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.
JSX operates scheduled
shuttles using private jet terminals in the Western U.S.
Jet card and on-demand
charter operator JetSuite has rebranded its JetSuiteX division as JSX along
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.
The four most searched private aviation companies on Google are very different, although they also have some similarities
In the world of private aviation solutions – fractional ownership, leases, jet cards, memberships, seat sharing, semiprivate airlines, and so forth, four companies have generated the most interest, according to Google Trends. Surprisingly, perhaps, they are each quite different once you get past the fact that they all want to fly you somewhere.
The jet sharing broker remains the subject of individual lawsuits, however, up to 12,000 members may be eligible for cash and credits under a proposed Class Arbitration settlement
We take an in-depth look at the value of the proposed settlement
Anyone who was a member of JetSmarter from September 5, 2014 until June 19, 2018 should be receiving a Notice of Settlement (Arbitration Matter No. 01-18-0003-3338) as part of a Class Action filed via arbitration last September. It’s estimated as many as 12,000 former and current members of the private jet plane sharing membership program could be eligible.
The proposed settlement offers members of the Class a net distribution of $2,975,000 plus potentially tens of millions of dollars in free membership extensions and flight credits.
The action was filed by Solowsky & Allen, P.L., a Miami law firm, which also apparently negotiated the settlement with JetSmarter. Requests for comment were not returned from either Solowsky & Allen or a second law firm listed on the settlement notice.
While Surf Air has pulled out of Europe and JetSmarter has none of its own flights scheduled, JetClass is seemingly making its by-the-seat semiprivate jet service work
By-the-seat private jet airline JetClass is increasing the frequency of its top-performing route between Zurich and Luxembourg, and adding flights between Vienna and Strasbourg, two cities in the heart of Europe which had never had a direct flight nonstop before, the company said in a press release.
