New App Offers Flights with Subscription Billing

Model

A growing number of businesses are discovering the benefits of monetizing their services

using subscription billing. However, the vast majority of these brands offer software as a

service, apps or curated retail boxes. Now, other types of businesses are experimenting

with subscription billing as well, even airlines.

Flying subscription style

OneGo, a new startup, will allow users to fly across the country based on a subscription

fee. Not surprisingly, the service doesn't come cheap, and it's likely aimed more at

business travelers than the average leisure flyer. The service divides the U.S. into three

regions, West, Central and East. Users can subscribe to flights within a specific region or

nationwide. Each selection has a unique price associated with it. A Nationwide

subscription costs close to $3,000 per month, while the Eastern region is the second-

most expensive, at $2,300 per month. West and Central cost $1,500 and $1,950 per

month, respectively. All of this comes after an initial setup fee of $495. To cover baggage

fees and seat upgrades, OneGo asks for an additional $750 per month. According to

Bloomberg Business, OneGo hopes to use subscriptions to make the business of paying

for flights more predictable, which could mean greater savings for travelers.

"OneGo helps to level the playing field by making air travel costs more predictable for

even the most frequent travelers," according to an FAQ on the app's website. "The

consolidated buying power of OneGo's customers allow us to obtain better pricing that

we can then pass on to those travelers.“

So far, users have access to 76 U.S. airports and seven top airlines, including American

Airlines, JetBlue and Southwest.

Booking flights

Another benefit of the service is simplified booking. Currently, subscribers can have up to

four active bookings at once, and travelers are required to book these flights a week in

advance. After paying upfront, travelers wouldn't have to worry about choosing indirect

flights or sorting through other options just to find the best price.

According to The Next Web, the app hopes to allow up to eight bookings in the future

and will also allow users to make last-minute travel arrangements. The ability to schedule

extremely last-minute travel would make the service more valuable. Businesses are

often in the position where they schedule meetings for the next day and often take a

financial blow getting employees on a flight to make it in time. In this case, paying a

subscription would be a good cost-saving measure for companies.

To earn money from the subscription billing approach, OneGo is hoping that most

months, users won't fly enough to cover the entire fee. This business model is a familiar

Users can sign up starting in February, but the iOs app won't be available until March.

Currently, there is no Android version, although the brand plans to release one in the

future.
