Hong Kong based aviation services company Metrojet has launched the Asia Jet Card, a new service for high net worth individuals and companies to hire private aircraft to meet their unique transportation requirements. Asia Jet Card members are "entitled to superior availability and unparalleled access of ‘occupied’ flight time. Asia Jet Card members have unique access to Metrojet’s world class fleet of Gulfstream private jets. Metrojet, part of the Kadoorie Group led by Sir Michael Kadoorie, is Hong Kong’s only fully licensed business jet operator specializing in aircraft flight operations, management and comprehensive aircraft maintenance."

Card members, or whomever they designate, can simply call or email their dedicated member service representative to request a trip, specify their departure time, and any other special requirements they may have. Asia Jet promises that card members are guaranteed booking priority on the Asia Jet fleet, enjoy simple to understand pricing and the best availability in the region to hundreds of airports throughout Asia. The Asia Jet card offers prepaid access to the Asia Jet fleet of Gulfstream private jets. All flight services are operated by Metrojet, "the gold standard and the most experienced operator in Hong Kong."

One of Southeast Asia’s largest travel management companies, Asian Trails, has announced a new VIP ‘Concierge’ package of services. According to their announcement, the new services are "specifically designed for guests who would like to treat themselves to a once in a lifetime experience of traveling by private jet. By choosing to travel by private jet, guests can pre-book a departure time that is convenient to them from an airport of their choice, avoiding those inconvenient early or late starts! Our VIP personalized passenger handling service will also ensure that all check in formalities are handled smoothly and efficiently by-passing those lengthy check in, immigration and customs queues!"

The packages use six-seater Cessna Citation Mustang C-510 planes, operated by Bangkok-based VIP Jets and taking up to four passengers. Planes for larger groups can be arranged. There are several pre-packaged trips suggested on Asian Trails’ web site, or you can set your own itinerary. The cost for the planes is US$2,500 per hour, plus an overnight fee of $500 for the crew, if the trip involves an overnight stay.
