According to a report from The Globe and Mail, you can now order a private jet to pick you up, anywhere in the world, within 4 hours, from your mobile device. The service is now available by using a new mobile app from Blue Star Jets. You simply type in your location and destination, see what’s available and for how much, and order it. It’s that simple – and, as you may have guessed, very expensive.
The Globe and Mail reports that it a flight from Kelowna, B.C. to Seattle had more than a dozen options, ranging in capacity from 8-13 passengers and in price from $20,097.60 – $61,625.99. Expensive as it may be, the publication also notes that it may make some sense for business travelers: If you have a team of eight, $20,097.60 works out to just over $2,500 a person. Regular Air Canada fares (WestJet doesn’t fly to Seattle) would be more than $1,000, if you could get eight seats with four hours notice, which, on Tuesday, you could not. There were only five departure times available, anyway, just one of which was in the morning, and they all connected through either Vancouver or Calgary with travel times of more than three hours.
