Wingz Lifts Off in Miami, Competing With Uber and Lyft

A new ride-hailing app

A new app called Wingz has joined Uber and Lyft in requesting a ride-hailing license from Miami-Dade County, according to the Miami Herald.

On its website, Wingz touts its slogan as "Pre-booked, private airport rides. No surge. No stress." The boast draws a contrast with Uber and Lyft, which require real-time booking and vary fees minute by minute, based on demand. It lists no East Coast markets — only airports in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas and Washington State.

The company is different than the others in that its customers book rides in advance and only to and from the airport (for a fixed price). Wingz currently operates in 10 U.S. cities.

The app does not appear to be live yet.
