Prior to JetSmarter, the process of booking for a private jet flight was cumbersome. Sergey Petrossov experienced it first hand in 2009 when he traveled in a private jet for the first time. He realized that the booking system involved a manual booking process. He saw an opportunity for an app that could ease the booking process and the idea for JetSmarter was born. He put together an app development team composed of developers he had worked with previously. He leveraged his own capital to get the project development going. JetSmarter was developed through a series of releases and in 2013, it was launched officially for public use. Today, JetSmarter is a prominent company with an advisory team, tech team, and management team with more than 100 years of combined experience.
