JetSmarter, is an app that works much like the infamous Uber but this time for private jets.
Sergey Petrossov built the JetSmarter app which allows you to book a flight quickly and easily and aims to eliminate the middle man. Customers book, fly and pay via their mobile phone, with a choice of over 3,000 aircrafts. JetSmarter enables you to pick up a private jet within minutes, just like Uber. JetSmarter has recently raised an impressive $20 million, apparently attracting investors including members of the Saudi Royal Family and Jay-Z.
Jetsmarter has three offerings:
JetDeals, for people who want to book one way private flights.
JetShuttle, which enables seat rather than private flight bookings on previously scheduled private flights, and
JetCharter, offering private customizable travel packages.
There is a membership fee of $9,000 per anum and then you have a free reign to acesss the JetSmarter booking system. Their latest investment goes towards expanding offices and routes and purchasing additional flights from carriers.
Labelling themselves as “The New First Class”, private jet travel is certainly the most luxurious way to travel, and faffing about in airports is something to be avoided. With JetSmarter private jet travel is thankfully also becoming more affordable.
