We are excited to announce the launch of Willa Air, the first airline designed exclusively for creators. That’s right, we started an airline that will service creators traveling nationwide for events like music festivals and fashion week.
What is Willa Air?
Willa Air will offer content creators and influencers a fast, efficient and tailored travel option for major events throughout the year. The airline’s first destination will be Coachella Valley, CA, where hundreds of thousands of individuals and nearly 6,000 influencers are expected to visit this year.
Willa Air will provide door-to-door service from Los Angeles to Indio, California, for a weekend of fun. Passengers will receive additional services at the departure lounge (located in The Bank, Willa’s creator space in Venice Beach) including pre-party amenities such as a champagne breakfast and black car transportation, and post-event recovery including IV Drips and massages to decompress.

Why would Willa, a fintech platform dedicated to helping freelancers, influencers, and content creators get paid instantly with no hassle, launch an airline?
“We launched Willa Air to provide superfast and convenient travel for the content creators who are jetting off to events across the U.S. Naturally, we are launching during Coachella, one of the biggest influencer events of the year,” said Aron Levin our co-Founder and CMO. “Willa was founded with the mission of helping creators, and quick, seamless travel is one of the many ways we are supporting our audience.”
We know that for creators, your time is just as valuable as your money, and our mission at Willa has always been to make it possible for content creators and freelancers to live their best lives by getting paid instantly–no waiting for net 30/60/90 or brands who don’t pay. Making creators’ lives better is just who we are, and we’re thrilled that Willa Air is now a part of that mission.
