If your travel style is more spontaneous than anything else, here’s an app that could be useful for you.

The Air Ticket Arena is a new mobile app that lets travelers place bids on unsold airline seats within two weeks of flying.

Here’s how it works: Last-minute fliers can select flight preferences like date and itinerary, and place bids based on how much they would like to pay for a seat.

Return flights can be booked up to 14 days after departing flights, with separate bids placed for each leg of the trip.

Between 24 and 48 hours before a flight, airlines will decide which seats are available and which bids to accept.

The startup company hopes to have agreements signed with ten to 15 airlines by the end of this year, with targeted airlines being ones located in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
