IRVINE, Calif., May 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New public charter service JetSuiteX is introducing weekday and Sunday service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, starting May 26. Regular fares will start from $129* each way.
JetSuiteX will connect Burbank Bob Hope Airport with McCarran International Airport with three daily roundtrip flights on luxuriously configured Embraer 135 aircraft. JetSuiteX launched service last month with weekday flights between Los Angeles and the San Francisco East Bay, which it is also now increasing to three roundtrips each day.

“Airport congestion and worsening security delays have made short-haul air travel sometimes more of a hassle than it’s worth,” said JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox. “In fact, between 2000 and 2014, LA to Las Vegas air travel lost more than one million enplanements to the freeways. After all, who wants to spend more time in the airport than in the air? JetSuiteX was created for people who prefer to fly but want to avoid crowded airport terminals and long security lines.”
JetSuiteX provides many of the comforts usually associated with private jet travel but for the price of a traditional airline seat, offering:
- 30 luxurious seats per aircraft, each with at least 36-inch seat pitch, legroom comparable to domestic airlines’ business class service;
- three seats per row—a single and a double;
- free WiFi and inflight entertainment onboard streamed to passengers’ personal devices; and
- flight departures only from private jet terminals (FBOs).
Unlike other alternative offerings, JetSuiteX clients don’t need to sign up, pay a monthly subscription, or travel in small propeller airplanes. As JetSuiteX only flies from private jet facilities, there are no crowded terminals, long security lines, or giant parking lots.
All flights may be purchased by visiting jetsuitex.com, by downloading the JetSuiteX app, or by calling 800 IflyJSX. (435-9579). For more information about retail flights and private jet membership, visit www.jetsuite.com.
*Lowest fares may require advance purchase.
