Star Jets completes real-time booking platform testing

Private jet charter company Star Jets has completed the initial beta testing of a real-time booking platform.

The testing took place over a five-month period. The company now expects to launch the online booking engine and the app for Android and Apple iOS at the beginning of the third quarter of 2018.

Ricky Sitomer, CEO of Star Jets, commented, “The depth of our experience and market resources has enabled us to carefully design a disruptive platform with no membership fees and no barriers of entry.

“Similar to commercial travel industry platforms such as Priceline, Expedia, or Kayak, the Star Jets platform will enable point-and-click booking of private jets, a trail-blazing experience for first-class world travelers.”

The company believes that the new booking engine will have a significant impact on its future growth. Star Jets recently announced its first-quarter revenue was US$1.78m, up 60% year-on-year for the period.
