Why we love it
Plenty of travel apps come and go without any real traction, but Skyhour has caught the attention of a major airline. JetBlue Technology Ventures was so impressed with what Skyhour is hoping to do that it's made a sizable financial investment in the idea. JetBlue also helps bring Skyhour more expertise in hospitality, travel, and the airline ecosystem. “We are always on the lookout for innovative concepts and ideas that have the potential to transform aspects of how we travel” JetBlue Technology Ventures President Bonny Simi. “We can see this completely changing the travel-gifting experience.” When someone sends you Skyhours, redeeming them is simple. You can type in the code, or you can scan the QR code that comes with them. It's all done in-app, and you get to watch your Skyhours accumulate as they're counted off one at a time.
