Two months after it began its per-seat, on-demand air service, Boca Raton, Fla.-based DayJet yesterday expanded its very light jet air-taxi network to 28 new destinations across Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi. This means members can now fly on DayJet’s Eclipse 500s to these additional regional destinations–called DayStops–provided that they begin or end their travel at one of the five DayPorts in Boca Raton, Gainesville, Lakeland, Pensacola or Tallahassee, Fla. “Since [we initiated] service in October, the feedback from our membership base has been overwhelmingly positive,” according to DayJet president and CEO Ed Iacobucci. “Adding these 28 new destinations to our network not only gives members in our DayPort markets more travel choices, but also provides a powerful link between communities that today have no direct scheduled jet service.” However, this move is a shift in Iacobucci’s original strategy, since DayStops were originally intended as whole-aircraft charter, not per-seat, destinations. Some of these new DayStops could eventually become DayPorts, DayJet said.
