Jet: The Business Travelers Network – Ready for Boarding

January 22, 2013

Frequent business travelers love dispensing their wisdom, and now exclusively through LinkedIn’s partnership with Capital One, they’ll have a hub on LinkedIn where they can do just that and more! I’m excited to announce the launch of Jet: The Business Travelers Network, powered by Capital One – a premier online destination where the millions of business travelers on LinkedIn can learn from their peers and share tips with a community that equally shares their passion.

Jet features original curated content through a Special Edition of LinkedIn Today that will be tailored towards the business traveler’s interests and needs. In addition to relevant news and articles, Jet will also feature Q&As, spotlight profiles with industry experts, and post weekly polls as conversation starters.  The content will be curated, managed and monitored by a dedicated editorial staff working on the group.

Since we started testing the group last month, we’ve gotten enthusiastic feedback on such topics as improving your odds for airline upgrades, and joined lively discussions about the most stressful airports in America.

Capital One is just as excited as we are to provide rich, valuable content, while helping business travelers to be better informed, more efficient and ultimately, more productive. Through a group like Jet, we continue our mission to give professionals the resources they need to be more successful in their careers and our partnership with Capital One is further reinforcement of that mission.
