Founded by Claire Soares, Up in the Air Life is a black-owned travel company offering working professionals of color a luxe and lavish vacation. The concept for Up in the Air Life came to Claire after she first noticed a gap in the travel market for working professionals of color. At the same time, the travel company aims to build a community of black travelers that can easily engage with one another whether on vacation or at home.
For Up in the Air Life, the focus has always been on the finer things in life. The curated experiences are meant to showcase luxury in a way that creates epic experiences. All of the details of the trip are handled by UITAL; from the planning, booking, and scheduling, allowing travelers to sit back and enjoy the experience.
