Airly to Launch Affordable On-demand Private Jet Flights

Airly, a travel booking startup based in Melbourne is all set to make travelling in a luxury jet inexpensive to the travellers. The company has already registered more than 200 members for Jetshare, its on-demand private jet platform just within one week.

The logic behind this move is that the startup can give seats or also a full aircraft on empty flights by using the empty return-legs of the flights. The company’s co-founder Luke Hampshire, has stated that they want to enable the common people to have access to private jets and not just celebrities and billionaires. The company was established in 2015, and offers flights which come with flight attendants and no specific check-in times, which permits the passengers to notify the pilot in case of late arrival. This also creates a more intimate and friendly atmosphere as communication with the pilot is possible.

However, this membership-based startup will not be competing with budget airfares and the prices will remain same as that of the business-class fares. Currently, the company charges 5% commission on their flights, but in a couple of months, they will be charging only membership fees.

They also plan to expand their business and present helicopter flights and international trips in the near future as soon as the Jetshare business model gets going.
