Users of private jets spend 72% of flights on work related tasks, more than double that of flying commercially, according to a study by Harris Interactive.  

In terms of the places that business aviation leverages the time of you and your employees, 30% of flight time on private aircraft is spent working on individual projects compared to 28% when flying commercially.

For work related meetings with customers, 6% of private jet flights is spent mingling with customers and potential customers. The biggest advantage, however, is internal work time with your team. While only 3% of commercial airline flights are spent conducting work-related meetings with company employees, the Harris survey finds when flying privately 36% of the time is spent with the team getting on the same page, brainstorming and moving work projects forward.
