Per-seat, on-demand very light jet air-taxi firm DayJet yesterday added Naples, Fla., and Savannah, Ga., as DayPorts, augmenting the five initial DayPorts in Boca Raton, Gainesville, Lakeland, Pensacola and Tallahassee, Fla. In addition, the company added 12 new DayStops in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. “Naples and Savannah are strategic additions to our DayPort service network,” said DayJet president and CEO Ed Iacobucci. “With the growth of our fleet, DayJet will continue to expand our service network, giving business travelers throughout the Southeast unprecedented regional travel options.” Boca Raton-based DayJet, which launched service in October, now serves 45 regional destinations across the Southeast with its fleet of Eclipse 500s (currently numbering 28 aircraft), but service to or from DayStops requires that trips begin or end at one of the seven DayPorts. The company said it is accepting corporate membership applications for customers at its two new DayPort communities.
