Hoping to become the next big thing in England’s airports, Odyssey Airline Limited has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube. The “Odyssey” is a new business class airline venture that is ready to be the first and only airline that operates non-stop services from London City Airport.
Founded by Adam Scott, Odyssey is ready to provide stress-free, premium class travel from the heart of London to any destinations in North America, Middle East and Europe. Although its main market will be the typical business traveller, the airline will also provide a broad appeal to any traveller, from business to leisure, who is looking for a very different experience.
Not only will it be the first airline with non-stop services from London City Airport that will reduce traveling time, Odyssey will have the latest aircraft technology with innovative seat configuration. It will focus on key high-traffic destinations.
During an interview with City A.M. radio, Mr. Scott stated, “What’s really attractive about this business proposition is we have taken the optimal aircraft in an optimal configuration for these routes. It’s almost the closest replacement to Concorde, a direct, non-stop transatlantic flight.”
Noting Odyssey’s Bombardier CService, which was designed specifically for London and difficult airports, Mr. Scott explained, “In my own experiences of traveling, there’s nothing more frustrating than all the aggravation of going through big hubs, so I’m trying to find a solution to those issues.”
Odyssey is currently seeking to raise £1 million, which, along with funding from other investors, will be the minimum amount of capital, for the aircraft purchase contract and to fund the operational costs. So far, the campaign has raised a total of £260,000 from 40 investors with the largest investment to date at £60,000.
