Private aviation marketplace Flyjets has launched an upgraded version of its mobile application with new automated scheduling, FlyCalendar, and FlyGreen features. The charter booking engine automates charter availability and empty-leg charter flights on a point-to-point basis.
Using automation and technology-enabled networks, the system allows users to find affordable charter rates and allows them to take advantage of empty-leg discounts. Aircraft providers upload aircraft and availability information on the systems and from that, users can find and book aircraft and routes in real-time. Flyjets also provides booking support and travel-planning services as an International Air Transport Association-registered travel agency.
The company’s FlyGreen system has been automated with its FlyRewards feature, so when users purchase carbon offsets the rewards received will appear in their mobile dashboards. FlyCalendar operates as a volume aggregator for what Flyjets refers to as in-network empty-leg matchups and group-booking opportunities. “Upon successful match-up, each flyer party typically saves 30 to 50 percent per charter, given the routing efficiencies simultaneously created for aircraft providers,” said Flyjets founder and CEO Jessica Fisher.
