Having secured a £3 million investment – the flight-sharing platform Wingly asked us to help once more with publicity.
With plans to accelerate the growth of their online platform and also to expand into the commercial charter market they were keen for some top coverage.
The aviation sector has been badly impacted by the worldwide pandemic so it was refreshing to have a positive and uplifting travel story to get out to the press.
And with staycations being the only realistic way for many people to have a holiday this summer, we felt it was not only a story for the business and trade press but one for the nationals too.
Wingly wanted the coverage to explain about their new ‘Wingly Pro’ service and how it works – their goal is to fill empty seats, improve aircraft occupancy rates whilst reducing both the carbon footprint per passenger and the cost for everyone. They also want to make flying more accessible than ever before – their vision is to reinvent the meaning of flying.
Currently the platform boasts 300,000 registered users, including 20,000 private pilots and has facilitated over 15,000 flights, with France, Germany and the UK as its largest markets.
Due to Covid-19 there were previously only limited flights on offer this year – but we can now happily report that flights are fully operating.
Our latest scoop to date has been an extensive feature in the Mail Online. This followed coverage in a variety of titles including Business Insider, FlightGlobal, Travolution, PhocusWire, Flyer, EU Startups, Fortune, Startup Around, Tech EU and Techbuzz Ireland.
And, we’ve just found out that we’ve had another great result – a landing in the FT.
