Swifties know all too well about the rumored reasons behind Taylor Swift’s most-popular release on “Red (Taylor’s Version), which dropped on Nov. 12. So, if you’re called Jake and you might be okay but you’re not fine at all, you’re in luck.

App in the Air, a travel app that’s essentially a personal travel assistant in your pocket, is giving five travelers named Jake the chance to get out of town with $300 credit towards a flight.

Those who share a name with the famous actor who has made the headlines over the last few weeks should email a copy of their ID to jake@appintheair.com to be in with a chance of winning.

Entries close on Dec. 13—happy birthday, Taylor!—and winners will be selected at random shortly after.

Inspired by George Clooney’s 2009 comedy-drama, “Up in the Air”, App in the Air is free to download and has helped more than six million users plan out their travel, from start to finish. Taking care of everything from choosing the right flights, which are filtered by important factors such as price, COVID-19 policies, and carbon emissions, to crowdsourcing information about things like security wait times and airport facilities, it is an innovative app designed to take the stress out of travel.

App in the air has received hundreds of five-star reviews from the Apple App Store, with many praising the accuracy of the information and the ability to sync all details into one.

“Such a great app,” said one person. “Big credit to the developers.

“You will never find a more accurate app,” wrote another. “It has saved me so SO much trouble.”

And another person noted that they “only rated it five stars because there is no ten”.

App in the Air has also recently announced its new Digital Health Passport, where users can upload COVID test results and vaccine cards digitally for more seamless travel experiences. Additionally, for every user that upload their proof of covid vaccination to the app, App in the Air will donate an additional vaccine to a vulnerable country thanks to a partnership with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance that helps vaccinate almost half the world’s children against infectious diseases.

“We want people to be able to freely and safely travel and recognize that vaccine requirements slow that down,” says Bayram Annakov, CEO and Founder of App in the Air, in a press release. Our first step is to acknowledge the inequalities throughout the globe surrounding access to COVID-19 vaccines, and act on it now to do our part to help not only our travelers but the communities they fly to.”
