You Can Now Buy a Private Jet Membership at Costco

Travel & Leisure

Costco isnít just about bulk toilet paper, Kirkland brand olive oil, and free samples of cheese. Though those are all very good reasons to go there.

The wholesale company is now also selling private jet memberships, the Washington Post reported. Yes, now the warehouse store truly does have everything.

According to the Washington Post, the private jet memberships come courtesy of Wheels Up, a private jet charter company that lets members use their jets at an hourly rate.

For $17,499.99, members will get a 12-month membership plus $3,500 Costco Shop Card, a $4,000 flight credit, travel on private aircraft (of course), guaranteed nationwide aircraft availability all year (even on short notice), access to special events, a complimentary 1-year Inspirato Membership for luxury vacations, dedicated account management to help you plan, and more. Wheels Up has a fleet of 300 private aircraft as well as 1,250 partner aircraft (including a fleet from Delta) that range in size to fit membersí needs.


The problem is that you have to buy a dozen of them.....

4. Does a pilot come with it, or do you have to fly it yourself?
