Well.. That went… Really quickly.

Adrian and I just wanted to give a quick shout out to everyone for such an amazing year! Sparrow Flights has only been live for 5 months and what an incredible journey.

In 2016 we managed to:

  • Launch Sparrow
  • Build business profiles
  • Implement the concierge
  • Rebrand to the little black sparrow you see above (Thanks Dave for your input!)
  • Implement international flights (via the concierge)
  • Showed off Sparrow at StartCon
  • Sparrow was a finalist in StartCon’s “Best Mobile App Startup” Category
  • Featured as one of “Australia’s top 10 startups to watch” in AFR’s Techinvest magazine
  • Met some incredible people along the way.
  • And we had a great time doing it!

There are some game changing features in the works, unfortunately I can’t mention them all here.

Some things to look forward to next year:

  • New design! I know what you’re thinking, how can we improve further on what we already have? You’ll see…
  • Multiple passengers
  • Booking for others
  • Simpler filters (Improving further on your suggestions Jamie!)
  • Some really cool partnerships
  • A referral scheme
  • And more…

We really couldn’t have done this without you, thank you for all your support over the past year & really hope to see you again in 2017!

Also a MASSIVE thankyou to Andrew, who has been helping out a few days a week – you’re unreal mate!

Wishing you all a safe and happy Christmas and New Year!

Happy New Year!
