Travel is gaining steam this year after quarantining for the better part of 2020 leaving numerous travelers stranded with their vacation plans up in smoke. But now with restrictions lifting and the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in full operation, traveling is becoming a thing again.
Black-owned company, FLY LYFE, has seized on this opportunity to reintroduce travel-hungry customers with options as it is described as the ‘World’s #1 Travel Networking App” coming this May, Black Enterprise reported. The company is described as being for jet-setters looking to network while “getting the best deals on private jets, villas, rental cars, exclusive events, and more.”
