New public charter service, JetSuiteX will offer seasonal flight service from Burbank to Mammoth starting December 15, 2016, through April 3, 2017. JetSuiteX is classified as a public charter airline, which means...

The Perks 

• Flight departure from private jet terminals. Read: no security lines, terminal delays or long walks to gates, and best of all, guests encouraged to arrive just 20-30 minutes before takeoff.

• Because public charters are limited to 30 passengers, the aircraft has seven fewer seats than the same planes had when they flew as American Eagle. The takeaway: plenty of legroom.

• Free checked bags, inflight WiFi and entertainment, drinks and snacks, and seat assignments. 

“We are thrilled to offer the Los Angeles market another JetSuiteX destination, following Las Vegas, Concord and San Jose” said JetSuite CEO, Alex Wilcox. “Our scheduled charter service will allow Angelenos the opportunity to enjoy the epic terrain and long ski season that Mammoth Lakes is known for. Best of all, you can get to the airport 20 minutes before your flight, be on the slopes an hour earlier and bring all of your ski gear for no extra charge!”

The Details

• Fares for the new route start from $129 each way.

• JetSuiteX will connect Burbank Bob Hope Airport with Mammoth Yosemite Airport with four roundtrip flights per week—a 4:15 p.m. departure from Burbank’s Hangar 2 and a 5:45 p.m. return flight from Mammoth Lakes—on Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday, on luxuriously configured Embraer 135 aircraft.
• The public charter operator currently offers regular flights in major west coast markets, including San Diego, Las Vegas, Burbank, San Jose and Concord, Calif. in the East Bay.
• No monthly subscription or travel in small propeller airplanes. 

“The addition of JetSuiteX service to Mammoth Yosemite Airport this winter will offer a unique, high-end experience of private air service without the need to charter your own plane,” said Mammoth Lakes Tourism Executive Director, John Urdi. “The convenience of service from Burbank, the hassle free boarding process and no baggage fees will make this service very attractive to our guests. We look forward to a long relationship and possibly expanded routes offered with JetSuiteX in the future.”
