We’re already seeing a spike in private jet travel because of companies like JetSuite and JetSmarter, which are letting customers pay for flights by the seat. More ground transportation will be needed at the airports which service charters, says Alex Darbahani, CEO and owner of KLS Limousine Service in Los Angeles. (LCT file photo)

A June 20 article on Travel Agent Central reports that project based business travel – i.e., travel to complete a specific task — grew to healthy $45.4 billion last year as the result of some 66 million trips, according to a study conducted by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and Intercontinental Hotels Group.

Alex Darhabani of KLS Limousine Service said that, along with the increase in business travel, he expects a continued surge in private jet travel which he said will require appropriate luxury ground transportation to go with it.
