The ubair app is the first that allows flyers to instantly hail a jet at the tap of an app. With no up-front fees or deposit requirements, users access fixed, nationwide, one-way rates and availability that were previously only accessible through jet card and fractional programs.
Ubair LLC Co-founder and CEO Justin Sullivan, formerly president of Private FLITE, stated, "Today's sophisticated flyer demands the utmost in cost benefits, flexibility, simplicity and safety standards, and ubair delivers all of that in an instant - our goal is to drive exceptional utilization for our aircraft owners."
The ubair app allows users to search for flights in the USA, Canada and the Caribbean, and in just seconds compare prices between six categories of aircraft. Ubair offers aircraft from a baseline piston aircraft (ubairTaxi) to an intercontinental Gulfstream (ubairHeavy), with several categories in between. Users can select amenities such as gourmet catering, WiFi and the newest planes (ubairElite), with instant, paperless confirmation.
Ubair has also introduced ubairOwners, an optional ownership program that offers a turnkey aircraft and charter revenue management system for frequent travelers who can buy all, or part of, an asset in the ubair system.
"Owning a jet with ubair saves time and makes money. As an owner of a Falcon 50 in the ubairOwners system, I fly essentially 100 hours per year for free, with huge tax benefits," said Andrew Czekaj, chairman of Cambridge Holdings.
The ubair senior team comprises seasoned executives from both commercial and private aviation.
Co-founder David Tait OBE helped write the business plan for Virgin Atlantic Airways and was the first person Sir Richard Branson hired for the new carrier. David spent 18-years in the U.S. as executive vice president and executive director, successfully building the airline from the ground up. Since 2008 David has led 'consultait', his own aviation brand building and marketing consultancy.
Ubair's marketing director, Mark Greenberg, is a marketing and branding specialist with more than 28-years of service to companies such as Virgin Atlantic, JetBlue, Virgin America and Virgin Galactic. Mark is also an award-winning and Pulitzer-nominated photojournalist.
Maria White, ubair's operations director previously directed customer support at Private FLITE and Private Jet Services Group. Maria has a 20-year track record of providing world-class client service in the travel arena.
