A new private air service, Beacon, has just launched, offering unlimited flights between New York, the Hamptons, Boston, and Nantucket for $2000 a month. The planes will be small, seating fewer than ten people, and the terminals are less-traveled ones such as White Plains. The founders of Beacon tried out the concept with Surf Air, another all-you-can-fly service between Silicon Valley and Los Angeles. But unlike Surf Air, Beacon won't own the planes it flies, which will be such crafts as Pilatus PC-12s and Beechcrafts King Air 350is. Concierge service, no lines, and a superior in-flight experience are touted.
So do you think you'll join the "Netflix of private planes"?
