Not too long ago, the concept of booking a car service on demand, via a smartphone app, seemed eerily futuristic, but thanks to the rise of Uber and Lyft, this practice is now more common than hailing a cab.
Now, there are few things that you can’t get on demand. In fact, one can even get a private jet by booking it through an app.
These are the top 10 key players in the private jet on demand space.
The name says it all. UberJets allows users to book a jet much like they would an ordinary trip by commercial flight, by enabling them to plug in where they’d like to arrive and depart from. Then just tap and book.

By using JetApp, passengers can create their own flight plan and fly to destinations that commercial airlines can’t reach. Like UberJets, users enter where they’d like to depart and arrive.
