Posted on Tue, Mar 05,2013

MagellanMagellan Jets is a privately held company based in Quincy, Massachusetts, and provides charter broker services. Magellan Jets is a 5-year-old company founded in 2008 by Joshua Hebert, Anthony Tivnan, and Greg Belezerian.  Tom Harrison, President of DAS (an Omincom company), serves as Chairman of the Board. In 2012, Magellan Jets acquired SkyBridge Private Air, a premier charter broker which expands their presence on the west coast. They have quickly gained market share and the respect and confidence of the charter user community as well as charter provider companies.

Magellan Jets offers jet card programs as well as On-Demand charter. Their private jet cards include a 10-hour jet card and 25-hour jet cards (11 categories to choose from), as well as their Voyager Membership Program.  On-Demand charter is self-explanatory but offers unique pricing options for one-way or round trip flights. The card programs vary from a debit card format with access to numerous aircraft types, to a specific aircraft type at preset rate and flight hours. These different programs offer air travel options that include helicopters, turbo props, light, mid, super mid and large business jet aircraft and air ambulance services along with 24/7 worldwide concierge service. The average age of the fleet network is usually 7 years old or less.

Magellan Jets uses Wyvern and ARG/US (Aviation Research Group/United States), the world leaders in aviation safety research, as their independent, third party evaluators to verify compliance of all charter flights to ensure passenger safety. Magellan Jets verifies the air charter safety information from flight history of the aircraft operator and related insurance policies. Magellan Jets has exclusive access to the records and audits of every aircraft and flight crew, and Magellan Jets demands the highest standard of safety for each flight.  This is all closely monitored by their Flight Support and Compliance, which consist of pilots.  

In addition to being meticulous in regards to the safety of all of the operators’ aircraft, crews and maintenance, Magellan Jets offers their customers air ambulance service within air medical service, pet-friendly flights, ground transportation (if needed), and benefits from luxury partners such as Four Season’s Nevis, The W Hotel S. Beach, French Lick Golf Resort, Goldeneye, and Manhattan Motorcars, to name just a few.
