JetSuite, one of the largest private jet companies in the U.S., today announced that JetBlue Airways has made a minority equity investment in the company, helping fuel its fast-growing JetSuiteX service.
JetSuiteX, now the fastest growing public charter company in the U.S., is changing the game in short-haul air travel by offering a private jet experience that is affordable and accessible to a broad audience.
JetSuiteX flies 30 passenger jets to/from Burbank, Calif., Las Vegas, San Jose, Calif., Carlsbad, Calif., Concord, Calif., Mammoth, Calif., and Bozeman Mont.
“We are delighted to have JetBlue join us as a strategic partner and shareholder. The partnership with JetBlue will allow us to accelerate our growth and we are excited to work together to deliver new and unique experiences for all JetSuite and JetBlue customers,” said Alex Wilcox, chief executive officer, JetSuite.
“JetBlue and JetSuite share a passion for delivering a high-quality customer experience at a competitive price point in underserved markets,” said Robin Hayes, president and chief executive officer, JetBlue. “Our investment in JetSuite makes sense as we continue to execute on our west coast plan and invest in innovative ideas that reflect the disruptive spirit of JetBlue.”
The agreement provides for a JetBlue nominee to be appointed to the JetSuite board of directors.
