IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- JetSuite, the nation's fastest-growing light jet operator, announces the expansion of its fleet with the JetSuite Edition CJ3. The new, larger, longer-range aircraft will be open for bookings* on October 9th with flights beginning November 19, in time for Thanksgiving travel. JetSuite's range and capacity expands with the JetSuite Edition CJ3, which has the ability to fly up to 2,000 miles and seat six passengers (plus a 7th, smaller sideways-facing seat) making JetSuite's acclaimed service available to more passengers and flying further than ever.
JetSuite SuiteKey Members will be able to fly between New York and popular Florida destinations including West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Naples for under $11,000 each way – less than any other branded charter operator. During the first year of operations, JetSuite's CJ3 service will be available between any points east of the Mississippi and from the East to and from Aspen and Vail, and through Eastern Canada and the Caribbean*.
"Many of our customers have been asking us to provide the JetSuite experience in an aircraft with more seats and a longer range, and we've listened. Through months of hard work with our new partner Cessna, we have created the JetSuite Edition CJ3, which offers unbeatable value, range and free WiFi. JetSuite will also offer its signature instant, guaranteed online pricing for all CJ3 flights, furthering our mission to provide private jet travel to more people and distances than ever before," comments JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox.
With the JetSuite Edition CJ3, passengers can enjoy a variety of amenities including onboard WiFi and increased interior comfort with larger cabin space. The deep-cushioned executive recliner seats slide and track inboard toward the aisle to give passengers an extra helping of room, comfort and workspace. And the JetSuite Edition CJ3 has been equipped for overwater flights, opening up non-stop direct routes to Florida and the Caribbean from points in the Northeast. This means JetSuite clients will get there faster than those flying in land-locked jets. Moreover, JetSuite clients will get above the weather and airline traffic congestion even faster, since the powerful CJ3 can climb directly to 45,000 in just 27 minutes and cruises at up to 480MPH.
