Abbey Air gets you to Palm Springs, pronto

Abbey Air will get you from Burbank to Palm Springs for the White Party in 30 minutes.

David Cooley is determined to collect your coins whether you are grounded or flying high in the skies. His famous coffee shop/bar/restaurant/dance club/Elizabeth Taylor watering hole known as The Abbey is partnering with JetSuiteX to bring what we love about The Abbey to the skies en route to Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party, the world’s biggest gay dance festival weekend.

For those who want door-to-door service and to get the party started before leaving Los Angeles, JetSuiteX and The Abbey are launching “Abbey Air,” which departs from a private terminal at Burbank airport on Friday, May 5 and returns from Palm Springs on Monday, May 8.

With fares starting at $199 each way, travelers will be able to skip the traffic and fly the quick 35-minute flight in a 30-seat “luxurious” Embraer 135 aircraft, while enjoying The Abbey’s signature cocktails and beats by The Abbey’s resident DJ Dawna Montell. There is even an optional David Cooley-hosted party at the hanger featuring the soon-to-be even more famous Abbey bartenders.

This is the perfect flight for those fearful of seeing family/work people normys, aka non-White Party attendees, in their post-White Party state en route back to Los Angeles. The return flight promises mellow beats and mimosas.

“I flew JetSuiteX to Las Vegas and instantly fell in love with the company because of their remarkable customer service and the luxurious experience for nearly the same price as a commercial ticket,” Cooley said.

JetSuiteX says it offers travelers the benefits of private travel in well-appointed regional jets at commercial fares. Its parent company, JetSuite, Inc., recently announced an investment from JetBlue.

David Cooley has expanded The Abbey with his purchase of Here Bar and opened The Chapel at The Abbey last year, which has become among other things the go to Sunday Funday destination. His reality show What Happens at the Abbey premieres Sunday, May 14 at 10 pm, on the E! network. He is both executive producer and cast member of the series.

Flights can be purchased by visiting, or by downloading the JetSuiteX app on iOS.
