The aim: to create a one-stop “digital jet marketplace.”

Benefits of the membership, which is limited to one authorized user per account, include instant booking for flights ranging from full charter to individual seats; the ability to initiate or join shared charters; discounts on empty legs; and waived service fees. It also includes transparency in terms of the aircraft a Rise member will be flying, whether it’s a newer or older turboprop or business jet, as well as the size of the aircraft and availability of amenities such as Wi-Fi. Rise members also pay a “dynamic” private charter and/or seat fee per flight, according to XO’s website.
