Founded in 2018, after Woodruff witnessed firsthand the struggles of traveling alone with her young daughter, Travelsist now continues to change the game. Fast forward to now, and the company aims to solve the human capital shortages that both airports and airlines have been experiencing thanks to the pandemic.
Through the Travelsist platform, travelers can request concierge services for a host of accommodations that range from wheelchair services to assistance navigating unfamiliar airports and much more!
“Every single flight that takes off today, domestic or international, will carry passengers who need extra assistance. 18% of air travelers have disabilities that fall under ADA,” said Woodruff in a statement. “The airlines and airports we speak to everyday tell us they are understaffed, and unable to meet traveler needs. In 2022, as travel rebounds, this shortfall will grow, and Travelsist will be here to satisfy all of this new and existing demand.”
