Sergey Petrossov is the founder, CEO, and chairman of JetSmarter, a revolutionary jet booking company that helps ease the hassle involved in booking charter flights. However, he did not get here by chance. Having seen a gap in the industry, he hoped in to help solve it and in the process create a brand that would help both the flight owners and their clients.
Sergey Petrossov worked in the aviation industry briefly before venturing on his own. Before this, he was involved in IT projects where he helped develop various apps and websites for his clients. However, he finally got a breakthrough when he flew a private jet for the first time. He noticed how cumbersome the brick-and-mortar model of booking such flights was. Petrossov could not understand why with the development of technology no one had thought of making use of this to help make the process more convenient.
Sergey Petrossov took it upon himself and capitalized on this opportunity by coming up with JetSmarter. Using his tech-savvy hands and his previous experience in IT as well as serving in the aviation industry, Sergey Petrossov came up with a user-friendly app that made it possible for private jet travelers to book flights with top rated operators.
In his bid to test the waters, Petrossov started off with a beta version of the app by releasing it to a closed group of travelers. Following the positive reviews of the same, he decided to go full swing and made JetSmarter a full-fledged business. He went ahead to collaborate and partnered with various vendors and built up a recruiting team that helped him finally launch the app officially in March 2013.
Since then, JetSmarter has been seamlessly connecting travelers with private jet operators around the world. It makes use of unique business strategies to keep their clients contented and this has kept them in business to date.
