Okay, so affordable may be a bit of a stretch, but travelling with Blackjet is definitely a game-changer when it comes to private airplane travel.
Here’s how it works:
- Rather than sell planes, Blackjet sells seats on planes with a capacity of between 6 to 14 people. Because these seats would have otherwise been empty, they are able to offer a reduced rate (For example: A cross-country flight between New York and LA would run around $3,551.40 for a seat compared to upwards of $50,000 for a private charter flight)
- Flights are always direct and offer a first-class experience and the convenience of travelling with a small group
- Because networking is important, Blackjet offers a variety of incentives and ‘deals’ to encourage people to join and convince their friends/colleagues to try out the service
- Membership costs $2,500
- Flights are easily booked using an App on your cell phone
