I’ve written in the past about JetSuite and the ability to secure your own private jet at a fraction of the normal cost. I also recently mentioned their Coachella package offering a ticket to the festival and to fly you roundtrip in style. Now, JetSuite is readying themselves to launch a new public charter air carrier called JetSuiteX which will fly daily Monday to Friday. JetSuiteX will service in the busy San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles market on April 19, and eventually to Las Vegas. The San Francisco Bay Area refers to Buchanan Field in Contra Costa County in Concord, just northeast of Oakland and about an hours drive away from SFO. Skip LAX and hop into Burbanks Bob Hope Airport for this flight. The initial SFO/LA area flights will begin with three daily flights in newly configured Embraer 135’s. For those looking for table stakes in Las Vegas, that service will fly just once weekly on Friday nights and returning Sunday afternoons.

If you’ve been around long enough, you might remember that PSA once flew from Buchanan to LA back in the late 80s and early 90s. Oh yes, those were the days as they had five times daily flights. Called “Private for the Public” it reflects a semi-private jet experience that is affordable for a much broader audience. JetSuiteX will provide many of the comforts usually associated with private jet. Each aircraft will feature 30 seats with 36-inch seat pitch (single and double per row), free wi-fi and the coolest benefit—service from private jet terminals (FBOs) … much faster, more comfortable and likely to major delays, long security lines or congested airports.

And you knew this was coming, the management team behind JetSuiteX includes principles that launched JetBlue which means that every JetSuiteX customer can earn TrueBlue points when flying JetSuiteX.
