In today’s world, consumers incorporate a wide range of digital tools and platforms into their purchasing decisions and buying habits. But, when it comes to gifting air travel, there is no seamless, tech-driven, way to purchase flights. Enter SkyHour: an early-stage start-up that aims to completely change the way we gift travel. The process is simple: select the number of skyhours you want to buy, and the recipient will have complete freedom to book their flight on one of 350 international and domestic airlines directly through the Skyhour app or website. Founded in 2016 by Fernando Camara (CEO) and David Nogueira (CTO), Skyhour has a vision to create the ultimate air travel currency that powers travel across platforms and industries.
