The brand was created in 1998, aboard an Air France flight somewhere between New York and Paris by design industry insiders, John Sencion and Brad John. Two seasoned travelers who had spent too much time preparing for takeoff over the years, the co-founders envisioned a travel retail solution as streamlined as flight itself.
Six months later, this mid-air brainstorm turned into every jetsetter’s dream: a one-stop-travel-shop for everything from luggage, to aerotherapy solutions, and cutting edge tech to suit the frequent flyer’s every need.
Flight 001’s brick and mortar and online stores feature a meticulously curated selection of multi-brand travel products united by ergonomic design and innovation. Flight 001’s own in-house design studio has developed a variety of luggage and travel accessories that have revolutionized the travel product space. The brand’s signature Spacepak Compression Packing System, which maximizes luggage capacity by compressing the volume of packed items by 30%, is part of a five piece system that has transformed the way smart travelers pack.
“With Spacepak compression packing, all you have to do is fold your clothes, place them in the Spacepak, zip it closed, and push excess air out through one way vents,” said Flight 001 co-founder, John Sencion. “And with the pouch’s interior membrane, dirty laundry stays separate from clean clothes, eliminating the need for plastic laundry bags. The product is a packing, and unpacking, game-changer.”
The 4-in-1 Universal Travel Adapter is another award-winning Flight 001 innovation. Comprised of a set of color-coded plugs that allow travelers to easily adapt in more than 150 countries, it is the brand’s first product to utilize the JA/C READY System, a user-friendly, color-coded world adapter system that makes finding the right plug for your trip as simple as matching the colors on a map.
