It’s not only two-wheelers and passenger vehicles that one can but or rent any more. Now one can even purchase or rent a plane or a helicopter through online portals. Droom, India’s first marketplace for automobiles is all set to enter the aerial vehicles category in partnership with India’s first marketplace for private jets JetSetGo.
Droom and JetSetGo will give its users a chance to buy or sell aerial vehicles such as private planes and choppers from its online portal. Additionally, Droom is also foraying into what it calls the “fun rides & experiences” category while chartering private planes and choppers.
At Droom, one can buy and sell everything on wheels, right from bicycles to planes. Additionally, Droom is launching the fun rides & experiences category where a party in the sky, a joyride with family, or a corporate getaway can be booked across droom platforms.
Sandeep Aggarwal, founder & CEO, Droom, said, “By partnering with JetSetGo and adding this new category into our list of product offerings, we are poised to leverage the growing spending power of the Indian consumers to provide them with need-based private aviation solutions.”
Kanika Tekriwal, co-founder and CEO, JetSetGo, said, “Droom with its disruptive marketplace approach, is one of the most influential players in the Indian automobile market. Droom caters to every segment of society, be it a scooter or a skoda or a Lamborgini. I am confident that the two partners together will revolutionise the transportation space.”
