The New Pet Airways, Inc.
HUMAN AIRLINES ARE TERRIBLE FOR PETS. PET AIRWAYS IS THE SAFE ALTERNATIVE. Our “pawsengers” fly in the main cabin of our aircraft, continuously monitored by our On-Board Pet Attendant. We make sure our pawsengers are safe, comfortable and have lots of fresh air and that the temperature is just right. We are a pet-only airline run by pet people where it’s all about providing a quality travel experience for pets.
The founder of The New Pet Airways previously ran a similar business "Old Pet Airways", which generated $2.75M in its last year of operations, flying over 9,000 pets to 9 cities in the U.S.
Old Pet Airways was getting over 10,000 requests per month to cities not serviced.
We demonstrated that the demand exists, that the business model works and that pricing is such that the service can be profitable.
Recent posting of a "coming back" post on Facebook was viewed by over 145,000 people. A 58,000 person "coming back" email campaign generated a 25% open rate.
Old Pet Airways' initial launch was reported on by over 5,000 TV, Internet, Newspapers and Radio shows throughout the world.
According to PR Newswire, the Old Pet
Airways initial launch announcement was the most successful press release regarding the launch of a company ever experienced by them.
Jay Leno played the the Old Pet Airways commercial in his monologue as a basis for a joke about pets. Value of commercial topped $5M according to knowledgeable sources.
The Learning Curve has been paid for by the Old Pet Airways, which ceased operations after not being able to raise the final amount of funding we needed in 2009. All the knowledge is ready to be infused into The New Pet Airways, providing a quick-start towards profitability, and reduction of risk associated with a start-up.
We intend to fly to the largest 20 cities in the U.S. This means that we will be within a 2 hour drive to 90% of all pets in the U.S.
Millions of pets fly each year. Several more millions would fly if Pet Parents had a safe non-cargo alternative.
We hope to capture a market share of 100,000 to 500,000 pets.
