Private Jet Flying is not an unreal experience anymore many private jet companies have been reportedly offering quite a few last-minute deals. The deals facilitate flying private, making it an affordable experience, in almost as less as $500.
The private aviation company, JetSuite has charters like SuiteDeal, which extends last-minute deals. The deals are priced between $500 and $2,000 and include one-way private jet charters within the United States making it well within budget. The company is attempting to making the private jet flying accessible to travellers including those who are not CEO’s. Apart from which, companies such as Blade and JetSmarter also offer flights at reasonable prices, and work on a model of diverse fliers sharing a charter.

So, flying has never been so exciting and the economic angle just makes the private jet flying experience amazing. In this context, Steve Wooster, the managing director of services and air operations for the luxury travel network Virtuoso, had stated that the proliferation of private jet brands has led to lowering of prices.

The statistics from the research company, Euromonitor reflect that the number of passengers in the United States who have chartered planes has increased from 4.88 million in 2013 to 5.32 million in 2016.

JetSmarter operates on a model offering membership to fliers at $15,000 a year (minimum). The fliers can book seats on a scheduled flight through the JetSmarter app. The app enables members to set their own schedule by creating a flight and posting it, and then, other interested members can buy seats for the route, which helps in reducing the cost of the charter. In the case, the plane sells all seats, then the member who created the flight flies for free. The Blade company does not require membership and also sells flights.
