marketplace, created by MemberJets LLC in Overland Park, Kan., lets its members access private jet services, who otherwise could not afford it, the company said in a statement released Wednesday.
The partnership expands the marketplace’s reach in Colorado and Idaho, offering seats on Mountain Aviation’s jets based in Aspen, Broomfield, Englewood, Fort Collins, Gypsum, Telluride and Vail, plus Boise and Hailey, Idaho.
“We’ve discovered a solution to help people love travel again,” said Ty Carter, MemberJets’ president. “It’s a win-win-win: A win for members, many of whom are able to access private jet travel for the first time; a win for operators, who are guaranteed profits with every flight and can expect increased lift; and a win for MemberJets, as our goal is to share our passion for private aviation.”
Individuals and corporations pay an annual fee of $250 to access the marketplace. MemberJets developed software that enables the company and its partnering operators to publish schedules, routes and pricing on an individual-seat basis.

You can hardly turn on the news today without hearing a story about a passenger who was booted from an overbooked flight, or who got into an altercation with an airline employee or other passengers, or how an airline cancelled multiple flights, leaving travelers stranded.
MemberJets is happy to be one of four new private-aviation options featured in BCA, Business & Commercial Aviation magazine's May issue.
