Jet management and card membership provider Jet Linx has introduced a new empty-seat marketing program as part of its revised mobile application. Called OpenSeat Exchange, it offers the company’s jet owners and members the ability to buy or sell empty seats on its flights on a per-seat basis, exclusively through the app.
The company's 2,000 jet-card members and 115 aircraft owner clients can use the new app "to further improve, enrich, and elevate the Jet Linx private jet travel experience,” said Jamie Walker, president of the Nebraska-based company, adding that last year there were more than 40,000 empty seats on Jet Linx flights. “Open Seat Exchange is a solution that gives our clients the ability to buy and sell these empty seats on a per-flight, per-seat basis. It’s a secure, trusted, peer-to-peer exchange of open seats within the Jet Linx community.”
The flight-sharing program is the latest feature to be added to the app, which gives users the ability to book private jets in real-time at guaranteed hourly rates, quote future trips, arrange catering and ground transport, make changes to the flight manifest, and view and book empty legs at discounted pricing, as well as receive company news and updates.
