Skyhour inspires people to gift what’s possible and celebrate what moves people to get there

Skyhour, the next-generation gifting platform for air travel, has launched today to revolutionize the way people gift and receive flight hours. Enabling people to gift air travel to anyone, anywhere for just $60 an hour, Skyhour inspires endless travel possibilities to destinations worldwide. Skyhour is backed by JetBlue Technology Ventures, the corporate venture subsidiary of JetBlue Airways, which invests in, incubates and partners with early stage startups at the intersection of technology and travel.

“Skyhour is the gift that moves you. It is for people who believe the best gifts in life are intangible,” said Skyhour Co-Founder and CEO Fernando Camara. “By gifting hours through Skyhour, you are giving someone the opportunity to realize a travel dream, no matter how big or small, regardless of the destination. What’s more, your gifted hours make you a part of the journey to get them there.”

Founded in 2016, Skyhour offers a seamless and smart way to gift flights - one skyhour represents one hour in the sky, at a fixed cost of only $60 per hour. All skyhour recipients have complete freedom to book their flight on one of 350 international and domestic airlines directly through the app or web site.

“The digital space for air travel has been struggling to keep up with the pace of technology - Skyhour is a welcome push to the industry, that will help make gifting travel seamless and enjoyable,” said Skyhour Co-Founder and CTO David Nogueira.

In addition to financial investment, which will accelerate Skyhour’s global growth and presence in the market leading into the busiest travel season of the year, JTV brings deep domain expertise in the hospitality, travel and airline ecosystem to skyhour.

“We are always on the lookout for innovative concepts and ideas that have the potential to transform aspects of how we travel” JetBlue Technology Ventures President Bonny Simi. “We can see this completely changing the travel-gifting experience.”

Skyhours can be purchased via the app or by visiting www.skyhour.com. The app is currently available for iOS devices via the app store, an Android version is in development.
