Invoicing and payment app Willa announced the launch of their own “airline:” Willa Air, which will cater to a small group of influencers flying to major events in 2022.
“Airline” Features Private Aircraft and Popup Lounges for Influencers
The app – catering towards social creators invoicing brands for their collaborations and posts – isn’t launching an airline with an air operator certificate. Instead, the company is offering a giveaway for users who bill their brand partners using the app.
According to the company’s site, a group of “12 top creators” will be treated to a luxury flight from Van Nuys Airport (VNY) in Los Angeles to the Coachella Valley to attend the world-famous eponymous music festival. The group of flyers will meet at the pop-up lounge, featuring a champagne breakfast, before taking a black car to the airport and departing for the short flight inland.
After the music festival is over, the influencers will be shuttled back by air to Van Nuys, where they will be once again welcomed at the lounge for “IV drips, massages, healthy brunch, and a detox juice bar.” The company is accepting applications from influencers using their platform through April 8, 2022.
Although the giveaway on “Willa Air” involves transportation, the flyers must get their own tickets and accommodations for the music festival. The group will be selected based on the number of invoices submitted through the app.
While the pop-up “airline” is “launching” on April 15, 2022, the trip to Coachella isn’t the only flight they will be operating this year. The company’s page says they will also offer creators the opportunity to get a private flight to New York Fashion Week and other events coming soon.
Airlines Resume Focus on First Class Flyers
With events and travel coming back, the real airlines are once again turning their focus to the premium cabin. In 2021, both Delta Air Lines and JetBlue announced improvements to their First and Business Class products, while American Airlines brought meals back to forward cabin flyers in February 2022.
