Aircraft management and jet card provider Jet Linx has launched a co-ownership program bridging the gap between whole aircraft ownership and traditional membership and fractional solutions

Shared private jet flights you can purchase by-the-seat are now covered in a new guide exclusively for subscribers of Private Jet Card Comparisons
JetSmarter is gone, but the concept of sharing a private jet is finally taking off. By-the-seat and jet sharing private jet services are expanding as more consumers seek to avoid large airport terminals and big airplanes. A dozen providers now offer a network of by-the-seat and crowd-funding private jet services covering the U.S. and beyond. For the first time, Private Jet Card Comparisons has cataloged these services and options, giving subscribers an exclusive Guide to Shared Private Jet Services.

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.
