Costco Is Now Selling 1-Year Private Jet Memberships For $17,500
Costco is now offering a different kind of membership, that allows you to do more than buy snacks in bulk.
The wholesale retailer has partnered with Wheels Up, a private aviation company that aims to make private flying “more accessible,” to allow its members to buy a private jet membership.
As long as you have $17,499.99 sitting around, you will have access to its private jet services for one year. Wheels Up has a fleet of more than 300 planes and has access to more than 1,250 partner aircraft.
The subscription also comes with a $3,500 Costco Shop Card and $4,000 in flight credits, along with a one-year membership to Inspirato, which offers luxury vacation rentals throughout the year.
“When you fly with Wheels Up, you will experience Safe Passage™— a comprehensive health and safety program for our members, passengers, and employees with guidelines developed by the Wheels Up Safety and Operations leadership teams in response to COVID-19 and today’s ongoing health concerns,” a statement on Costco’s website reads.
Once you pay the fee, you will be able to book flights in a comfortable aircraft. Keep in mind that the $17,500 only allows you to book the flight, it does not actually include the cost of the flight.
According to Costco, there is no “minimum hours” commitment. You only pay the up-front price per trip. You can also book a flight with as little as 24 hours’ notice.
