RocketRoute (Booth 1257) announced at EBACE that Salzburg, Austria-based charter, management and sales firm Private Airlines is its first Gulfstream customer for the RocketRoute flight-planning app. Private Airlines’s fleet includes the Gulfstream G150, G280 and G650, as well as Boeing and Airbus bizliners.

The web-based RocketRoute app for PCs and mobile devices allows Private Airlines crew and operations staff to log on from anywhere and prepare, dispatch and manage flights. According to the UK-based software developer, its app empowers and re-integrates crews into the fligh-planning process, resulting in “significant cost savings and increases in productivity.”

RocketRoute currently has more than 25,000 registered users, handling some 500,000 routings since the company was founded just three years ago. ­
