Global Travel Risk Summit Europe, May 2023,
3rd Annual Sustainable Business Travel Summit
Start-ups are showcasing their products and services at Business Travel Show's Launchpad. Here we find out more about an aviation entry from Andreas Kohrs, managing partner at HelloJet.
When were you launched?
We launched HelloJet in March 2017 with registering the European business aviation fleet.
How many people are working for the company?
Currently we run HelloJet with two people, both long time well known aviation experts.
Sum up what your company/product does in one sentence.
Professional business aviation at the base price with no commissions or mark-ups.
Why is it unique?
As buyers know, when it comes to charter a business jet it is very time consuming and expensive. We all want to charter the jet for the best price and need to have planning reliability as soon as possible. HelloJet is the only marketplace which gives you access to the base price of all professional BizAv operators.
We do not raise any commissions or mark-ups and due to real time availability you can book your business jet/private jet within minutes instead of hours.
What problem does it solve?
When you book a business jet today, you do not know the real commission you have to pay to the broker. You even do not know if it is the best offer or if the broker is having an side commitment with them.
With HelloJet all this is history. You will directed to the operators sales team, so nobody is able to raise a commission.
HelloJet shorten the charter process from hours to minutes.
What markets is it available in?
We are available in all European countries. The US will follow by the end of this year.
Which companies are using it already?
The most companies registered at HelloJet are machine manufacturers, ship yards, travel agencies and some high-net-worth individuals.
Currently we are talking to two of the top five EU business travel agencies about the implementation of HelloJet.
What do travel managers like about it?
If their customers are calling them with a flight demand, the travel manager is able to say if the flight demand is possible and also giving a price indication of this trip. So he is able to deliver reliable information within seconds.
