When it comes to the needs of the jet-set elite in Canada, booking a private jet represents something of a pain point. Private jet charter is the best solution for many major businesses and individuals, and yet the selection is limited, overpriced and delivered via a series of complicated systems.

Eclipse Air Charter, an on-demand, private aircraft charter company headquartered in Toronto, is changing that.

“Despite Canada being a major business and economic hub, Canadian clients have access to a limited selection of charter aircraft compared to their counterparts in the United States or Europe,” said Yasmin Alam, founding partner of Eclipse Air Charter.

In Canada there are approximately 1,900 business aviation aircraft, many of which are underutilized. Working with a network of aircraft owners and operators both locally and internationally, Eclipse Air Charter offers a more extensive range of aircraft options than ever before, with a simple pay-as-you-go service with no long-term commitment, initial outlay, membership fees or management charges. Clients have access to aircraft worldwide and are able to utilize local, transient and empty-leg aircraft on a flight-by-flight basis.

“Technology is playing an important role in the aircraft charter market, and companies that are unable to adapt will not survive the next generation of private jet customers,” said Alam.

In addition to its current bespoke, on-demand charter aircraft service, Eclipse Air Charter will launch a mobile app in November, which allows users to instantly book a private jet flight from Toronto to New York, Montreal, Boston, Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
