Sergey Petrossov is the 28-year-old founder of JetSmarter who says “when you go all-in as an entrepreneur, you don’t look back.” This may be true because today the company has 260 employees compared to the messily 50 they had just in 2015. JetSmarter offers four different flight routes, both scheduled and on-demand so people can make flights depending on their life schedules.
The basic idea of JetSmarter came to Sergey Petrossov back in the year 2009. He and some friends were taking a flight to South Florida and he was completely shocked that the only way to reserve the flight was to call the company directly. He noticed that the system that most of the companies were using was really complicated and confusing for the customers. That’s also when he says that he realized that your average plane was only flying about 200 hours a year when they could be flying closer to 1,200 a year. This is when it was also figured that if everything was broke up by how many seats were on the plane then the cost of the flight could be significantly cheaper for the customer.
When people ask Petrossov at what time does a JetSmarter membership become convenient for a business or frequent flyer? His response to this often asked question is “with our clientele, the financial numbers don’t always attract them to our services, its the lifestyle.” People have also asked about the New York and New Jersey area airports to figure out which ones are compatible with JetSmarter to which his response is “the most prominent private aviation airports in New York City are Teterboro and the Westchester County, White Planes.”
