On-demand airline could alter travel to midsize cities

By Kevin Maney, USA TODAY
Mon Apr 25, 6:34 AM ET

A technology entrepreneur on Monday unveils a new kind of on-demand airline that could alter the way people travel between midsize cities.

DayJet, of Delray Beach, Fla., will marry two advanced technologies: Very Light Jet (VLJ) aircraft, which can seat four passengers and operate at half the cost of today's small jets; and sophisticated computer databases that can determine the most efficient ways to route those aircraft to pick up customers.

Expected cost: slightly more than full-fare coach tickets on those same routes. Service is expected to begin in mid-2006, with plans to expand to 30 markets by the end of 2007. DayJet will focus on midsizecities, such as Asheville, N.C., that it considers under-served by major airlines.

Sounds like there's a competitor to Pogo, a similar service being started up by Don Burr and Robert Crandell (Who would have thought these two would go into business together). The last I heard, they were planning on using the Adam A700 and had ordered 75 of them. DayJet is planning on using the Eclipse 500, but considering the a/c is still in testing and certification stage, they won't get the first of the 239 they ordered until March 2006.
