FlexJet Chairman Kenn Ricci calls it the new world of flying executives and wealthy individuals around the world.
They want more in the air and are willing to pay for it.
"People that have been accustomed to a certain convenience, and they've been used to that domestically," Ricci said. "I think I've seen their needs go more international since 2008, but as that's happened, I think they've wanted the same custom, convenience, time savings they've had domestically."
The corporate jet, which has long been used by executives to fly internationally, is increasingly being used to fly further and reach even more remote locations overseas. To meet that demand, FlexJet is buying 50 Gulfstream jets, including the G450, G650 and the new G500.
As Ricci took CNBC through a mock up of the cabin of the new G500, he explained how the world has changed for the corporate jet flier.
