Meet Jetted, the future of intra-Africa air travel

Learn more about what we are doing and get to know our team.

 

Flying from city to city may seem like a nice perk for an entrepreneur or executive traveling several times a month for business. However, ask someone who flies frequently about their intra-Africa travel experiences and you’ll find their frustrations are always similar versions of the same:

  • Wasted hours at commercial airlines for check-in and security
  • Continuously cancelled and delayed flights
  • Limited direct flights with long, sometimes multiple layovers 
  • Lack of respect and appreciation shown to passengers

We listened to these stories at conferences with strangers, dinner with friends, and boardrooms with colleagues, and realized all these things have made air travel in Africa something people dread rather than adore.

We’ve all accepted these frustrations for years, believing choices were limited. If we needed to fly, we tolerate the hassles of commercial air travel. But there must be a better way.

At Jetted we are working to make intra-Africa flights quick, easy and convenient. Tell us how to help you #flyAfricaeasy.
