Linear Air Taxi

Linear Air Taxi

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Linkedin

Linear Air Taxi has built the first online marketplace connecting regional travelers frustrated with deteriorating airline service and tedious driving with approved commercial operators of 3-8 passenger technically advanced air taxi aircraft. As of fall 2018, the company represents over 2,500 air taxi aircraft across the US, Canada and the Caribbean.

Early on, the company entered into key partnerships with meta travel search sites Kayak and Hipmunk, demonstrating significant top of funnel demand and favorable customer acquisition cost. Since then, the company has invested in extending its demand generation capabilities to legacy reservation systems used by the airlines to sell through online and traditional travel agents.

These include Amadeus, SABRE and Travelport, dramatically increasing the company’s top of funnel capabilities. Linear Air Taxi’s business model is similar to other participants in the shared economy in that it owns the technology platform, and its operating partners own the aircraft.

Air taxi supply is fragmented and underutilized. The traditional booking process for air taxis is difficult, manual and inefficient.

Linear Air’s technology pioneered the provision of information on air taxi flights over an online platform to enable real time booking, fare quotes, secure payments, and customer support. Linear Air has also been successful in getting air taxi flights listed on travel sites such as Kayak and Hipmunk, and now, the systems used by the airlines to distribute through online and traditional travel agents.

The technology platform provides many benefits for air taxi operating partners as well. Primary uses of additional funding will be development of a mobile platform, expansion of demand generation marketing activities, and addition of features to benefit the company’s air taxi operating partners, including the opportunity to participate in the nascent Urban Air Mobility market for ultra-short hops of 20-100 miles.

Luggage Forward

Luggage Forward

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Linkedin

Luggage Forward was born out of the simple idea that we should all be able to enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Our philosophy is simple: An enjoyable travel experience does not involve carrying or checking your luggage.

A great vacation does not begin at the baggage carousel, or worse yet, with lost or late arriving luggage or sports equipment. In 2004, two guys who had met in high school and spent their share of time schlepping bags through airports set out to fundamentally change the way people travel.

Luggage Forward has since grown to become the leading provider of door-to-door luggage and sports equipment delivery to more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. Offering a range of specialized options allowing clients the convenience of traveling without their bags, Luggage Forward has multiple services and price points to fit the requirements of almost any itinerary.

The company has pioneered a straightforward process of forwarding luggage by leveraging proprietary technology as well as trusted relationships with a comprehensive network of agents and shippers, resulting in unparalleled reliability. Luggage Forward’s industry-leading set of online tools allows clients to generate pricing, securely book online and track luggage real-time.

Powered by the proprietary Automated Routing Control™ system, the Luggage Forward website is able to instantly identify the most reliable, convenient and cost-effective method of shipment for each individual booking. Beginning in 2009, Luggage Forward embarked on a strategy of consolidation of the then-fragmented luggage shipping industry.

Ultimately, seven different brands have been acquired so far. The combined industry experience of these companies approaches 50 years.
