What is JetSmarter? Private Jet Rideshare – Jetshare 2019
Just imagine — you have the cash, you wake up one morning and suddenly…you feel like hitting Miami that afternoon with a group of friends.
Well, with the click of an app, as long as you have the funds, that fantasy can now become a reality.
Unlike ground services, such as Uber or Lyft, JetSmarter will bring you just about anywhere by air, on your own private plane. For some, their next trip can be arranged in as little as six hours — with a wide range of options available. Sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it?
JetSmarter — the Uber of Private Planes
At age 26, Sergey Petrossov started JetSmarter (and currently serves as its CEO). Petrossov created a service that allows travelers to skip the hassle associated with ordinary airports (baggage check, lines, security) and all the other negative aspects that come along with standard air travel.
After selling his first IT company, Petrossov began flying regularly in private jets.
He enjoyed the service (and freedoms) associated with Private Jet travel – however, he found that booking a private flight itself was a less-than-efficient process.
Petrossov noticed that – not only did he have to speak to brokers (and fill out plenty of paperwork) – but he also found it hard to track down safety history in terms of the jets he was taking.
Effectively – he wanted more control over how he booked private flights, and when (and how) he flew.
After meeting some friends in the private jet industry (who agreed to share company information, such as plane GPS coordinates, safety ratings, scheduling and more) Petrossov began to upload all acquired data into a new proprietary system. By 2012, he began asking friends to try out the app. When it began receiving extremely favorable reviews in high-tech circles — Petrossov knew he was on to something.
From that point, he wasted no time. By March 2013, JetSmarter was open to the public, and by 2017, JetSmarter announced its exclusive partnership with TMC Jets.
So now, with the touch of a button, it’s possible to book a TMC aircraft for nearly any destination you’d like, at any time you’d like (*based on current inventory and your personal preferences, of course).
So, how does it all work?
