JetSmarter Business Model

JetSmarter gives an access to empty seats to its members (JetDeals) and establishes fixed routes between major cities (Jet Shuttles). New members are attracted via initial availability of flights from new JetDeals and JetShuttles.

When the popular routes grab a critical mass, the Jet App allows the members to create on-demand private jets (Shared Charter). New SharedCharter seats create new JetShuttles and JetDeals. This cycle continues in the same order. 

In case of increased demand, JetSmarter partners with other aircraft operators to service critical mass. 

With the growing expectations of consumers for private jet booking services, the industry is constantly improving. Startups like JetSmarter are coming up with new technologies and better services for the customers. The innovations of these companies are providing cheap private jet flights to the customers.
