ARG/US and Avinode Launch Trip Service
Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARG/US) and Avinode have launched the TAAP (trip analysis availability and pricing) service, a combination of the ARG/US Cheq (charter evaluation and qualification) system and the Avinode Pax (pricing and availability) service. Customers can search for operators, check the operators’ ARG/US safety rating, get trip pricing and aircraft availability and perform a TripCheq, using a single Web interface. Combining the two services will provide a “time-saving resource for busy private aviation users,” the companies said. Avinode will be offering ARG/US Cheq subscribers free access to the new service through January 1. Avinode is an online charter marketplace that lists 2,100 aircraft with online quoting, availability reports, empty-leg postings and picture galleries.
