Online, on-demand jet booking platform Flyjets is expected to launch this month with aims to offer carbon offset and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credits to set itself apart from competitors. Under its Flyrewards system and Flygreen Energy Initiative, members choosing to offset their flights or fly using SAF will earn currency-equivalent points toward future bookings.
“At its core, Flyjets is a benefit corporation—we actively endeavor to deliver positive impact, and our environmental, social, and governance goals are inherent in everything we do,” said founder and CEO Jessica Fisher. “We hope to set a standard for business model generation in the future.”
Using a web platform—a mobile application is under development—members can post, search for, and book one-way and round-trip flights, and invite others to share a flight. It also provides for group purchasing of flights, flight bidding, route and destination searches, and messaging between users.
Fisher is a student pilot and principal at Monroe Capital. The idea for Flyjets emerged during Fisher’s introduction to a venturing course at Columbia Business School, where she earned an MBA.
