If you haven’t heard of JetSetGo, chances are, like us, you’re snoozing through an Economy seat. While private-jetting to a meeting in Mumbai might not be what we do, the story behind JetSetGo and the founder’s grit is truly awesome. Introducing you to our #FitToFight homegirl, Kanika.
Kanika’s lifelong passion for aviation began after she saw a helicopter at the age of 4 years. Steadfast in her belief that she wanted to change the world and put our country on the map, she started JetSetGo, the country’s largest private jet fleet.
When she turned 22 years old, she was diagnosed with cancer. Undaunted, she faced her disease with the conviction that she would survive, conquer and continue to live her life fearlessly. Despite the relentless nature of this illness, she persevered to turn her vision into reality.
Today she values the nature of her business, the commitment and capabilities of her team, the genuine appreciation from her customers and the common vision they all share of taking JetSetGo to newer heights. Together they are coming up with innovative solutions, better experiences and improving lives while revolutionizing the aviation industry and the way we travel.
Apart from successfully donning the cap of an entrepreneur, which she compares to ‘running a country’, and rightfully so – she also enjoys painting, traveling and is a marathon runner. Being an entrepreneur, she admits work-life balance is tough to achieve everyday, but believes in prioritising according to one’s own personal schedule and comfort. Her advice? Believe in yourself and never give up, if you put in the effort to achieve your dreams, the entire universe will conspire to make it happen with you.
