Private jets are becoming an increasingly popular mode of transportation for those looking to get away from the craziness of everyday life. They’re more convenient and efficient than going through conventional airports, and most of the time they’re more luxurious and comfortable than passenger jets. As an added bonus, they often travel to areas not easily accessible through big-name commercial airlines.
