Dubai-based trip support specialist United Aviation Services (UAS, Booth 371) is here giving live demos of its new Trip Management System (TMS). TMS is “a web-based and mobile trip management application” that will give customers real-time access to UAS’s range of business aviation services. For example, customers will be able to track, in real time, the status of their flights and service requests. They will also have access to handling and fuel confirmations.
Instead of having to make separate phone calls or emails to separate teams for elements like permits, fuel or flight itineraries, customers can use TMS to receive the same level of information as UAS’s operations team. “It’s like having a full operations team right in your phone,” said UAS co-owner and executive president Mohammed Husary.
TMS will be available for free, online and as an app for iPhones, Android and BlackBerry smartphones. Beta testing was completed at the end of last year but release to customers has been postponed to the third quarter of 2013.
UAS has a network of partners, vendors and representatives across the globe. It has offices in Mali, Ethiopia and Kyrgyzstan to manage stations in those regions. It has now opened an office in the U.S. and plans to seek development and growth opportunities elsewhere.
