Wheels Up sets revenue record again in second quarter

Private jet membership provider Wheels Up again reported double-digit percentage revenue growth in its second-quarter financial report. After a record first quarter, with a 24% jump in revenue, its Q2 set another record for the company, with a 49% year-to-year increase in revenue of $425.5 million, driven by strong flight demand. Its stock was up 2.75% as of Friday morning. Prepaid block sales were nearly triple what they were in 2021, with a 20% growth in active members on top of a 26% gain in the first quarter. "Our strong market position and iconic brand helped drive record revenue in the second quarter, and another quarter of growth in prepaid blocks speaks both to the steadfast loyalty of our member base, and the continued consumer demand for private aviation," Wheels Up Chairman and CEO Kenny Dichter said in a statement. "Air Partner is off to a strong start in its first quarter as part of our company, and we are already seeing the benefits of having a global footprint. Our team is moving quickly to enhance our technology-enabled marketplace platform which we expect will provide us with a significant competitive advantage."RELATED STORIES:Wheels Up shares jump on news of record Q1 2022 revenue Wheels Up acquires Air Partner in move to expand globallyThe entire Wheels Up fleet now is managed through UP FMS.
