by BA Staff

An option to substitute high value private jet ownership finally gets addressed today with the launch of Baron Eagle, India’s first “Global Jet Card”.

This “By Invitation only” membership program will offer Individuals and Corporates all the benefits of owning a large fleet of Aircraft depending on their mission requirement at a fraction of the ownership cost and will allow its members to fly private to most international destinations. Baron Eagle is a solution for all those who wish to own an aircraft for their utility and business applications, now without the cost of aircraft ownership and without the hassles of the management, maintenance and compliance obligations that comes along with the ownership.

Internationally, Jet cards provide guaranteed access to business jets at reasonable hourly rates. Jet cards are prepaid cards where a set amount is deposited against a specified number of flying hours based on various aircraft requirements. The balances are adjusted based on the usage over a period of time.

Mr. Rajeev Wadhwa, Chairman & CEO, Baron Luxury and Lifestyles Pvt. Ltd. said

“By launching India’s first Global Jet Card, we aim to redefine ownership of a private aircraft. With the dollar value touching all-time high it may not be the appropriate time to buy an aircraft. However, Baron Eagle Membership provides an ideal choice for customers to avail all the benefits of owning an aircraft at a fraction of ownership cost”

Baron Eagle provides all the benefits of a jet card but has added unique functionality whereby it provides the most flexible program across various aircraft types including rotary and fixed wing aircraft. The program enables its members assured availability even when they travel abroad and will take care of their private flying needs internationally. Further, the card has been designed with flexibility of transferability, is refundable and can be used as corporate/individual gift for business and personal needs.

Baron Eagle membership is available in three categories, namely Baron Platinum Membership, Baron Gold Membership and Baron Silver Membership.
