WEST CHICAGO – BizCharters, a new public air charter service based out of DuPage Airport in West Chicago, will soon begin daily commuter service from the Chicago area to the East Coast, according to a company news release. 

On Wednesday, BizCharters will launch its daily services from DuPage Airport and Chicago Midway International Airport to the New York and Washington, D.C., areas. 

Introductory rates are $495 for one-way tickets and $695 for round-trip tickets. 

The average one-way flight experience – including wait times for safety checks, boarding and other parts of flying – from Chicago to New York or Washington, D.C., is estimated at six hours when flying commercial, compared to just three hours for a BizCharters flight, according to the release.

BizCharters can cut down the time it takes to fly, in part, because travelers can check in for a BizCharter flight 15 minutes prior to departure, the release stated.

"Commercial air travel today is fraught with delays and hassles that wreak havoc on travelers' productivity and cause undue stress," BizCharters President Kevin Wallace said in the release. "We believe that the shortest part of your business trip should be the trip."

The BizCharters fleet includes customized 30-seat Embraer 135 regional jets, which are equipped with free high-speed WiFi, workstations and power outlets.
