A new airline called DayJet says it wants to change the way business travelers get around Florida.
DayJet founder Ed Iacobucci says the company will be offering
them a seat on a new type of aircraft called the very light jet.
He says DayJet will help executives get to Florida's mid-sized cities easier by giving them a quicker option than driving. And Iacobucci says DayJet will allow business travelers to
bypass the state's larger airports -- which are often chaotic and
involve a change of planes -- by flying to mid-sized cities of Boca
Raton, Gainesville, Lakeland, Pensacola and Tallahassee.
The Eclipse 500 jets fly at about 425 miles per hour -- much
faster than other planes their size --and can get a client from
Boca Raton to Lakeland in 35 minutes.
That's at least a three hour drive by car. However, some wonder if the flights will be too expensive, and if DayJet will be able to manage costs to turn a profit and operate long-term.
