CEOworld Names Best Private Jets for Business Leaders

According to the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), “Business Aviation” is the use of any “general aviation” aircraft for a business purpose.

If you think that only the largest of the large corporations make use of business aviation, you would be wrong. According to the NBAA, the vast majority of these companies – 85% – are small and mid-size businesses, many of which are based in the dozens of markets across the country where the commercial airlines have reduced or eliminated service.

In reality, any company that needs to have their executives or other members of their workforce travel extensively for business could benefit from avoiding the many hassles of flying commercial and instead utilize a private jet.

Changing the Business of Business Aviation

While CEOWORLD compiled this list for CEOs who might be in the market to buy a private jet for company use, we know that today, there are many more options to fly privately. Companies no longer have to own and operate their own corporate or executive jets to leverage the many advantages of business aviation and gain access to most or all of the aircraft on this list - in fact, many of them are in the XO fleet!

XO is changing everything that even the most experienced traveler thinks they know about booking and flying on a private jet.

We are creating a better way to fly private, one that provides the private flyer with guaranteed availability of flights at market-friendly prices that are often less than any other way to book or fly privately, such as private charter or fractional jet ownership.

Over the past few years, many apps and business models have claimed to be the “Uber of private aviation,” but only XO has come anywhere close to Uber’s successful business model. Our on-demand solution has completely digitized the private aviation experience and provides guaranteed availability on anything from a full private charter to a single shared seat on an existing flight, all at competitive, market-favorable prices.

It is truly a revolution in private aviation.
