Lack of potential direct and low cost flight options from local airport and inconvenient alternatives made Marko think about platform that organises shared professional transportation to the alternative 1-3 hour drive away airports for the price of the bus and adapts departure times to desired times for passengers to catch the plane and not wait on the airport for too long. GoOpti was born and grew really fast. Now Marko is in charge of business strategy, organisation and product development.
