Wheels Up—a New York–based private-aviation membership service—has teamed up with Four Hundred, a concierge company that coordinates access to restaurants, sporting events, concerts, and other experiences around the world. In the 8760 Concierge by Four Hundred program, a team of “personal lifestyle specialists,” as Four Hundred calls them, will be available 24/7 to fulfill travelers’ requests for such items as tickets to the hottest Broadway shows, tables at top Las Vegas restaurants, and tours of private vineyards in Napa. “All requests are attainable,” Four Hundred boasts.

Wheels Up offers its members exclusive access to a private fleet of customized King Air 350i twin turboprops and Citation Excel/XLS jets. The company also arranges flights in other mission-appropriate jets and helicopters through partner operators, including Jet Aviation, JetSuite, VistaJet, and HeliFlite. Wheels Up membership starts with a one-time initiation fee of $15,750, followed by dues of $7,250 per year starting in the second year. Corporate initiation fees are $25,000, with $10,000 annual dues. Both categories offer guaranteed availability with 24-hour notice to book flights. (wheelsup.com)
