Travel is our DNA

We developed Claire because we have a strong vision for the future of travel management. The next evolutionary step is a solution that is travel savvy, proactive and learns from data: a software that acts just like a human addition to the team—but without incurring a personal cost.

At 30SecondsToFly we spearhead the development of an artificially intelligent
corporate travel manager.

Meet the Founders

Felicia Schneiderhan

Felicia has a background in Public Management and Economics. During her Master's degree she invented a new hair styling tool and founded her first company for which she built a supply chain from China to Lithuania. Felicia also has a formal education as a journalist which she pursued alongside her Bachelor degree. In 2014 Felicia met Riccardo during their Fulbright year at NYU and in 2015 they set out to revolutionize corporate travel with 30SecondsToFly and their technology Claire.

Riccardo Vittoria

Riccardo is the engineering and machine learning mind who started Claire. After he wrote his Master thesis, awarded magna cum laude, in mathematical optimization applied to airport operations, he went on to research in machine learning in Rome and Singapore. Prior to 30SecondsToFly Riccardo founded 2 companies, PeekBite in New York and MatrimoniFotoRoma in Rome. Riccardo has always been a geek when it comes to airlines and aircrafts, which is the reason why he ultimately started 30SecondsToFly with Felicia.

Meet the team

At 30SecondsToFly we encourage travel and diversity because we believe in what it reinforces in us: an insatiable hunger to reach new lands, respect for what we do not know and strong personal relationships based on mutual appreciation for each other’s courage and resilience to conquer our challenges.
