The allure of flying private is huge, considering how uncomfortable the commercial flying experience has become. However, people are not keen on flying private because of the perception of being fleeced. Well, this is changing now.
With companies like JetSmarter, access to a private jet flight has become a lot easier and affordable. That has been particularly true for the millennials and the uber-cool, Instagram citizens of the world.
Think about booking a private jet with a tap on your mobile screen, and receiving complete support from aviation experts and a personal concierge team. Well, that’s exactly what JetSmarter does.
Reckoned as the ‘Uber for private jets’, JetSmarter offers a truly unique and bespoke travel experience. It offers 4,000 free flights each month to its members with access to flights daily. The company looks forward to ‘build the future of private air travel, so the world can experience aviation as it was meant to be’.
JetSmarter has four products, namely, Charter Broking, Shared Charter, Shared Shuttles, and Jet Deals. Charter Broking allows you to book the entire jet. On the other hand, you can also sell the spare seats to strangers, buy seats on scheduled flights, share with strangers or access last-minute flights availing the options of Shared Charter, Shared Shuttles, Jet Deals respectively.
This business model is particularly intriguing since you are booking an unused private jet thus removing several bottlenecks on part of the jet provider and the demand of private jets. This in fact directly tackles the commercial airline models since a private jet service is obviously better than a regular airplane.
Moreover, JetSmarter clearly markets itself as the paragon of getting you a luxury lifestyle. Considering how they pivot celebrities into their market appeal, JetSmarter can have you hooked through its services.
Providing an array of thoughtful services in shared charter flight or a private one, JetSmarter has emerged as a true disruptor in the space. It also offers the exclusive option of a JetShuttle, which allows the members to share a chartered aircraft at no additional charge.
Downloading the company’s app on iOS or Android, you can book a private jet within a few hours of departure. Just like Uber, the JetSmarter app is easy to use.
With the tokens available on the app, users get the option of free shared flights, on the condition that they can only reserve two flights in advance. Every member gets two tokens to reserve flights.When their flight completes, they can refresh the app to use their tokens on another set of flights. Also, the company’s website lets you estimate the fare between two airports.
You can dabble with their services or just get on board (pun intended) through their several packages.
