Sergey Petrossov and His Private Aviation Dream, JetSmarter
Sergey Petrossov is the founder and CEO of JetSmarter, which is a private flight facilitation firm. JetSmarter operates through a mobile app, from where the company’s members can book private and shared flights through a few taps on their smartphone screen.
Who is Sergey Petrossov?
Having earned a spot on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, Petrossov has established a reputation for himself in the business sector. The 30-year-old entrepreneur has earned a revered spot, especially in the aviation sector by helming JetSmarter, which received a $1.5 billion valuation in the past.
Apart from establishing JetSmarter in 2012, Sergey Petrossov is also known for founding two other IT projects. The two IT projects are considered as Petrossov’s most prominent ventures apart from JetSmarter, where one of them was an online chat system, while the other one was a distance-learning platform.
But those are not the only other ventures that Sergey Petrossov launched in his impressive career. In fact, Petrossov’s first-ever business came in the form of a tire rim import and export firm, which he established when he was still a teenager. Along with it, he was also associated with a few other business opportunities – but it cannot be argued that his most successful business outing remains JetSmarter through and through.
What is JetSmarter?
It is because JetSmarter was such a revolutionary idea that it simply took the world by storm. Whether it was top tier celebrities such as Kim Kardashian who wanted to fly in style, or high profile businesspeople who wanted to get to their destination faster, everyone welcomed JetSmarter as their primary choice of flying privately.
Since JetSmarter allowed its customers to book chartered flights on their own or share flights with other A-List customers, it became one of the most popular apps within those with the spending power to afford it. That was one of the reasons why the company received amazingly positive press coverage during the first few months of its public launch. Sergey Petrossov continues to ensure that JetSmarter customers receive the same level of service quality, and aims to grow the company’s operations further in the future.
