St Albans-based business aviation on-line booking platform PrivateFly has been acquired by OneSky, with PrivateFly joining forces with OneSky’s brokerage Skyjet to create one of the world’s largest digital platforms for on-demand private jet charter.
As the first business model to offer private jet booking end-to-end when it launched in 2008, PrivateFly has seen continued high sales growth over the past decade. Initially UK-focused, it has since developed multiple channels and customer bases worldwide, through localised platforms, and a multilingual team.
Skyjet has been a pioneer in aviation technology for more than 20 years, with a strong foothold in the US, and offers one of the most popular and highly-downloaded private jet booking apps.
PrivateFly co-founders Adam Twidell and Carol Cork remain with the company and will lead the combined entity, which will operate offices in both the US and Europe. They intend to leverage the extensive infrastructure and assets available within the OneSky family of brands, which also includes Sentient Jet and Flexjet.
Twidell said: “We are proud to be joining OneSky, part of Directional Aviation. This is a key strategic moment for PrivateFly and opens new opportunities for our loyal and growing base of globe-spanning users.
