JetSuiteX is a semi-private air carrier selling public charter tickets for flights between California, Washington and Nevada in the United States. Flights are operated by its subsidiary Delux Public Charter (dba JetSuiteX Air) under DOT 14 CFR Part 380 as an FAA Part 135 on-demand charter operator with DOT Commuter Authority. JetSuiteX is a subsidiary of private charter company JetSuite. The company focuses on passengers taking short-haul flights. It began operations in April 2016 and offers or has scheduled service to nine destinations as of July 2019[update].
JetSuite announced the launch of JetSuiteX in April 2016. According to JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox, the air carrier was created in response to declining short-haul traffic and the rise in fares on short-haul flights in the United States. Wilcox attributes these phenomena in part to long wait times in airports. JetSuiteX targets time-sensitive travelers who seek an experience better than that of traditional low-cost flights but not as expensive as private jet travel.
