Paris – June 10, 2021 – Taking advantage of strong business results, Wingly Jet unleashes its next market potential for the private aviation industry
As the European travel industry rallies together to chart a path towards recovery, Wingly takes advantage of its strong business results in the last 18 months and launches Wingly Jet to bring certain strategic destinations unreachable by train or traditional airlines closer together, and making them more accessible than ever.
Wingly Jet will offer one-way seats on private chartered flights and disrupt the private jet business, with its bundled traditional offer. It will open up one-way flights in private jets, which were until now only available by chartering the entire aircraft and paying for the full round trip. Instead Wingly Jet allows for single-seat bookings that wouldn’t otherwise be available on a private jet.
The first step of Wingly Jet’s go-to-market strategy is to offer flight routes operated by partnered aviation companies with immediate flight capabilities starting from Geneva, Brest and very soon London.
Germany’s Wingly Jet offer is being validated and will follow.
After having gathered a better picture of the top sources of demand for travel routes, and the destinations within countries that travellers are most interested in visiting, Wingly will then expand its flying network.
Wingly Jet hits three different growing needs for passengers:
- Speed – No check-in lines, flexible luggage allowances and on average 4 times faster than any railway connection.
- Convenience – It directly connects medium- or small-sized cities without making their visitors fly through a bigger hub.
- Affordability – The traditional private jet price structure has fallen apart, since Wingly Jet unbundles its long-established offer and opens single seats and one-way flights offers to the market. Travelling via private jet can often show starting cost at the 3000€ mark, the innovative Wingly Jet concept will guarantee the lowest seat price on the market showing price per seat goal between 450 and 800€ for less than two hours flights.
Commenting on the launch, Emeric de Waziers, co-founder said, “With Wingly Jet we are creating the possibility to book a seat on a private jet rather than chartering the whole plane: this will lead to a significant price drop. As most of the jets fly with 50% seats unoccupied, Wingly Jet will contribute to reaching a better environmentally-conscious approach to seat bookings.”
The traditional bundled flight offer of private jets is no longer reasonable in the current times. This is why Wingly Jet will disrupt this market, having identified the next growth opportunity, in unison with its users’ needs. Wingly has undeniably become a major player in innovating the aviation industry since its launch in 2015 and will continue to grow. The launch of Wingly Jet as a second mainstay is just a link in a longer chain, aligned with reducing the carbon footprint. In May this year, Wingly partnered with Green Aerolease on helping to provide electric flights towards the larger public for leisure flight sharing activities.
