UberJets extends service to aid those in Middle East
As the situation in Afghanistan deteriorates UberJets is making more options available for users. Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak UberJets has seen a 430% increase in first-class flyer conversions.

UberJets, a New York based private aviation booking platform, has reported a 430% increase in first-class flyer conversions since the COVID-19 outbreak began. Year on year for the second quarter UberJets has seen an increase in popularity.

Members can access their own personal flight advisor to cater to any specific request, which has been useful recently with the events unfolding in Afghanistan.

"In recent events regarding the conflict in Kabul, Afghanistan, UberJets was tasked with providing options from various members. Although the Middle East is not in UberJets service area, we were able to get options readily available, proving our commitment to timely and completely customisable needs," says Sean Sullivan, UberJets chief growth officer.

By using UberJets Let's Jet app, users can access their own virtual hangar with access to over 3,500 safety vetted aircraft for their choice. Uberjets software optimises the aircraft options in ascending price order based upon the user's specific trip request.
