    India’s prosperity is rising so fast that it won’t be too many more years before you’ll see lots more people in that country affluent enough to take advantage of private jet sales or private jet rental. Some company executives will use a business private jet, meaning they will either buy a private jet or lease a private jet as the company private jet. But whether it’s individuals who buy private jets or companies looking for private jet service to take care of their business travel needs, private jet prices will have to come down considerably before anyone but the very richest Indians will be able to afford to travel by private jet aircraft. However, make no mistake about it. The use of private jets is a viable alternative to commercial air transportation in India and most every other country, and private jet sales and private jet rentals are sure to grow in popularity, especially if enough price competition is introduced to help keep prices reasonable or even lower the cost of using a private jet service.
