The Uber of the skies

For business or pleasure, chartering a private jet to travel allows individuals to avoid the stress and hassle of regular airliners.

The benefit of using a private jet, allows for flights on demand at schedules of choice with specially trained personnel, guaranteeing the utmost discretion.

Nowadays, many travellers; businessmen, statesmen, personalities and also anonymous pressed and demanding clients elect to travel in private jet.

Renting a private jet online, like booking a holiday, is now a reality. This is certainly a sign of digital progression.

Linda Sellidj, president of Global Jet Partner and founder of Lynjet, explained that “ offers for the first time in France, a solution for both, the opacity of the rates on the business jet market and to the reality of the market itself.”

With the platform users can “seamlessly access to real-time pricing, select and compare planes according to their own criteria and book online the chosen private jet rental.”
