GlobeAir, the leading European private jet
operator with the largest fleet of Citation Mustang jets, announces a
ground-breaking first AUTOMATIC booking via the Returnjet Platform, thanks to
the integration of its revolutionary API (Application Programming Interface)
developed by BoldIQ.
The API is driven by the latest web-based
software technologies and interfaces with Returnjet’s online platform to deliver
instant nett pricing to brokers, including integrated aircraft performance and
availability check, together with an end-to-end booking process.
Within minutes of going live GlobeAir
announced that their first automated booking had been successfully received. GlobeAir regularly takes booking via the Returnjet platform but this is the first using this revolutionary technology.
This B2B collaboration follows on from
PrivateFly who integrated with GlobeAir
through an API with Bold IQ's software in July 2014, providing real-time pricing
via its customer-facing platform.
CEO of GlobeAir, explains: “Previously, the private jet industry relied on
various human interaction at some stage of the quoting and booking process and
now this new functionality represents a significant step change in technology,
providing in real time a flight enquiry and a confirmed price.
We are very
excited to work together with Returnjet to provide the cutting-edge technology
in the business jet industry. I have no doubt that the future of our industry
will be in the online booking arena”.
President & CEO of BoldIQ addds: “Historically a lot of time, effort, and money
has been invested in the aircraft we all fly. We believe that the next evolution
of this industry will be ‘off board’ i.e. the significantly better and more
efficient use of the existing and future fleets of aircraft, no matter what
on-board technology they may or may not possess. What if you could fly more
revenue flights with the same number of aircraft and crew? Less aircraft and
crew? What if you didn’t need to buy more aircraft or hire more crew to grow
"Instead of trying
to sell your reposition legs, why not eliminate
them? When tackling these issues, we are now
discussing bottom line efficiency in a whole
different - much larger - scale. This is why we
continue to focus on fleet level and network level
"Returnjet is the first online booking
platform that can provide instant and accurate pricing - another significant and
welcome point of difference between it and the other charter search platforms."
sums up in saying “This is a real game changer for Brokers using the Returnjet
Speed, efficiency and accuracy are key for both Brokers and Operators,
and, by continuing to develop our platform to integrate with the very latest
technology it allows us to ensure Returnjet continues to be an agile and
flexible tool that can take advantage of new digital disruption models and
ultimately set a new service experience in online charter.”
