Meet Our Company
My name is Jay Taffet, and I’m a long-time pilot and aviation entrepreneur.
I spent the last 15 years developing and operating a range of business applications in private air, and recently found the service I truly wanted to build: A Southeast-based air shuttle service that combined the amenities and comfort of private air with the pricing of the airlines, so everyone could enjoy this world of travel!
I searched the aviation industry for the right operating partner to provide the jets, crew and scheduling, and found the perfect platform with Ultimate Jetcharters which had been operating their own air shuttle in the Midwest for several years. I then looked all over the Southeast for the right market – a city that could benefit from a private air-style connection to a companion city – and landed on Columbia, South Carolina and a same-day shuttle route to Atlanta – Buckhead/Midtown.
I found a local partner in Columbia and, together, we attracted a dynamic group of area business and community leaders to the project towards funding the startup of the Columbia-Atlanta air shuttle service. City-Connect found its home.
We hope you enjoy the service we’ve built for your city, and will become part of our passenger family for many years to come. If you’ve never flown private air because of cost or opportunity, well, you don’t want to miss this. And you certainly don’t want to miss the admission price into this world of private air!
