1st crowdsourced flight created by Calgary resident sells out,

bringing 156 tourists to Kelowna for May 20-23 long weekend!

Steven Hoedel created his own travel experience by choosing the destination (Kelowna),

date, time and airplane and then invited his friends, family and colleagues to join him.


“In the evolving world of sharing communities and travel, our new crowdsourcing concept (JumpStart) is working,” explains Roger Jewett CEO, Jump On Flyaways. “Steven Hoedel has demonstrated how easy it is for travellers to take control of their personal travel experience using our crowdsourcing platform.”  


“This is an awesome concept,” says JumpStart HeroSteven Hoedel who created and Sold Out (156 seats), for a Calgary to Kelowna JumpStartfor the May 20-23 long weekend.  “With the price being so low, it was easy to generate interest and have people ‘Back’ the flight.” We're excited to meet up with friends in Kelowna and now we can afford to fly, rather than take the long drive."
