JetSmarter is his current project and it’s changing the way people travel. The company was launched in 2013. JetSmarter is an app you can download through Google Play or iTunes. It allows you to book private jet services as well as compare prices to get the most economical private jet airfares. Sergey Petrossov is working to take it a step further and give his clients the total luxury travel experience.
