The mobile app for Skyjet, a leading provider of on-demand private jet charters, won the “Best Mobile Travel User Experience” category at EyeforTravel’s 2016 Mobile Innovation in Travel Awards. The Skyjet app, the first of its kind in the private jet charter industry to integrate with Apple Pay, allows travelers to book a private jet with the touch of a finger.
“We are proud to have won the Best Mobile Travel User Experience award from a field of finalists that included some of the biggest names in travel,” said Skyjet President Greg Richman. “The award recognizes our app, which offers a faster, safer and more efficient experience than traditional charter booking.”
The Skyjet app leverages native iPhone features including Apple Pay, GPS and push notifications to produce a seamless booking experience. The app empowers clients to shop intelligently in what can be a complex market by providing comparative insights into the cost of chartering a private jet. Within seconds of entering their desired itinerary, the app provides users with instant price estimates based on current market pricing and what other clients recently paid for their trips.
