Shared private jet charters offer big savings. Are they ready to take off? An in-depth comparison of the three major shared flight providers.

Jet Linx says last year it flew 40,000 empty seats; XO says it has sold over 160,000 single seats on shared flights

Sharing half of your flights between New York and South Florida during the winter could save as much as $75,000

Can you fly for the same price as first-class with the airlines?

Everyone wants to fly privately, says Kenny Dichter, the CEO and co-founder of Wheels Up. And the idea is the cheaper it is to fly privately, the more people who will do it. Dichter says that was his idea using the eight-seat King Air 350i to “democratize” short flight.

In the world of chartering your entire aircraft, he cut the price for a one-hour flight for eight people to around $5,000 compared to a cost of $8,000 to $10,000 for the same trip on a jet. His argument was that there was a minimal time penalty since landings and takeoffs are not at full speed, and often as you get near to your destination airport, airplanes are slowed down to similar speeds.
