If you've ever been to a Nigerian airport, then chances are: your flight has been delayed (for nothing less than three hours) without warning or you've had to basically start a mini-war on the ridiculously long check-in queue.
When you rush to the airport a whole hour before your flight and they delay it:
Well, 29-year-old Harold Okwa is trying to make flying in Nigeria a bit more bearable with Jetseta – a company that provides (relatively) affordable access to private air travel and helicopter shuttle services through a mobile app.
With Jetseta, Okwa seeks to give users greater control of their flying schedule as well as introducing luxury travel as an affordable way of life – and who doesn't want that?
Speaking with Diary of a Naija girl about what inspired him to create Jetseta, Okwa said:
"While working in real estate, I sat down with a client, who complained that people were no longer leasing his jet because of recession. There and then, it occurred to me that I could put together a business model that would see both owners and users benefit."
How does Jetseta work?
There are two sides to the Jetseta app: The first side is for aircraft owners – where they can monitor and manage the use of their aircrafts. The second side part is for the passengers – where they can schedule when and how they want to fly any of the private aircrafts on the platform.
