Initiating your first shared private jet flight

Airly is Australia’s first private aviation startup that enables members to initiate or opt into a shared private jet flight for the price of business class.

If you’re unfamiliar with our private jet membership, click here to learn more.

This article is designed to be a short tutorial on how to initiate your first flight on our private jet app.

How to initiate your first shared private jet flight

Log into the Airly app, and scroll down to the ‘Travel in Style’ section. Select ‘SHARED FLIGHT’ and then tap the gold ‘Book a Flight’ button.

Shared private jet Step One

Next, select your departure and arrival airports. We’ll only show the airports available under the SHARED program here.

Shared private jet Step Two

Once your route is set it’s time to select a date. When you click the DD/MM/YYYY field you’ll be shown a calendar which may also have orange and green dots on particular days.

These dots indicate if there’s a pending (orange) or activated (green) SHARED flight already initiated on that particular day along with the price per person.

Shared private jet Step Three

Once you select the date, provide the number of passengers travelling and click ‘Search’.

Shared private jet Step Four

Next in view will be the flight initiation and results page.

Below the flight initiation window are a list of pending or activated SHARED flights that match your request on or around your dates.

If any of the existing flights don’t suit, go back to the top of the screen and click ‘Initiate now’.

You’ll then be asked to provide a departure time. So enter that and click continue (remembering to stick with 24 hour format).

Shared private jet Step Six

Finally you will see a summary of the flight that will be initiated.

You can provide the preferred payment method before agreeing to the terms and selecting ‘Initiate’.

Shared private jet Step Seven

From here a flight will be initiated and other members will be notified and invited to opt in.

No payment will be made till the flight is activated.

Now is the time to sit back and let our app and member care team process your request and work to activate your flight.

If you wish to review the flight or share the details with other friends who are on Airly’s SHARED private jet membership you will find this pending flight under ‘My Trips’ tab.

If you’re unsure, just reach out to your member care team for advice.

Never miss a private jet empty leg

If you signed up to the Airly private jet app chasing a discounted one-way flight you may be missing out, for one of two reasons.

The first reason is because someone booked the one-way before we got a chance to promote it.

The other, and more likely reason, is because you weren’t notified by the app.

The app looks for those who have searched a particular route, and also looks for the user’s home airport. If your home airport matches the flight’s arriving or departing airport you’ll receive a notification.

But we need to know where your home airport is, so this article will explain how to set your home airport in several taps.

How to set your home airport on the Airly app

First of all, log into the app, then tap ‘Account’.

Next tap settings.

Then tap update profile.

Here you can keep your details up to date. But for this demonstration let’s update your home airport.

You’ll be invited to start typing your home airport, or IATA code (e.g. SYD for Sydney’s Mascot Airport, or BWU for Bankstown). Begin typing and you’ll see the available options. Click the preferred airport then select ‘Save changes at the bottom’.

And you’re done!

Although you may be inclined to choose the closest airport to you, try to locate the closest major airport.

If, for example, you lived close to Parafield Airport in Adelaide we’d recommend selecting Adelaide Airport is there is a greater likelihood a private jet would fly into Adelaide (ADL) instead of the smaller Parafield.

If you’re unsure, just reach out to your member care team for advice.
