Touring colleges is already expensive. This new service offers a $25,000 luxury version.

The ability to go on lengthy road trips and tour a slew of colleges has been made to seem like a normal part of the college application process. Really, though, it’s a privilege: In many cases, families must be able to take multiple days off from work, and also pay for transportation, lodging, and food in every single college town they visit.

Magellan Jets, St. Barth Properties Add St. Barth Package

After Hurricane Irma devastated the island of St. Barth last year, Magellan Jets and St. Barth Properties have partnered up to help the island bounce back. Magellan Jets will serve as the preferred private jet provider to the island as travel to St. Barth picks up approaching the holiday season and beyond.

Celebrating their 10th year in business in 2018, Magellan Jets has regularly flown to St. Barth, so the partnership with the team of villa specialists at St. Barth Properties was an ideal fit, the airline said.

New private jet service for ultra-rich prospective students has noses out of joint

The college tour is something of a tradition for American families. Parents drive their teenagers from campus to campus hoping to find the ideal academic institution.

But for the ultra-rich, there is an alternative to spending hours on the American highways – albeit at an eye-watering price.

Companies are now offering luxury college tours by private jet with clients being flown around the country, in some cases accompanied by a dedicated admissions counsellor.

Hall of Fame, but it places it in a group of only 193 companies from the 5,000 companies on the 2018 list that have ever achieved this.

Anthony Tivnan On The Past Ten Years Of Private Aviation

It’s hard to imagine, looking back 10 years ago from today, that the US was on the horizon of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. To say that the past decade in the private aviation market has been a roller-coaster ride is an immense understatement. The aftermath of the downturn has resulted in a variety of changes for aviation companies, including shifts in business models, businesses shutting their doors and overall consolidation. Additionally, we can’t forget today’s most popular buzzword in private travel: Uberization.

Safe, Specific, Superior Service : Magellan Jets

Just a decade ago, Joshua Hebert established Magellan Jets with the aim of changing the private travel experience through a purely private, personalized customer approach and unwavering commitment to safety. Hebert began his career in investment banking on Wall Street at Shearson Ledman Brothers, moving on to Sand Brothers and then Paine Weber (today UBS). He subsequently transitioned to advertising, leading the marketing team at America City Business Journals.

Super Bowl Fans Opt For Private Jet To Avoid Cold

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Minneapolis has many charms, but with Super Bowl week temperatures as low as minus-7 degrees, some visitors are in no mood to stick around to discover them.

The biggest boom market for the big game revolves around ways to help wealthy fans get in and out of town as soon as possible after the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles do battle Sunday.

The Friendly (Private) Skies

The new year initiates a barren stretch of winter when to escape the monotonous gloom, our heads float to the clouds — or above them — soaring away in a jet to a beach somewhere warm. In luxury.

For the bona fide jet-setters, charter flight companies such as Boston-based Magellan Jets have made the plane-procuring process as easy as pie — in the sky. Still, there’s confusion among those looking to book a holiday in the sun and sand.  The steel drums of the Caribbean may be calling, but vacationers remain reticent to commit.

Best Charter Of The City


Like the original globe circler for which it is named. Magellan Jets forged new routes in international travel. The Quincy-based aviation expert leads efficiency and luxury in private jet-setting with its top fleet of aircraft – like the $12,800-per hour Gulfstream G450 that seats 16 and sleeps six, where premium catering packages rise to $90,000 for 200-hour memberships. A new Bespoke program, announced alongside a brick-and mortar membership center on Nantucket, lets frequent fliers entirely customize their own jet card online, while parents trotting teens on university campus tours can opt for 10-hour increments (starting at $43,500), including arranged meet-and-greets with high-profile alumni. 

The only uncensored guide on creating an environment that engages millennials you’ll ever need

I’m a Gen-Xer who has raised millennials alongside my peers, and I understand how they’re different and where some of the departures come from. I was taught early on that hard work meant long hours to create opportunities. Millennials, though, take the task at hand and find the smartest route to get the job done most efficiently instead, saving what they value most: time.

I’ve heard so much about how millennials should be managed. It’s an important topic, as the majority of our employees fall into that demographic. But making them feel a part of the company isn’t about “managing through” their perceived weaknesses. It’s about understanding their strengths and creating an environment they can thrive in.

Living the High Life

If Tom Brady & Co. do their part, Patriots fans can soar in style with up to 12 friends to Minnesota for Super Bowl LII thanks to Magellan Jets’ Super Bowl package ($66,750 for 6-7 people; $157,425 for 1o-13 people). Not only does the Quincy-headquartered company provide transportation to and from the game, but there’s also tailgate-in-the-sky service complete with your game-day favorites and decorated in the style of your preferred team—so lots of Flying Elvis, obviously. This year, passengers can also enjoy Triple Eight Distillery’s Notch 15-year whiskey (only available on-site at the Nantucket distillery) during the Super Bowl flights.

Magellan Jets’ Corporate Membership Program Removes the Financial Guesswork from Your Private Aviation Budget

The new Corporate Membership Program from Magellan Jets promises to please one particular member of a company’s C-suite, even if he or she doesn’t take a single flight aboard a business jet provided through the program. “This is a CFO’s dream aviation solution,” says Anthony Tivnan, the president of Magellan Jets, a membership and on-demand charter company based just outside Boston.

The One Way Ticket Show; Magellan Jets President & Co-Owner, Anthony Tivnan

Anthony Tivnan, President and Co-Owner of Magellan Jets, was solidified as a major player in the world of private aviation long before the company’s launch in 2008.  In 2002, a novice to the aviation industry, Anthony made his mark at Jets International. As a member of the sales team, he was quick to become a leader and mentor. After years of leadership and record-breaking sales history, Anthony was eventually appointed as the Executive Vice President. He also managed their retail sales department and sales teams in both Massachusetts and New York City.


What’s New With Private Jet Cards? To Start, Amazon, Bitcoin, Superyacht Charters and WiFi

Private jet cards sellers say their programs are the closest you can get to the experience of owning your own jet or a fractional share of a private aircraft without the commitments of doing so. The rationale is since each card program has its own sourcing standards and policies, you get a more consistent experience than on-demand charter. Brokers will tell you that you pay more for jet cards, although in my research I haven’t found that to necessarily be true. Of course, there is nothing to stop jet card members from shopping specific trips with brokers and getting the best of both worlds. Perhaps that’s why the number of companies selling jet cards keeps multiplying, with over 30 by my count, more than half launched in the past decade.

Magellan Jets Rolls Out Multiple 4th Quarter Jet Card Membership Offers

Promotionally minded Magellan Jets is rolling out a number of promotions valid now through December 31, 2017. The jet card broker also says it has enhanced its Bespoke Individual Membership feature on its website enabling users to “create” their own jet card. Magellan recently introduced a new corporate jet card program targeting businesses that need over 100 hours per year in charters. That initiative was first reported here by Private Jet Card Comparisons. All Magellan jet card products have guaranteed availability and rates.


On-Demand Charter Company Magellan Jets Gets Super Personal

In a conference room at Magellan Jets’ headquarters in downtown Quincy, Mass., just south of Boston, president Anthony Tivnan recalls how he and CEO Joshua Hebert first ventured into the private-aviation business with a web-based charter-­brokerage company—and how that company went through some name changes. “We started that business around 16 years ago,” recalls Tivnan. “We called it Bid Jet Charter. But think about a couple Boston guys calling around to prospective clients saying, ‘Hey, it’s Anthony and Joshua from Bid Jet Charter.’ People would say, ‘What? Chowder? What are you talking about, Chowder?’ We decided, all right, that’s not working.” Bid Jet Charter soon became Charter Auction, but that didn’t help much. “Eventually,” Tivnan said, “ became the name.” (Companies called Charter Auction and are operating today, but they have no connections to Tivnan and Hebert or the company they founded.)

Magellan Jets To Launch New Corporate Membership Jet Card Program


Boston-based Magellan Jets says revenues grew by nearly 120% over the past two years powered by travel from business accounts. The new programs provide access to Light Jet up to ultra-long haul Heavy Jets. A key benefit is the ability to use multiple aircraft on the same day and the target customer is looking for 100 hours of flight activity annual.
