Jay Z’s Private Jet Startup to Begin New York-to-Boston Service
JetSmarter, the private jet startup backed by Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z, will begin offering service between Boston and New York this September.
The Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based company, which counts Mr. Carter and the Saudi royal family among its investors, will allow users to reserve seats aboard private jets from New York to Boston and Washington, the Boston Business Journal reports.
“We are very excited to continue the expansion of our JetShuttle service into the D.C. and Boston regions, offering an increasingly extensive and exciting schedule for our customers across the US,” said 27-year-old CEO and founder Sergey Petrossov in a statement.
JetSmarter has access to more than 3,000 jets with fewer than 19 seats. For an annual fee of $9,000, members receive a certain number of seats on scheduled flights, while users who are not users can use JetSmarter’s mobile app to book private jet flights on-demand.
