Set Jet, Inc., a membership-based private jet charter program headquartered in Scottsdale, has announced their newest route connecting southern California and Scottsdale with Aspen, Colorado.
The company will begin servicing routes to Aspen with direct flights from the Scottsdale Airport, as well as one-stop flights from Orange County and San Diego starting the week of June 12, according to a press release.
Buy-the-seat costs for Set Jet member’s flights to and from Aspen will start at $1,330.
“Member requests for this route have consistently increased as we approach the Aspen summer season,” Set Jet CEO Tom Smith said in the release. “Aspen is home to some incredible summer festivals, and our members are looking forward to kicking off our Aspen service as the Food & Wine Classic begins. I am proud to see Set Jet now in 10 airports across five Southwestern states and Mexico as we continue to grow our Set Jet destination map.”
Aspen is the second route expansion for Set Jet in the last six months, following a new service route for Salt Lake City that began in December 2022, with additional service via Las Vegas starting June 2023.
Set Jet Chairman Steve Reynolds said, “As a longtime Aspen local, I am excited to see this route crossed off the Set Jet expansion to-do list. I am excited to bring this impeccable experience to the Aspen community — and there is a certain opposite synergy between the desert and the mountains that I truly enjoy as a second homeowner in Scottsdale, myself.
“With the four-month extended booking period for Set Jet flights, we anticipate member demand carrying flight service through the fall when the airlines take the season off,” continued Reynolds. “And as for Aspen locals, Set Jet’s connections to Southern California, Las Vegas, and Cabo will prove a great escape for the overworked summer community.”
Privately held and headquartered in Scottsdale, Set Jet is available exclusively for security pre-screened and approved members, the release stated. Set Jet was co-founded by Tom Smith, former chairman and co-founder of TASER International (now Axon) and a group of successful entrepreneurs.
Set Jet’s “buy a seat, not the jet” program grants its members access to a luxurious private jet experience for a cost comparable to a first-class commercial ticket with service to many of the West Coast’s top destinations including Aspen, Cabo San Lucas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Scottsdale.
