The site is up and running, implementing our intelligent passenger matching system called WingTips! Now you have a new travel option! Request your desired flight on a business aircraft, be grouped with other passengers to make it affordable, then fly regional trips 3-4 times faster than driving!
How PAX works
Enter trip data much like an airline app - origin and destination cities, PAX shows an estimated price for the trip.
Enter date and time range in the Earliest and Latest time boxes – click Set on the calendar screen, click Search Flight to see results. If there are Flights or Pre-Flights, they are displayed. Pre-Flights are explained below.
To see an example, search for Burbank to Santa Barbara on August 29, depart before 10am and arrive after 11am.
Pre-Flights are an intermediate step that groups passengers onto a common flight plan. There is no obligation to book a seat when you make a reservation on a Pre-Flight. When enough passengers join a Pre-Flight, the system converts it to a Flight using aircraft from our charter operator partners. You are notified about the Flight by PAX and have the option to book a seat. People with a Pre-Flight reservation get first chance at booking a seat. After reservation holders are contacted, the flight opens to the rest of the PAX community.
Crowd Scheduling! The value of PAX is from you, as you enter searches! That feeds data to WingTips, empowering it to create Pre-Flights dynamically. Help us by entering all the driving trips you have done or will be doing as Flight Searches, that you “drive but dread” - trips that take a long time and have no alternatives. While you may not get a lot of results today, feeding WingTips is needed to get it working for you!
With the launch of the site, the StartEngine campaign is wrapping up in the next few weeks as we pursue a Series A investment.
