Business aviation trip support services company Click Aviation Network has acquired CharterPad, an online platform for air charter professionals, for an undisclosed amount, the companies announced yesterday. Founded in 2011, U.S.-based CharterPad has a live database of 20,000 aircraft available worldwide for charter or cargo, offering digital solutions to charter brokers and operators through a single platform.
Click developed a similar platform, Click Omega, in 2016 that takes this concept one step forward with the addition of its networking concept, which it now plans to integrate into CharterPad. Click Aviation’s platform allows users to access a network of aviation professionals and use their combined expertise for flight planning, ground handling, aircraft charter, catering, and other aviation-related activities at reduced costs, the company said.
According to Click Aviation, the acquisition further expands its ability to serve the North American market while enhancing CharterPad’s existing capabilities and potential for growth in the coming years. “CharterPad’s current customers will see improvements in the existing system that incorporate a new layer of artificial intelligence software for enhanced efficiency,” it noted.
“We are excited about joining forces with Click Aviation and to accomplish our shared vision of connecting the private aviation industry through intelligent technology,” said CharterPad president Armando Antonini. ”Click’s expertise in creating operational efficiency will enhance our service offering for our members buying and selling aircraft charter.”
