JetSuiteX offers college football fan flight service

JetSuiteX is offering a service to fly college football fans in Los Angeles, California, from Burbank to the Bay Area and Tucson, Arizona, to some of the most anticipated games of the forthcoming season.

The public charter operator will offer round trip, same-day flights between private terminals aboard JetSuiteX aircraft, including the USC at Cal on September 23 and UCLA at Arizona on October 14. Tickets start at US$400 round trip, including business class legroom and complimentary cocktails and snacks.

“JetSuiteX can’t wait to welcome aboard fans and alumni of our local LA-area universities with this unique and super convenient way to catch these competitive match-ups,” said Alex Wilcox, founder and CEO of JetSuiteX.

“With these game day round trip flights, fans get the chance to arrive just 30 minutes before departure – avoiding long drives or airport lines and connections – to jet to see their favorite team, and then return same day.”

The ‘pop up’ flights will use private hangars and terminals, so fans can arrive 20-30 minutes before departure, which will be three hours before the to-be-announced game time. They will return approximately two hours after the games on the same day. Fans will be notified by phone and email prior to game day with the final flight departure and arrival times.
