(Updated Sept. 8, 2020) JetSuite may fly again. At least that’s the possible outcome now.

with a refreshed website, logo, livery and new ad campaign. The company said its
goal is “to define its innovative form of air travel as a ‘hop-on jet service.’”
JSX says its mission is to “dramatically improve short-haul air travel by offering publicly available charter flights on 30-seat jets from private terminals.”
It now flies daily out of
six airports: Burbank (BUR), Las Vegas (LAS), Orange County (SNA), Napa/Concord
(CCR), Oakland (OAK), and Seattle-Boeing Field (BFI). JSX’s seventh
destination, Phoenix (PHX), will launch later this month.
