“While at Gulfstream, I completed my master’s in Aeronautical Sciences from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and subsequently an M.B.A. from the University of South Carolina. In 2016, we relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina, where I transitioned into HondaJet as a sales executive. While there, I recognized a void in the marketplace, and after two years there, I left in 2017 to launch Jet It and JetClub (our international company), along with my co-founder, Vishal Hiremath. We started with just the two of us and 2 employees and currently have an extremely diverse group of 58 team members.”
“We have seen our business grow 300% in the 2nd and 3rd quarter of this year. And while the private jet travel industry has not increased in total volume, Jet It has seen exponential interest in prospective customers actively seeking a solution to their travel needs,” he said.
The innovative business model that allows clients to own a piece of a jet offering them a flexible schedule and lower flight costs has put the company on track to grow its North American fleet to double digits by the end of 2020. “We believe that the consumers will continue to seek additional forms of alternative travel that will allow them to protect them and their families from the potential effects of the virus. As a result, we believe this will heighten awareness around companies such as Jet It, further driving our growth,” says Gonzales.
