Online charter portal Avinode is unveiling its new aircraft charter search engine at this week’s NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers conference in San Antonio. The company says its new 2.0 system will make it easier for charter brokers and operators to put together the most cost-efficient routes by allowing them to search more effectively for real-time aircraft availability and pricing. It can show complex sets of charter flight options, even for operators with multiple bases or a floating fleet. One improvement in the new version of Avinode is that it quickly identifies the best aircraft options for a flight from a variety of airports in one region, such as New York, to suitable airports in another region, such as Los Angeles. The more powerful search engine processes aircraft availability data to reveal more diverse flight options. By optimizing operators’ availability and pricing information, the new Avinode system can offer the most cost- and time-efficient trip routing. The full launch for Avinode 2.0 is set for the end of next month.
