VolJet Launches Private Jet Marketplace

In the second, on-demand marketplace aimed at private jet travel to launch in the last few days, Los Angeles-based VolJet says it has launched a new marketplace, to help consumers book private jet travel. The startup, led by Susan Sloan, said it has created an online system which combines both private jet and commercial airline travel, aimed at luxury air travelers. The company specifically said it is looking to offer up prices "well below typical charter rates", with features such as allowing users to form groups to share the cost of flying by private jet, and helping fill chartered aircraft, which often fly empty or very low capacity on one leg of a trip. VolJet joins another startup, CLick2Jet, a Carpinteria startup which just launched a similar, online private jet marketplace on Friday.
