Skyjet Introduces Google Pay

In the Midst of Continued Topline Growth Following an Extraordinary
2017, Private Charter Jet Company Responsible for Introducing Digital
Booking Engine to the Private Aviation Industry Becomes First to Offer
In-App Google Pay Capability

QUINCY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Skyjet,
a Directional Aviation company and a pioneer in aviation technology
since 1997, today announces that its sophisticated mobile application
has become the first in the industry to offer Google Pay,
bolstering its status as one of the most robust on the market. As the
first private aviation company to introduce Apple Pay to its mobile
application in 2015, the new capability further cements Skyjet as a
pioneer in the private aviation space and marks another milestone for
the company surrounding the successful integration of digital
currencies. The new feature provides an added layer of simplicity and
efficiency by offering customers another way to instantly book and pay
for private jet travel online.

“As the first company to introduce an on-demand online booking engine
over two decades ago, Skyjet has long been an industry leader in the
digital space. We are thrilled to pave the way once again with the
introduction of Google Pay, an integral component of the mobile payments
landscape and the preferred payment method for many of our valued
customers,” said Andrew Collins, president and CEO of Skyjet. “As we
continue to grow, we look forward to continuing to build out significant
enhancements and innovations across each of our digital platforms,
helping us to achieve our goal of exceeding the expectations of seasoned
and first-time private fliers alike.”

The introduction of the Google Pay offering, which is currently live and
functioning on Skyjet’s mobile application, is the latest example of the
company’s continued innovation driving its impressive growth, which
reached 22% YoY in 2017 and has continued through the first quarter of
2018.. The enhancement comes on the heels of the successful launch of
Skyjet Explorer in November 2017, a membership-based product offering
competitive, fixed hourly rates for private jet travel.

Google Pay is available for both Skyjet Explorer members as well as
those booking private jet travel on an as-needed basis and is a
testament to Skyjet’s commitment to making continuous digital
developments in the private aviation space. Since the company’s
inception in 1997, Skyjet has been devoted to refining and enhancing its
various digital platforms in order to meet the needs and preferences of
its clients. Offering instant trip bookings, trip and account management
capabilities, flight status and location-based push notifications, and a
24/7/365 live chat feature allowing for immediate assistance and insight
as needed, Skyjet’s full-service mobile app is already one of the most
downloaded in the private jet industry. With the new Google Pay
offering, the app will further provide users with the most flexible and
convenient way to engage with the Skyjet product, which is among the
most diversified in the field.
