So what does this successful business JetSmarter provide? JetSmarter is a membership-based company that connects passengers that wish to charter private jets with those who provide flights. Using an app, users are able to charter flights whether it be an entire jet, or sharing a jet with other passengers. They also have sales and specials for something called “empty leg” flights. These are flights in which a jet may have flown passengers one way, for example, and now need to return to their previous destination or the jet is simply needed elsewhere in a different city. Customers can sometimes charter these “empty leg” flights at reduced rates. JetSmarter now provides services in the United States, the Middle East, and Europe. They are also quickly expanding into new areas. The company JetSmarter is now estimated to be worth over 1 billion dollars, has over 260 employees and has served over 45,000 passengers.
In short, Sergey has shown incredible ingenuity and dedication in creating a successful company and a great service that has assisted customers around the world.
