Few can acclaim a successful, billion-dollar start-up for an industry based solely on word-of-mouth under the age of 30. Sergey Petrossov can and does.
The 29-year old entrepreneur used his networking skills and relationships in the community to test the popularity of the idea of a digital platform to request private jets, set one’s own flying scheduling, and share a flying experience with like-minded people. The response was overwhelming and has since blossomed into a country club of sorts for private travelers of the friendly skies.
In 2009, the south-Florida based resident sparked an idea to create a digital platform for private jet travel that has since grown into a community of individual travelers with unique flying experiences. Petrossov saw a need to modernize how clients requested charters. When he dove deeper, he saw how this platform could also improve private aviation efficiency.
At the time, seeking a private jet used out-of-date methods that do not reflect the technological savviness or time-sensitive needs of its clients. Additionally, private flights were not running the most optimally. Jets could be flying with more passengers, more often if only passengers were knowledgeable of such routes to fit their needs.
JetSmarter sought to solve those problems and do a little more. Sergey Petrossov birthed a vision that would uniquely cater to its clientele, coined “end-to-end” service. The company focuses on the value of transcending the traditional flying experience by curtailing to the desires of its clients.
JetSmarter members enjoy luxury in-flight services as well as post-landing assistance through a partnership with five-star restaurants and residence accommodations, without the clients’ need to lift a finger following their initial reservation request. JetSmarter CEO, Sergey Petrossov, is expanding private travel to offer a one-of-a-kind travel experience.
