An AI-powered virtual assistant.

30SecondsToFly provides small-to-medium sized businesses with an affordable travel management solution through its product Claire, an artificial intelligence-powered assistant. Claire navigates the challenges of corporate travel through automation and data-driven analysis, all the while presenting a nearly-human and friendly experience to her customers. Self-professed “efficiency geeks” Felicia Schneiderhan and Riccardo Vittoria founded 30SecondsToFly in 2015. The company was being incubated at JetBlue Ventures’ Silicon Valley headquarters and was acquired by Amex GBT in 2020.

“30SecondsToFly uses artificial intelligence and a user-friendly experience to provide cost efficient travel services to small- to medium-sized businesses and their employees.”

At the same time, they provided us with valuable industry and technology insights. Working with them was an amazing experience.”
