PJET Announces Technology Alternative To $16 Billion In Student Housing Investment
Priority Aviation announced on Thursday that it was working on the development of an application that is going to function as an Airbnb of student housing properties. The company noted that it was looking to launch the application at some point towards to the end of this year.
It goes without saying that it was a significant announcement from the company and it remains to be seen if the market participants eventually come around to having the same outlook as Private Aviation with regards to the project.
