[Avionics Magazine 09-20-2016] Provider of on-demand private jet charter services XOJET has announced a strategic alliance with private jet online marketplace JetSmarter, to combine XOJET's service and fleet operations with JetSmarter's digital distribution capabilities. As part of the alliance, XOJET has named JetSmarter as the exclusive digital distribution channel for the company's fleet of super mid-size jets. In return, XOJET program clients will gain access to JetSmarter's suite of benefits.
At the core of the partnership is an XOJET-branded mobile app, powered by JetSmarter, which will allow XOJET program clients to book real-time charter on XOJET's fleet of Citation X and Challenger 300 jets. Additionally, XOJET clients can book shared charter flights, shuttle flights by the seat and take advantage of last-minute deals via the JetSmarter app. In return, JetSmarter members will receive real-time availability and preferred pricing on par with XOJET's Preferred Access and Elite Access program clients, available to book through the JetSmarter app.
Access to XOJET's charter fleet will be available on the JetSmarter app starting Oct. 1. The XOJET app will launch in early 2017. Both apps will be available on iOS and Android.
