DayJet Corporation announced today that it is now flying "Per-Seat, On-Demand" jet service from Ben Epps Airport. Athens is the newest addition to DayJet’s growing "Per-Seat, On-Demand" service network connecting under-serviced communities and thriving business centers across the Southeast.
DayJet’s service expansion directly links Athens to an initial 14 DayPort™ communities across Florida, Alabama and Georgia – including Savannah, Macon, Boca Raton, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Orlando, Pensacola, Miami, Naples, Sarasota, St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Tallahassee, and Montgomery. DayJet members, numbering more than 2,000 business travelers, can now fly "Per-Seat, On-Demand" to/from Athens when they begin or end their travel at a DayPort community.
"DayJet is ushering in a new era in regional transportation that makes it easier for business professionals to travel directly to the places they need to go without overnight stays or long hours on the road," said Traver Gruen-Kennedy, Vice President of Strategic Operations. "Starting today, DayJet members traveling to and from Athens not only have affordable access to on-demand jet service, but they can also decide how much their time is worth to increase productivity and enhance their quality of life."
About "Per-Seat, On-Demand" Jet Service
DayJet has developed the world’s first "Per-Seat, On-Demand" jet service that makes the convenience of corporate jet travel broadly available and affordable for more people and organizations, turning wasted travel time into valuable business and personal time. "Per-Seat" means customers only pay for the seat(s) they need, not the entire aircraft. "On-Demand" means customers fly according to their individually negotiated time requirements. Business travelers can now book just the seat that they need aboard DayJet’s fleet of Eclipse 500™ very light jets (VLJs); customize travel according to their time and budget requirements; fly point-to-point between regional destinations; and return home in a single day.
DayJet is the largest fleet operator of next-generation very light jet (VLJ) aircraft and the pioneer of a new type of regional business travel. "Per-Seat, On-Demand" jet service is sold by the individual seat and customized for each passenger’s unique time and budget requirements— prices start at a modest premium to full-fare economy coach airfares. Headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, DayJet is the first 100% all-digital air carrier. Combined with the speed and efficiency of Eclipse 500 VLJ aircraft, DayJet "Per-Seat, On-Demand" jet service has created the next major advance in corporate productivity and regional economic development.
