Aircraft version Uber jetsmarter won the Saudi Royal Investment-htc802w

"The plane version of Uber JetSmarter by the Saudi royal family investment Sina Technology News Beijing time on February 23rd morning news, the jet sharing service JetSmarter has just received the Saudi royal family $26 million 100 thousand investment, the company with the Uber in a similar way to provide private jet services. JetSmarter founder Sergei Petrosov (Sergey Petrossov) said that most of the use of private aircraft is not so much. Some parking at the airport, pick up some empty flight. These empty seats and planes cost less than the regular rental price, similar to the first class ticket price of regular flights. "We think it would be a subversive service if we could provide additional supply to the business class passengers on regular flights." Petro Sow said. The 27 year old Petro Sow will be compared to JetSmarter Uber Black, which specializes in the use of Mercedes Benz S and Cadillac XTS and other luxury cars to provide limousine service users. Jay-Z, a famous rapper, is also one of the investors of JetSmarter. The company plans to expand its business to the Middle East, Asia and Europe with the new financing. The Saudi royal family also took part in the company’s $20 million financing last July. Petro Sow was inspired by the experience of renting a private jet in 2009: he filled out all forms and made reservations by fax. JetSmarter was originally a relatively simple form of aircraft leasing, then bought additional capacity for users, then sold vacant seats, and made a round-trip plan for hot routes from New York to Miami. For example, the price of Learjet 45 on March 1st is $1990, and at least 4 seats are available for sale. JetSmarter provides all the seats available, and offers free final tickets to members who pay $9000 annually. The company will start offering European routes from London to Paris and Paris to Geneva from April, providing flights between Saudi Arabia and Dubai, Riyadh, in December last year. Petro Sow plans to start serving in Hongkong in April this year and to enter Moscow early next year. Petro Sow’s booking system provides some additional steps to make private jet travel more flexible and lower than NetJet’s service price, which is a luxury airline business under Berkshire Hathaway. NetJets and its competitor, Flexjet, will sell aircraft shares to the rich and the corporate customers, thus providing flight time. JetSmarter system has 3100 jet aircraft, the company’s application downloads about 350 thousand times, last year about 35 thousand passengers transported, the members increased by 135% in the previous quarter. Petro Sow predicts that the cost will continue to decline as more and more customers want to reduce empty seats and spare planes. "Me"

“飞机版Uber”JetSmarter获沙特王室投资   新浪科技讯 北京时间2月23日上午消息,喷气式飞机共享服务JetSmarter刚刚获得了沙特王室2610万美元的投资,该公司采用与Uber类似的方式提供私人飞机服务。   JetSmarter创始人谢尔盖・佩特洛索夫(Sergey Petrossov)表示,多数私人飞机的使用量都没有那么多。有的停放在机场,有的空载飞行接客。这些空出来的座位和飞机的价格低于常规租赁价格,与常规航班的头等舱机票价格相仿。   “我们认为,如果能为常规航班的商务舱乘客提供额外供给,就将成为一项颠覆性的服务。”佩特洛索夫说。   27岁的佩特洛索夫将JetSmarter比作Uber Black,后者专门使用奔驰S级和凯迪拉克XTS等豪华轿车为用户提供专车服务。   著名饶舌歌手Jay-Z也是JetSmarter的投资人之一。该公司计划借助这笔新的融资将业务扩大到中东、亚洲和欧洲。沙特王室去年7月也曾参与过该公司2000万美元的融资。   佩特洛索夫的灵感源自2009年的一次租赁私人飞机的经历:他当时填写了各种表格,而且通过传真进行预订。JetSmarter起初只是一种较为简单的飞机租赁方式, 后来为用户购买额外的运力,然后出售空余座位,并为纽约到迈阿密的热门航线制定往返计划。   例如,3月1日的Learjet 45航班价格为1990美元,至少有4个座位可供出售。JetSmarter提供的都是原本空余的座位,也可以向支付9000美元年费的会员提供免费的最后的剩票。   该公司将从4月开始提供伦敦-巴黎和巴黎-日内瓦的欧洲航线,他们已于去年12月提供了沙特利雅得和阿联酋迪拜之间的航班。佩特洛索夫计划于今年4月开始在香港提供服务,并于明年初进军莫斯科。   佩特洛索夫的预订系统提供了一些额外的步骤,让私人喷气式飞机的旅行变得更加灵活,也比NetJet的服务价格更低,后者是伯克希尔-哈撒韦旗下的一项豪华航空业务。NetJets及其竞争对手Flexjet会将飞机的股份出售给富豪和企业客户,从而为其提供飞行时间。   JetSmarter的系统中共有3,100架喷气式飞机,该公司的应用下载量约为35万次,去年运送旅客约3.5万人,上季度会员增长135%。佩特洛索夫预计,随着越来越多的客户希望降低空座和空余飞机数,成本将会继续下降。   “我们实现了私人喷气式飞机的民主化,让多达250万原本乘坐头等舱和商务舱的人可以承受这种交通方式。”佩特洛索夫说,“下一阶段,我们希望让价格更加亲民,最多服务于1500万人。”(书聿)相关的主题文章:
