How Sentient Jet has perfected flying private… with peace of mind.

As the lifeguard stands begin their fall migration to offseason storage, winter travel plans slowly creep into our collective psyches. Thankfully, there have never been more ways to jet set to and from Nantucket. One aviation company serving the island, however, has dedicated the last twenty years to truly perfecting the private jet experience. With access to more than 1,100 aircraft of all classes and sizes, Sentient Jet has soared over the competition, becoming one of the most highly regarded private aviation companies in the country. What’s its secret? Here’s a hint: It’s no bigger than a business card.

Back in 1999, Sentient Jet revolutionized the private jet game by introducing the first-ever jet card, allowing Cardholders to book flexible flights to most any location and pay by the hour. Think of the Sentient Jet Card as a golden ticket that allows Cardholders to book their travel with fixed hourly rates—starting at $137,975 for twenty-five hours— through a simple mobile app, thus opening up a world of possibility to explore beyond Nantucket.


Part of the benefits of being a Sentient Jet Cardholder is enjoying highly curated experiences once you land. The Sentient Jet Card opens up unparalleled access to private art shows and exclusive events such as the renowned (RED) Auction at Art Basel in Miami. For those with more of a taste for fine food than fine art, Sentient Jet also creates culinary adventures such as the annual “Derby Day Breakfast” at the Kentucky Derby in Louisville with its inaugural brand ambassador, celebrity chef Bobby Flay. These are just some of the many ways that Sentient Jet serves its Cardholders by land and by sky.

And when it comes to Nantucket, Sentient Jet isn’t about quick touch-and-go service on and off the island. The company is committed to working on the ground to help lift the community. In August, for instance, Sentient Jet served as a top-tier sponsor of the Tim Russert Summer Groove, benefiting the local Boys and Girls Club. “Nantucket is a very popular destination for our Cardholders, and we are constantly looking for meaningful ways to get involved with the island’s community,” said Andrew Collins, Sentient Jet’s president and CEO. “We look forward to deepening our relationship with the Nantucket Boys and Girls Club.” Indeed, Sentient Jet has already committed to supporting the club’s efforts heading into winter at the Nantucket Stroll. And when the holidays do roll around, the Sentient Jet Card might just make the perfect gift to getaway.
