FT. LAUDERDALE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 18, 2017 / Innovations in transportation, as in other industries, have always been enjoyed by the affluent. The evolution of luxury travel traces back to the first modern motorcar, the Mercedes 35 hp, commissioned by Austrian businessman and diplomat Emil Jellinek in 1901. When Henry Ford brought the family car to the masses, the upper-class shifted to chauffeur-driven limousines, followed by today’s on-demand, high-end black car services that eschew the inconveniences of vehicle ownership. The logical leap forward in the luxury travel industry expanded on the lifestyle upgrade and limitless opportunity presented by a car service. Enter JetSmarter.
Headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, JetSmarter is disrupting the private jet market with a smartphone app that connects savvy clients with both scheduled and on-demand air travel. Their innovative business model helps aircraft owners, pilots, and charter companies capitalize on otherwise-lost flight hours and empty legs by offering them to passengers for direct booking. Clients can search for flights, book a seat (or an entire jet), and pay right from their mobile device. This concept is about more than comfort, or money; it’s about the smart use of time and resources, which benefits all parties involved.
The modern affluent will look for more than luxury-he or she will value what is scarce for any entrepreneur: time. While air travel is often preferred, and sometimes necessary, the hours tacked on to both ends of a commercial flight, combined with long lines, large crowds and the inconvenience of checked luggage, always result in wasted time. With private jet travel, you’re always guaranteed to save time and avoid all those commercial inconveniences.
Beyond the benefits inherent to private air travel, JetSmarter’s jet-sharing options offer unparalleled networking opportunities for those looking to close a deal. ”You fly with other entrepreneurs, disrupters and shakers-and-movers,” explains Petrossov in a recent Forbes.com interview. ”Business transactions happen on practically every flight.” With a client list of royal families, music industry moguls, and Hollywood elite, JetSmarter clients know that what happens during the flight can bring more value than the flight itself.
Since Sergey Petrossov founded the company in 2013, JetSmarter has expanded rapidly into a global travel market ripe for innovation. The smartphone app has been downloaded more than 800,000 times, with 20,000+ unique passengers flying in any given 12-month period. With access to more than 3,000 aircrafts, 150+ domestic and international routes, and a staggering 90% membership renewal rate, the innovative company enables people to book on-demand flights around the world, while offering more of a lifestyle than a traditional service.
