NEW YORK, NY — Skyjet, a leading provider of on-demand private jet charters, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Travel App category as part of The 14th Annual American Business Awards. The Skyjet app, the first of its kind in the private jet charter industry to integrate with Apple Pay, allows travelers to book a private jet with the touch of a finger.
“We are honored to be selected for this prestigious Stevie Award,” said Skyjet President Greg Richman. “The award recognizes our app, which offers a faster, safer and more efficient experience than traditional charter booking.”
The Skyjet app leverages native iPhone features including Apple Pay, GPS and push notifications to produce a seamless booking experience. Within seconds of entering their desired itinerary, the app empowers users to select the exact type of jet they need from the custom fleet, see the price and book their flight instantly by using Apple Pay, the easy and more secure way to pay.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Monday, June 20.
