I once co-founded a company that had everything a dotcom needed – crazy ideas, lots of well-pampered employees all over the world, a top roster of investors but no private jets for the executives. Of course the start-up had no chance attracting top-tier management 🙂
Now that would be easy to fix with Jetsmarter.
Jetsmarter sees itself as a connector between aircraft operators and potential clients and tries to reduce friction between the members of this marketplace.
Once you download the app you will see the 'Aircraft Charter' and 'Empty Legs' search. Aircraft charter is as expensive as you'd expect it.
However there seem to be deals to be had with the 'Empty Legs'.
$1 for a private jet flight with a membership? That sounds cool. The Jetsmarter membership is described here – the price tag is a hefty $6,999!
If you can make use of many of the empty seats this can still be a decent deal. It certainly requires monitoring of the aircraft operators in your area and evaluating if it's worth the risk.
