The journey of FLYGA
We started this journey back in 2017 when we first had the spark of an idea that could improve the airplane travel experience by solving a global travel problem, a problem you personally experience each time you fly.
After more than 6 years of ups and downs across battling launch delays due to a global pandemic, completing a crowdfunding campaign, building our e-commerce, establishing a growing footprint in the promotional product industry, launching on Amazon, fighting Chinese knockoffs and counterfeit products selling on our Amazon store, rebranding, working through the patent process, and hearing countless "no's" as we entered into the market. We have learned first-hand how challenging, and yet rewarding creating something completely new can be.
For lack of a better word, the experience has been humbling. What may appear on the surface as a very simple product, something we assumed would be easy to launch, has been quite the opposite. By no means due to lack of product market fit or unique value proposition. Simply the process of creation and educating the consumer.
We heard once "complexity is easy, simplicity is hard." This could not be more true.
Today we are excited to share that clients continue to reach out to their promotional product distributors for "something new and innovative" and The Airplane Clip by FLYGA is at the tip of their tongue.
This growth, along with landing 2 of the top 10 busiest airports in the USA as clients has been inspiring as we to continue to work through today's challenges, and prepare for whatever tomorrow brings.
Thank you to our many amazing clients, travelers, and distributor partners. We truly appreciate each and every one of you and wish you safe travels. To all the hopeful inventors, entrepreneurs, or creators out there. Remember, only those who have been through the journey can truly relate to the emotional and psychological rollercoaster you're currently on. Find those who have, connect, and stay inspired. Happy to chat and share what we've learned.
