Hi, I'm Adam Blumenkranz. Welcome to my profile!
Adam Blumenkranz's Bio:
My objective is to be happy, be mindful of my moments, focus on gratitude, and to try to do my best always and live with no regrets... #flypeacefully #JetPurple #Airlines, Adam Blumenkranz
JetPurple was founded by Adam Blumenkranz and launched commercial air service on June 24, 2012 in partnership with Public Charters. JetPurple is Private jet travel for the Public
In 2012 Adam was appointed the Chief Marketing Officer of, yet quickly partnered with aviation veteren Jim Gallagher’s Public Charters and Aviation Technologies companies to join forces to launch together their first ever scheduled public charter air route, JetPurple.
In partnership with Blacker Airport in Manistee, Michigan, the route is a US DOT EAS Award Winner and is subsidized by the US DOT’s essential air service program for two years. As well the CDA, Chicago Department of Aviation, which owns Midway International Airport, granted many concessions to JetPurple/Public Charters in launching the route. Adam gained invaluable experience as well as a certain credibility in the airline industry, which enabled him to spend the last year and a half meeting with airport executives and other industry gatekeepers, to learn, dissect, and reinvent an evolved airline business model to disrupt the currently congested bottleneck in commercial scheduled passenger air travel.
Adam has been a featured speaker at finance industry conferences on music and film finance in New York City, Beverly Hills and London. He has also spoken on entrepreneurship at major universities and has been awarded several municipal accolades and a scholarship for community service.
Adam is a graduate of the University of Michigan, and earned his M.B.A. in finance and global marketing from the University of Michigan, School of Business Administration, while running his first business ventures.
