Irvine-based public charter service JetSuiteX, a subsidiary of jet charter company JetSuite, will begin flights from Carlsbad to San Jose on Oct. 17, the company recently announced.
The public charter service, which launched in April, will have four roundtrip flights weekly between McClellan–Palomar Airport and Mineta San José International Airport, the company said.
The flights will leave at 7:45 a.m. from Palomar Airport and return at 5 p.m. from San Jose on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Travelers will take to the skies in an Embraer Phenom 100, a four-seat private jet.
Fares for a seat on a one-way trip start at $499.
"Our new route is the first publicly available nonstop service to the Bay Area in at least 20 years,” said JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox, a founding director of JetBlue Airways, in a statement.
JetSuiteX also has flights between Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, the San Jose airport and, on a seasonal basis, between San Jose and Yellowstone International Airport in Bozeman, Montana.
The charter service said the frequency of flights between Burbank and San Jose will increase to two round-trip flights daily, also starting Oct. 17. Fares for a one-way flight will start at $129.
All JetSuite flights leave from private jet terminals, the company said.
