FlyJets, an aviation marketplace and travel planning system, has launched its Version 2.0 web application with a new fleet of features for charter jets and helicopter flights. FlyJets is the product of Fly I Corporation (d/b/a FlyJets), a New York State Benefit Corporation with the goal of facilitating access to air travel. The company is focused on aircraft utilisation, sustainability and vehicles of the future.
FlyJets utilises proprietary aircraft data, dynamic location sourcing, distance and time to automate non-scheduled flights anywhere in the world. The FlyJets system utilises the benefits of automation and technology-enabled network effects to guarantee the lowest point-to-point charter rates available and enable travellers to take full advantage of empty leg discounts.
“With the release of our new features, we are increasingly focused on providing value to flyers and aircraft providers via a unique software platform,” says FlyJets founder and CEO Jessica Fisher. “We are modernising and democratising access to air travel, and we are effectively preparing for the future of flight, for the forthcoming personal planes, eVTOL aircraft, consumer flying and piloting needs of the future. We aim to grow our offerings in keeping with advancements in technology and transportation.”
This year, as consumer flyers increasingly turn to charter aviation in an effort to reduce contact points, the travel industry is pivoting to provide new options. As charter aviation becomes a necessity product for many travellers, FlyJets maintains three primary objectives: to make the air charter industry more accessible: less expensive, more efficient and more transparent; to enable increased utilisation rates for aircraft providers; and to integrate a multitude of aircraft booking options into one comprehensive platform.
Membership is free, with no upfront payment required. “At its core, FlyJets is a benefit corporation; we actively endeavour to deliver positive impact, and our environmental, social and governance goals are inherent in everything we do,” Fisher explains. “We hope to set a standard for business model generation in the future.”
FlyJets' FlyRewards system and FlyGreen energy initiative are intended to effectively establish the world's first carbon offset and, ultimately, green fuel subsidy. Specifically, the system will enable those FlyJets members who choose to offset their flight and, in the future, fly with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and green fuel alternatives, to earn additional currency-equivalent points toward future bookings, above the number of FlyRewards that they ordinarily achieve with each flight booking.
