LOS ANGELES, Oct. 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Private jet operator JetSuite, recently purchased by JetBlue founder David Neeleman and Acadia Woods Partners, is introducing never-before-seen low prices on the west's most popular routes, starting at just $999 for a brand-new, four-seat Phenom 100 aircraft.

JetSuite's SuiteSaver rates apply the low-cost model to private aviation, making private aviation affordable for all from just $999 each way between LA/Van Nuys and Las Vegas, or $1499 between LA/Van Nuys, SF/Oakland, and Las Vegas.

"I learned a lot about providing new planes and a better travel experience while keeping costs low from working with David Neeleman at JetBlue, " said JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox. "Combining rock-bottom pricing with the convenience and comfort people expect of the private jet experience is just an unbeatable mix. Now you can fly to Vegas on a brand-new private jet with a few friends and pay just $250 per person."

With these new low private fares against recent increases in commercial airfares, JetSuite provides a viable alternative for business and leisure travelers alike with its new economical retail pricing.

These exceptionally low rates are offered on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays, subject to availability and black-out dates. Taxes and landing fees (at reduced rates) are applicable.   SuiteSaver rates require a four-day advance purchase and travel is valid from October 11 through December 31, 2010. To reserve a SuiteSaver fare, call (866) 779-7770.
