Having gained a foothold in Europe as a trusted jet charter service, PrivateFly wanted to extend their services to meet the needs of smartphone users worldwide. After experiencing success with their web application, they engaged QBurst to develop the PrivateFly mobile application.
We developed mobile applications for PrivateFly across popular platforms. The application helps users pinpoint the best private aircraft at the most competitive market price.
The iOS app was developed in the Xcode environment. Core frameworks UIKit, Core Graphics, and Foundation was used to design the user interface, manage input/output, implement search, and create basic animations.
We implemented location-based features, integrated maps, and utilized third-party frameworks and APIs to integrate additional features.
The Android version was developed in Eclipse environment using Android SDK by setting up Android Virtual Device (AVD). Android SDK provides packages such as Android View and Android Animation to implement all basic functionalities. Additionally, we integrated location-based features and maps.
Following the release of the app, frequent flyers have been able to book private jets on-the-go, saving time and money in the process.
The company has been featured by BBC, CNN, Daily Telegraph as well as luxury travel magazines such as Fly Corporate and Affluent Page. PrivateFly has been recognized and awarded for innovative use of technology in the private jet charter industry.
The mobile application simplified the booking process and has been downloaded over 100,000 times since launch. App users now account for over 10% of PrivateFly’s flight revenue. The biggest ever flight booked via the app was a $500,000 multi-leg flight from the Middle East to Europe in 2013.
The client is one of Europe’s fastest growing private air charter companies. The company’s booking service integrates with a global network of over 7,000 accredited aircraft, to pinpoint the best available private aircraft at the most competitive market price.
The app emulates the major functionalities offered by the PrivateFly website.
