If you’re looking to book an on-demand trip from Boston to Miami using your smartphone, a Jay-Z backed startup could get you there.

Florida-based JetSmarter plans to offer on-demand and scheduled flights to its users and members on private jets traveling between Boston, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., Boston Business Journal reported.

The service gives users the opportunity to book their flights from a mobile app, and also lets members reserve seats on scheduled flights for $9,000 a year, while others can book the private flights on-demand with the option to rent the entire jet or split it with other passengers.

The company currently offers more than 20 routes, both foreign and domestic. While the Boston expansion doesn’t have an exact start date pinned down, it’s slated to begin sometime before summer rolls around.
