This luxury aviation platform is essentially Uber but for private jets. JetMe enables travelers to charter a jet on demand from private owners at the price of their choosing. The owners are registered individuals or private aviation companies.

The aviation platform capitalizes on one-way empty flights -- basically return flights without any passengers. No membership is required. Users simply visit the JetMe website and enter their desired destination to start planning an itinerary. The system will calculate a suggested cost based on the location and availability of aircrafts using the Orders Success Potential algorithm. Users can then accept the recommended price or make a counter offer.

JetMe is just one startup looking to get involved in the $28 billion private aviation industry. This scheme also serves to widen the customer base.
