The fast-growing scheduled executive jet service which uses private jet terminals only start Phoenix flights last year
JetSuite, Inc’s JSX is expanding again. Recently it announced flights from Boeing Field in Seattle to Portland, Oregon. Now it’s adding a fourth route from Phoenix, a destination that just came online last year.
Flights from the Valley of the Sun to John Wayne Airport in Orange County begin March 3 supplementing Las Vegas, Burbank, and Oakland.
The JSX website shows one to two daily flights in each direction depending on day of the week.
American Airlines and Southwest Airlines operate up to 11 daily nonstops each way, according to Google Flights.
However, JSX saves users time by using private aviation facilities instead of the main passenger terminals. It enables passengers to arrive as little as 20 minutes before departure and be off the airport five to 10 minutes after pulling up to the stand.
For short flights, it can cut total travel time in half. JSX one-way fares start at $139.
Other routes from Orange County include Las Vegas and Concord, and Mammoth Lakes on a seasonal basis.
JSX uses a combination of Embraer ERJ-145 and ERJ-135 regional jets that have been converted to reduce seats from 37 to 30, including a 36-inch pitch between seat rows, equivalent to first class on domestic airlines. Airplane walls were also given additional insulation to reduce noise.
In addition to leather seats, there is free Wi-Fi, drinks, and snacks.
