JetSmarter and TMC Jets Announce Exclusive Digital Partnership

JetSmarter, the world's fastest-growing private jet company announced today its exclusive strategic digital partnership with TMC Jets.  Through this partnership, TMC Jets has named JetSmarter as the exclusive digital distribution channel for the company's fleet.  JetSmarter customers will now be able to instantly book TMC Jets inventory through the JetSmarter app, which offers JetSmarter members same-or-better pricing than anywhere in the market.  

TMC Jets will provide access to its Hawker 400XP and 800XP fleet to JetSmarter.  The wholesale private jet operator was recently acquired by TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity investment platform of TPG, the global private investment firm.

The deal represents the continuing trend of private jet owner-operators partnering with digital platforms in the private aviation space.  TMC Jets' fleet and service, along with JetSmarter's unique business model of providing shared and charter flight options by way of innovative mobile app technology, make for a powerful combination, and demonstrate the rapidly expanding role of technology in private aviation.  JetSmarter's technology seeks to streamline the old-fashioned booking process while providing customers with the best rates.
