New Delhi, Aug 31 (IANS) If you ever dreamt of proposing to your beloved on an airplane or having a party during a chopper ride across town, automobile startup Droom, in partnership with JetSetGo, is taking strides in making that possible.
Droom, an online marketplace to buy and sell new and used automobiles, will now foray into the aerial vehicle segment and will give its users a chance to buy or sell aerial vehicles such as private planes and choppers from its online portal.
Additionally, Droom is also foraying into the fun rides and experiences category for rental and chartering of private planes and choppers.
“At Droom, we have always endeavoured to provide our consumers with the widest selection and choicest of offerings in the automobile segment. We endeavour to offer a truly holistic and trustworthy experience to our buyers as well as sellers,” Sandeep Aggarwal, founder and CEO, Droom, said in a statement.
“By partnering with JetSetGo and adding this new category into our list of product offerings, we are poised to leverage the growing spending power of the Indian consumers to provide them with need-based private aviation solutions,” Aggarwal said.
The collaboration is likely to “revolutionise the transportation space”, according to Kanika Tekriwal, co-founder and CEO, JetSetGo.
Droom is looking to further expand its operations to add 20 automobile and 12 service categories hosting over 50,000 sellers and 200,000 listings in the next 18 to 24 months.
Droom’s latest round of funding, led by Lightbox, will be used to expand categories as well as geographies.
