We’ve had a busy month at Avinode HQ since launching PayNode, the world’s first payment solution specially created for air charter. We’re delighted so many merchants have signed up and are starting to make their payments fly through our system. PayNode is truly proving itself to be the industry’s new way to pay.

Here’s what one of our very first users has to say:

“We were thrilled to be among the 1st companies to use PayNode as the industry has been crying out for a system like this. It was no surprise that it comes from the Avinode Group as we know the company is always offering solutions that solve the challenges the whole industry faces. We can already see how PayNode is improving our workflow and how we handle payments across our company. This couldn’t have come sooner.”

Giles Vickers Jones, Chairman, Shy Aviation

And finally… a competition of unrivaled skill and popularity

To celebrate our launch in Orlando we held a #Makingpaymentsfly paper plane competition with two winners. The 1st winner, Brazil’s Cassio Polli, Aerie, flew his plane 91 feet and was announced during NBAA. The next winner was challenged to get the most ‘likes’ on Instagram by December 1st, 2016. We had a fiercely competitive race to the final few hours and are very pleased to announce we have two joint 2nd prize winners: Puerto Rico’s Edgardo M. Mercado Pérez who totaled 670 ‘likes’ and Sweden’s Julia Brink, BlueLink Jets, who totaled 550 ‘likes’. All three will be receiving a hoverboard to fly about on!

That’s all for now.
