  3. Avinode Group shares their vision of a new booking experience for air charter.

    Comments Off on Avinode Group shares their vision of a new booking experience for air charter.

    Building strong customer relationships is central for selling air charter, and in this time and age relationships matter more than ever to excel as a broker and operator. The business aviation industry has been left behind when it comes to offering smooth online booking and payment solutions to help professionals in air charter.

    Recent data shows that online sales globally is projected to grow by 56% in the next three years (eMarketer, 2023). Avinode data confirm this trend, as we have seen a 400% growth in proportion of end client searches powered by Avinode’s web apps since 2018.

    Tobias Gunnesson, CPO, says, “During 2023 and onwards we will be launching new functionality across our software solutions that will make it easier for buyers of air charter and their clients to select, book and pay for a trip online. We’ve involved our members in a customer-centric approach to product development, where we have a handful of development partners actively involved in the process. It provides our customers unique insights and ensures that it matches the problems they are facing every day.”

    Avinode Group’s vision is for charter buyers to easily choose their preferred quote, payment method, sign the contract and pay for the trip – all in one place. Charter sellers are provided with one smooth workflow that reduces the back-and-forth communications involving email, phone and paper to book and confirm a charter flight. A cornerstone of the online booking workflow is our integrated payment solution Paynode, which gives buyers and sellers more ease and choice when doing business together.

    “Our vision is that charter operators and brokers will be able to allocate more of their time and energy to offer their customers that five-star experience from start to finish, which is what they do best. The book & pay workflow should be the least of their worries, including getting paid on time,” says Oliver King, CEO, Avinode Group.

  4. A new must-read white paper on payments for everyone in air charter just released.

    Comments Off on A new must-read white paper on payments for everyone in air charter just released.

    As a result of our efforts to simplify payments within the industry, we have gained valuable insights into the common business challenges that exist around payments today. The white paper covers a range of topics, including compliance, wire and card fraud, hidden fees, unclear costs, and ad hoc flights, providing a comprehensive overview of the business challenges facing business aviation.

    In addition, the white paper delves into some of the most interesting trends that are affecting charter payments, with digital payment solutions emerging as disruptors in the traditional payments sector.

    According to Brenton Melville, spokesperson for Avinode Group, “We also put together some ideas and thoughts for what to consider when planning charter booking and payment processes today. We hope to help brokers and operators to find good solutions to their payment challenges that are not only safe and secure but also lead to a more efficient and streamlined way of working.”

    Dealing with last-minute, high-value and international transactions adds to the complexity of air charter payments. Avinode data shows that 72% of charter inquiries to operators in Europe come from international companies, and as much as 31% of charter flights globally were requested within 72 hours of departure in 2022 and 2023.

    We believe the white paper is a must-read for anyone in the air charter industry and our goal is to provide valuable insights and actionable solutions to common payment challenges across the industry.

    With many moving parts and constant deadlines, stress and frustration levels in the business aviation industry can rise through the roof. Few know this better than Avinode Group, the company that’s known for ironing out the challenges that aviation professionals encounter daily. With the Frustration Booth, they want to use the collected frustration to create new and improved software solutions.

    We’ve spent the last 20 years building solutions that bring our clients’ data and processes together in one place. Our essential software makes sure that there’s less room for mistakes through the full workflow of getting aircraft in the air, from request to payment. We serve clients across many parts of the industry and we’re constantly learning about their different pain points so that we can help make their business flow easier“, says Saskia de Jong, Director of Customer Success at Avinode Group.

    Collecting the most frustrating moments at NBAA 2022

    The Frustration Booth will make its premiere at NBAA 2022 in Orlando on the 18th of October. The booth will have visitors react to situations they commonly encounter at work and everything from primal screams to silly faces are allowed. The participants are also encouraged to share their most frustrating moments – something Avinode Group knows there are many of in the industry.

    We want to tap into what new needs the industry meets. The world changes rapidly and in the post-pandemic world with new global challenges related to our environment and a stressed global economy we want to see how we can support the industry for the years to come“, says Samuel Winderö, Global Director of Marketing & Communication at Avinode Group

    Removing frustrating tasks since 2002

    The company’s ambition to make work life smoother by simplifying and removing frustrating tasks is not new.

Since then, they have become industry leaders in the field of business aviation software. This year they are celebrating 20 years of providing solutions for business aviation professionals.

    This is why we are collecting frustration – it helps us pinpoint where we should be going next. Not just when developing our own essential software, but how we can create sustainable impact across the industry together with our members”, Samuel continues.
