Skyhour, the next-generation gifting platform for air travel, has recently launched its platform that will revolutionize the way people gift and receive flight hours. Skyhour enables endless travel possibilities to give and receive flight hours that can be used by anyone, anywhere, across 350 airlines. Skyhour offers a seamless and smart way to gift flights - one shyhour represents one hour in the sky, at a fixed cost of only $60 per hour.
“The digital space for air travel has been struggling to keep up with the pace of technology - Skyhour is a welcome push to the industry, that will help make gifting travel seamless and enjoyable,” said Skyhour Co-Founder and CTO David Nogueira.
Skyhour was founded in 2016 and is backed by JetBlue Technology Ventures (JTV), the corporate venture subsidiary of JetBlue Airways, which invests in, incubates and partners with early stage startups at the intersection of technology and travel. They incubate and partner with early stage startups at the intersection of technology, travel and hospitality to improve the entire travel experience.
“We are always on the lookout for innovative concepts and ideas that have the potential to transform aspects of how we travel,” JetBlue Technology Ventures President Bonny Simi. “We can see this completely changing the travel-gifting experience.” In addition to financial investment, which will accelerate Skyhour’s global growth and presence in the market leading into the busiest travel season of the year, JTV brings deep domain expertise into the Skyhour ecosystem.
“Skyhour is the gift that moves you. It is for people who believe the best gifts in life are intangible,” said Skyhour Co-Founder and CEO Fernando Camara. “By gifting hours through Skyhour, you are giving someone the opportunity to realize a travel dream, no matter how big or small, regardless of the destination. What’s more, your gifted hours make you a part of the journey to get them there.”
