CharterX Adds Russian to Its Database

 - November 29, 2006, 4:44 AM

CharterX has added Russian to the available languages in its online “trip-builder” executive charter capacity database that already offers English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. “Russian-speaking travelers represent a growing customer base,” according to CharterX president James Betlyon.

The company’s air-charter quoting program provides price estimates in more than 140 currencies. To match required and available capacity, brokers and operators use the firm’s “XQuote” wholesale and retail service, which can direct potential customers’ requirements to suppliers and also saves data about them for subsequent exploitation.

CharterX claims to process some 65,000 trip searches a month across some 15,000 available aircraft that offer an average 1,700 empty legs daily.
