SuiteKey jet card members can gift seats and passes onto JetSuiteX

JetSuiteX, JetSuite’s by the seat private jet service is adding and expanding its season service to the Coachella Valley in April. Following the success of last year’s service from Burbank (BUR) directly into Thermal, only 15 minutes from the Valley, JetSuiteX has added flight capacity from Burbank and introduced flights from two new markets – Oakland (OAK) and Orange County (SNA). Ticket prices start at $69 each way.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival runs April 12 to 21 this year. JetSuiteX operates scheduled flights between private terminals aboard Embraer 135 aircraft configured with 36 inches of leg room with no bag fees and complimentary cocktails and snacks. Passengers arrive just 20 minutes before departure and board quickly, with their baggage waiting for them when they deplane. Flights are scheduled on Thursday April 11, Friday, April 12 and Monday, April 15 as well as Thursday, April 18, Friday, April 19 and Monday, April 22.

“At JetSuiteX, we believe getting there should be as enjoyable as the destination itself,” said Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuiteX. “By flying directly into Thermal, we are giving festival-goers from Burbank, Orange County and Oakland the ultimate time-saving hack and making traveling to and from the desert fast and fun.”
