Corporate shuttles have long been a staple of business aviation, but now are serving a more critical purpose
Major companies around the world have long chartered aircraft to operate corporate shuttles. The shuttles typically operate on a schedule, many times between company locations where there is a lack of nonstop airline flights.
Types of aircraft used vary from traditional private jets to regional airliners converted into an executive cabin. Some companies have even operated these types of shuttles on transoceanic routes.
