Coming off the heels of its latest product launch which allows travelers to “create” and “crowdfund” their own private jet flight via mobile app, the Uber of private jets—JetSmarter—is launching new flight routes in and out of Chicago to and from 13 different cities (from Chicago Midway, Chicago Executive, DuPage, or Waukegan Regional airports). With crowdfunded flights, guests will have the option to initiate a flight and choose the date and time of the departure, while the cost can now be equally shared with other flyers—with no annual fee or membership commitment. When creating a crowdfunded flight, JetSmarter travelers will be able to search and book the newest flight routes available on the app. From Chicago, travelers can create flights to New York, Washington DC, South Florida, Boston, Naples, Orlando, Tampa, Atlanta, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Scottsdale, and Colorado. Get ready, jet set, go! For more information, visit jetsmarter.com.
With travel season in full swing, we love the new Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon collection. Enriching every aspect of the smart watch experience, the My Travel, Agenda, Step Counter, and Pollution functions create a more intuitive watch easily becoming an integral part of your every day. Most impressively, the My Travel experience groups all your travel information together in one place syncing hotel and flight/train information while the Agenda function gives an easy view of meeting time versus free time. The Step Counter function allows travelers to track distance while taking on cities by foot and the Pollution function displays the air quality index in real time. There’s even a GPS function embedded. Practicality never looked so fabulous. Find out more at us.louisvuitton.com.
