App allows you to book a private jet

JetSmarter, a private jet booking app, is aiming to become an ‘Uber in the sky’, making private flying accessible to more than just the current 1% of the population.

Since its launch, JetSmarter has had over 350,000 app downloads, growing monthly by 15-20%. This year, they are looking to expand their options and reach more potential jet setters via TV, in-app promotions and social media. They have also acquired some star power via influencer endorsement from Jay Z and a certain Kardashian.

Our take

The public has fallen for Uber’s convenience, price and accessibility. With JetSmarter’s simplistically designed app, relatively cheap price tag and innovative approach to marketing, there’s no reason why the company won’t succeed as well. The app is perfect for frequent business travellers, retirees or impulsive travellers keen to live the jet-setting life.
