Online Marketplace for Private Jets, Helicopters Soars in India
New Delhi-based JetSetGo is a digital platform that provides an enterprise management tool for aircraft operators. It offers cloud-based scheduling, aircraft management, and advanced trip-pricing capabilities with an in-built marketplace for services and parts. It also provides customers the ability to compare and book private charters online with the ability to recoup cost of empty travel legs through a demand aggregation model that helps reduce charter costs.
The company either manages or has exclusive marketing contracts for 16 aircraft–ranging from Falcons to Hawkers to Challengers with 7 to 18 seats. This makes it the largest fleet in India, and the outfit operates anywhere from 4 to 20 flights a day, reports Forbes.
Kanika Tekriwal, CEO and Co-Founder of JetSetGo says, “We will soon be the only travel platform for high-end domestic travel and experiences,” she says. “Our focus is to cater to the $18 billion rapidly growing in-bound travel market and to the travel needs of India’s Ultra High Networth Individuals who are expected to triple in number in the next 5 years. They have very different travel needs, which the current ensemble of online travel companies and startups can really not cater to effectively.”
