Outstanding convenience and affordability

This BlackBird thing is a game changer. Before I found this app and this company, I had come to see air travel as something equally annoying as driving. In traditional passenger aviation, you can never fly anywhere direct, and the baggage and security processes are a nightmare. With BlackBird, I fly where I want when I want FOR HOW MUCH I WANT!!! And the app couldn’t be easier. I feel like a rich person with my own private charter, except I often pay less than I would for a drive of the same length and definitely less than traditional air travel, plus the convenience is amazing. I live in the Bay Area and you know how bad driving is if you’re trying to get away for the weekend. Anyway, this company and this app have changed my life and I couldn’t say enough good things. Enjoy the ride people!

Amazing Flight Experience!!!

I took a flight from San Carlos to Palm Springs on a Saturday morning and it was the best decision I ever made. No lines, no hassle, no checking in, just a really pleasant experience and a luxurious one at that. It was an 8 seater plane and a very smooth ride with amazing views. The pilot made us feel safe and made us feel like true valued customers.

The app was easy to use and support checked in with me along the way. I felt really taken care of. I think they upgraded the app because it looks absolutely beautiful as well.

This was a once in a life time experience I highly suggest. The price point was just right and worth every penny. I can’t wait for my next blackbird flight :)

Amazing app and even better service!

Blackbird is the most amazing way to travel. Still can’t believe this service exists. The app is so easy to use and customer service is on it no matter the question. On the day of travel, you arrive at a private airport, literally walk right onto the plane, no waiting, no lines and pretty good coffee most days ;). Have been flying from Bay Area to LA frequently and blackbird is saving me hours of time every week. Price is low and routes in California are plentiful. Looking forward to more routes opening up nationwide. Feels like aviation is finally joining the 21st century. Thank you Blackbird.
