SurfAir grew quickly and is already launching its beta this month. It’s starting with six destinations. 500 people were selected to participate. It’s a subscription model, just like Netflix. For less than $1000 per month, members can fly multiple trips between California destinations on a private Pilatus 8-seater aircraft. Passengers drive right up to the aircraft, where a valet parks their car and takes their luggage. They’re all pre-screened, so all they have to do is board the aircraft, and they’re at their destination within an hour with a car waiting for them as they exit the plane.
Who’s the target audience? It’s targeting high-level entrepreneurs, executives, and venture capitalists. SurfAir wants to give first-priority to the who’s who, in order to create an environment prime for networking and relationship-building. People who travel four-to-five times per month would benefit the most from this service.
