Membership Air Travel Startup, Rise, Announces Proprietary Membership Air Travel Information System

Rise Technology, LLC today announced availability of its Membership Air Travel Information System for use by Rise members. The proprietary application allows Rise members to log in, create a profile, and book flights in less than a minute.

“Membership air travel is rapidly growing in popularity,” states a public release from Rise. “For the first time, frequent travelers can skirt the long lines and over-crowded flights for a private air travel experience.”

Rise was founded to serve the needs of frequent air travelers who appreciate the private air travel experience without the high costs of private plane ownership. We were excited to have Nick Kennedy, CEO of Rise, present at our Holiday Dallas New Tech event in December last year. Flights are expected to go live in mid-February.

“We are very excited about our Membership Air Travel Information System,” says Kennedy. “We have always seen ourselves as a technology company and our system enables us to fix several fundamental problems for frequent travelers by removing the frictions associated with air travel today.”

The application keeps track of the member’s profile and membership information, flight information and updates, along with any referral program invitations and features that make travel more convenient. The membership system also has the functionality for companies to register employees as Rise members.

The Rise Membership Air Travel Information System houses many operational pieces for Rise, as well, “including real-time information on planes, pilots, airports, flights, routes, manifests, members, promotions, and notifications that can be sent directly to members via email or text notifying members of flight updates,” states the release. The Rise platform will be also be commercially available for other membership air travel companies in the near future.
