Flapper is a marketplace for private general aviation seat sales. The company has already established relevant partnerships with some of the main air taxi companies. As every two-sided business model, Flapper aims to optimize the market and to make private general aviation an attractive option, while increasing the usage of air taxi companies’ fleets. Flapper was founded by executives from a fintech company – Qiwi – and by Paul Malicki, former CMO of Easy Taxi. Together, the co-founders saw a great opportunity in the niche for private travel to the upper middle class.
