With the booming demand for charter flights post COVID, a new platform to book business jet flights called BookMyJet has been launched with the aim to take business jet business to smaller cities of the country and bring in transparency in pricing of business jets.
Santosh K Sharma founder of BookMyJet in a statement said that due to unavailability of any reliable information about the private jet or helicopter in Tier-2 & Tier-3 cities like Bhopal, Indore, Raipur, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Rajkot, Baroda, Madurai, Bhubaneswar, Ranchi, etc., the flyers opt for alternate mode of transportation, though they have the capacity of hiring a chartered plane. And bookmyjet will revolutionize the present situation.
Many corporate houses went ahead and bought their own private jets for their own flying and rent it out too. What has, however, been missing in the general aviation market is an element of transparency pertaining to availability and pricing of the aircraft. As a result, the clients either land up flying a wrong aircraft or paying more. This major issue would be addressed by the app.
The app can not only be used to book jets but also provides information of the fleet like seating capacity, number of engines in the plane, speed, avionics, endurance, etc. and can also be used to see live locations of the aircrafts across India along with their pictures of interiors and exteriors.
India has seen a rise in the induction of large numbers of private jets in the last 7-8 years especially in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, Chennai & Kolkata.
In view of the increasing demand BookMyJet also intends to add more aircraft and helicopters, not just in India but also from other parts of Middle East, South East Asia & Europe markets in times to come.
