NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JetSmarter, the world's largest private aviation community, reports triple-digit growth in seat bookings, as the company continues its momentum of dominating the private jet-sharing economy.
Since its launch in 2013 as a members-only, on-demand flight sharing app, the platform has grown rapidly and evolved with additional features and services. Earlier this year, the company expanded its flights to the public, allowing non-members to create and share flights with other travelers, without the commitment and annual fee of membership. As a result, JetSmarter has experienced four-times month-over-month growth in the number of non-member seats booked on private jets since non-members were granted ability to access the services.
JetSmarter's seat bookings have already grown by 116% year over year and shared flight frequency has also increased more than 20%. This growth is driven through on-demand flight creation where members and non-members alike can crowdsource flights on their own time.
A market leader in the flight-sharing economy, JetSmarter democratized private aviation by making private jet travel affordable and accessible. The JetSmarter experience remains unmatched in the industry as flyers can arrive at the terminal just 15 minutes before takeoff, skipping airport lines, and saving time while enjoying luxury travel from start to finish.
JetSmarter connects fliers to more than 300 weekly shared flights with over 800 air carrier partners globally and routes to and from 170+ countries worldwide. The platform will soon be adding desktop booking capabilities to provide on-demand searching and booking flexibility.
