Gift Air Travel with the Skyhour App

Until now there’s been no easy way to gift someone a portion of a trip (unless, of course, buying an entire flight outright). With Skyhour—a website and app—everything has changed and the process is beyond simple. On the platform, users buy as many “skyhours” they want and select someone to gift. Skyhours are received by the recipient via e-mail, SMS or the app itself. Recipients then search for flights on Skyhour, which has partnered with 350 international and domestic airlines (basically all the ones people want). A “skyhour” retails for $60. This was ascertained after the cofounders analyzed 15 years of flight reservations and found that the cost per hour of time spent in the air actually amounts to $60. Read more at Condé Nast Traveler.
