PHOENIX — Ever dreamed of riding in style aboard a private jet?

Here’s your chance.

Equipped with a fleet of 30-seat Embraer 135 jets, luxury airliner JetSuiteX is expanding its reach, offering flights out of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to Burbank, California, Las Vegas and Oakland, California.

Three daily flights from Phoenix to Burbank will begin August 30, while four daily trips to Las Vegas start September 12. Three daily flights to Oakland are also scheduled to start October 1.

The airline will fly out of Swift Aviation, which sits on the southwest side of Sky Harbor.

“In 2016, we set out to reintroduce the simple joy of flying by launching a new air travel concept designed to make flying short distances faster, easier and more enjoyable,” Alex Wilcox, co-founder and CEO of JetSuiteX said in a press release.

“We are thrilled to add Phoenix to the list of destinations we serve and to bring the simplicity and ease of the JetSuiteX experience to this new market.”

While the airline focuses on the luxury aspect of flying, the price of a ticket is relativity cheap, with one-way fares starting at $79.

The use of private terminals also cuts down the potential for long lines and large crowds, allowing passengers to arrive as little as 20 minutes before departure.
