India's burgeoning aviation sector saw the launch of a successful start-up in March 2014, JetSetGo, that served as an aggregator for private jets in the country.

The New Delhi-based start-up was launched by cancer survivor Kanika Tekriwal, who aimed to break into a niche space in the country's aviation industry.

The business helps connect customers to companies that charter flights.

Is this business model viable?

The last two years saw the private jet industry's growth dip, although businessmen still frequent private jets for business requirements. "Most people charter to go to places that are not so well connected by commercial airlines," says Rohit Kapur, head of an airlines company.
