Flexjet partners with ArcTouch to develop feature-rich app

Flexjet LLC, offering travelers access to the world´s youngest and most luxurious fleet of private jets, has launched its new iPhone® app, now available in the App Store, the company said.

From air-to-air video of aircraft on the welcome page to the post-trip satisfaction surveys, the Flexjet app is the most sophisticated and feature-rich mobile app in the fractional private jet industry.

In just the three weeks since its launch, the Flexjet app has been adopted by 20 percent of all Flexjet Owners. Flexjet Owners using the new app now can manage their entire private jet travel experience with just a few taps.

The app can be used by current and prospective private jet Owners. Existing Owners can book trips, order catering, request ground transportation and get real-time travel notifications for upcoming trips. Along with a detailed itinerary, the app will allow Owners to see photos of their pilots, run flight-time estimates and perform destination research. In addition, the Flexjet app provides easy access to pre-flight information, directions to airport fixed-based operators (FBOs) and destination weather.

Prospective buyers can peruse the fleet, see aircraft photo galleries, aircraft statistics, cabin configurations and use the flight time estimator for dynamic aircraft comparisons.

In developing the mobile app, Flexjet´s marketing and information technology teams partnered with ArcTouch of San Francisco, the same developer that created the award-winning Skyjet app. Skyjet is a provider of on-demand private jet charters and, like Flexjet, a member of the Directional Aviation family of companies. The Skyjet app helped advance the private jet travel market by introducing such features as Apple Pay and instant price estimates based on current market pricing. ArcTouch developers called the Flexjet app one of the most feature-rich launch versions of an app that they have developed.

Flexjet first entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995, and celebrated its 22nd anniversary in May 2017. Flexjet offers fractional jet ownership and leasing.
