As we close the books for 2023 and get ready for a new, exciting year ahead, we’re bringing a lot of learnings and insights into the needs, challenges, and opportunities of our members. Let’s look at some of the essential updates made during the year.
We’re thankful and proud that so many of our members have dedicated time and effort to partner with us in our product development during 2023. Getting this input is essential to build solutions that create success for operators and brokers worldwide.
This collaboration has resulted in a tonne of useful features and solutions on our platforms. Let’s look back at some of the key updates we made this year that create new efficiencies for operators’ and brokers’ different teams.
We’ve continued building on smoother payment workflows, particularly for users on finance teams. The ability to automatically match funds with trips in Avinode has been highly requested and now creates a seamless connection between incoming transactions and open payment requests. Keeping books up to date is easier with our QuickBooks Online integration!
Charter sales teams have more ways to create a five-star customer experience and reduce the steps in their sales workflows with the ability to offer the customer multiple payment options in one payment request, allowing their clients to select how they prefer to pay for the trip.
Working on the go in Avinode’s iOS app is easier than ever! When sourcing aircraft, you can easily toggle between arrival or departure and UTC or local time. You can rerun a search, a real time-saver when you need more options. In Trips Selling, we added an action indicator to highlight the row needing your attention, and the notifications are updated with reminders.
Operators and their dispatch teams have also seen several updates that make trip scheduling smoother. The Avinode schedule page got a make-over to improve usability. We introduced important integrations to other flight operations software used by US operators such as ForeFlight and Traxxall, making it easier to stay on top of scheduling issues.
For pilots and crew using the Schedaero iOS crew app, a major update and improvement has been the possibility of flight logging in the air without an internet connection. It’s also easier to keep track of flight changes in the crew app notifications center, where all trip updates can be easily reviewed in one place.
We hope you and your colleagues can find some quiet time during the end of the year to try out these time-saving updates and start the new year in a strong position!

To help our members predict the trends that will shape the year to come, we’re keen to learn from the past. Our network of nearly 2000 operators and brokers globally is maybe the most extensive source of behavioral data available in air charter. Harry Clarke continues the tradition of summing up the yearly trends we see in Avinode.
