JET&CO has launched a charter flight app that allows users to choose the right aircraft, fixed- or rotary-wing, for their mission — ranging anywhere from corporate flights to medevac. JET&CO is the product of the common air operator’s desire to improve the on-demand flight market.
Through the app, users can select the aircraft type; input their point of departure and destination; departure start date and return date; number of passengers; and type of flight.
Financed by the aircraft operators themselves, the app is free to use, and is currently available with a network of aircraft in Europe, as well as a few aircraft in Africa, the Middle East and Asia; worldwide deployment is still in progress, with the U.S. market being the greater goal.
JET&CO plans to enroll at least 10,000 aircraft from around the world in the app to provide users with a wide-ranging network. Aircraft that are currently available on the platform include planes ranging from single engines to airliners, as well as various types of helicopters.
JET&CO is a new way to optimize the charter aircraft industry while reducing costs and increasing productivity for all parties involved, the company said.
