To all of you who deal with the Coachella traffic year in and year out… we’ve got some great news! JetSuiteX has announced flights between Burbank/Los Angeles (BUR) and the Coachella Valley Cochran Desert Resorts Regional Airport (TRM) in Thermal for the weekends of April 13-16 and April 20-23. Music lovers and resort visitors can jet to the desert in just 35 minutes, with tickets starting at $199 each way!

With JetSuiteX, desert-goers can avoid freeway traffic and parking hassles when they jet between private terminals in Burbank and Thermal aboard a comfortably appointed, 30-seat E-135 jet, with at least 36 inches of leg room and complimentary cocktails and snacks at every seat. Unlike major airlines, JetSuiteX customers arrive just 15-20 minutes before departure and board comfortably, with no cattle calls or baggage claims.

“JetSuiteX is excited to expand our April weekend pop up service this year with even more flights to the Coachella Valley this coming April,” said Alex Wilcox, CEO of JetSuiteX. “Last year’s trips were met with such excitement that we expanded it for 2018, adding additional flights over two spring weekends. Along with the regular service we offer between our current destinations in Burbank, San Jose, Concord, Oakland and Las Vegas, these pop up flights allow us to bring the joys of semi-private travel to even more people who value their time and don’t want to spend it in traffic.”

The April pop up schedule is as follows:

  • Friday, April 13th: departures from Burbank to Thermal/Coachella Valley at 9:20 a.m., 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m.
  • Monday, April 16th: departures from Thermal/Coachella Valley to Burbank at 12 noon, 1:30 p.m.and 3:00 p.m.
  • Friday, April 20th: departures from Burbank to Thermal/Coachella Valley at 10:40 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
  • Monday, April 23rd: departures from Thermal/Coachella Valley to Burbank at 12 noon and 3:00 p.m.

Flight times are subject to small changes. Additional flights may be added as demand requires, and the off-peak direction flights, for those who want to leave the Coachella Valley during those busy weekends, will be available for just $49.

See you in the skies!
