Peak season is just starting in the US, and like everyone else, we are hoping that it will be a busy one. The early signs are positive, with Avinode reporting strong momentum for 2017 which has been building over the fall.
Peak season is just starting in the US, and like everyone else, we are hoping that it will be a busy one. The early signs are positive, with Avinode reporting strong momentum for 2017 which has been building over the fall. Conversely, European traffic has slowed in the fall and winter months. Altogether in 2017, many charter operators are reporting record year-over-year growth, which has more recently started to pick up in the US.
In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, Avinode has reached almost 80% growth in requests sent in the US versus the same period in 2016. Requests from US buyers to sellers has grown more than 100% this year, an impressive feat indeed. Business has been strong, which is certainly something to be thankful for.
In this week of giving thanks, we wanted to say how grateful we are for you, the members that make Avinode everything it is. Thank you for your time and dedication – together we are building a better industry, one trip at a time!
From the Avinode team, Happy Holidays.
