Private Air Travel, Booked A La Uber

Written by 

In the half year since private jet company Victor began operating in the U.S., the operation has grown to serve 40,000 customers from America and the U.K. And Victor doesn't intend to rest on its laurels anytime soon. The company has set its sights on claiming roughly a third of the $10 billion USD worldwide on-demand jet charter scheduling market.

That includes providing jet travel service to Cuba -- which, like Victor' other offerings, can be booked through an app, saving deep-pocketed customers the time and trouble of taking a day or more to get a quote from a broker or agent.

The company explains its novel approach to private jet travel this way: "[W]e are the only provider to offer an end-to-end charter booking on both web and mobile and our exceptional customer service means our members are always connected and in control. Unlike other providers, Victor is the only service to disclose transaction fees, operator and aircraft details offering customers total transparency and complete financial protection with no upfront commitments."

In terms of pricing, Victor says that there are no advance booking charges or hidden fees. There is a 10% fee for concierge service or empty leg flights. And travel management fees might be assessed for, say, a music group on a tour. Or simply a multi-leg trip.

Quotes are valid for 24 hours and are inclusive of landing fees, catering and taxes.

Billing itself as the "Uber of private jets," Victor recently landed at the number 15 spot in the London Sunday Times Tech Track 100 list. The company's CEO was quoted as saying, "I expect the business to turn over an estimated $65m (£42.3m) in 2016.”
