A new airport car parking/rental model? Instead of paying to park at the airport, while you are away, let this company rent your car out to someone in your hometown.
I love this observation from the company’s CEO:
“How does it make sense that there’s one parking lot at the airport where there are thousands of cars sitting there and people are paying for them to sit there and do nothing, and there’s another parking lot with thousands of cars owned by Hertz?” 18-year-old FlightCar CEO Rujul Zaparde said.
Of course, it can’t be that simple. Bureaucrats are having conniptions about it because it hurts their rent-seeking model.
…not unlike NYC and other municipal governments (Amsterdam, if memory serves) trying to put the kibosh on AirBnB, or LA trying to shut down Lyft, Uber, and Sidecar.
Looks like the same thing. Peer to peer car rental, right?
