Private Air Travel Like at Affordable Prices (Video)

Private jet company AURA is bringing luxury travel to the masses with one-way ticket prices starting at $280. Slated for launch sometime in early 2019, AURA will start running frequent flights from Miami, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver and Los Angeles.
