Luxaviation launches ‘eco-friendly’ charter travel management app


Helicopter and fixed wing specialist Luxaviation Group has launched a live charter travel management app, which is said to include “eco-friendly” travel options.

The Luxaviation App will enable clients to use carbon offset schemes and book empty leg flights at a lower cost on aircraft that would otherwise fly empty. They will also have the option to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as a means of cutting their flight’s carbon emissions.

The development of the app was in response to demand from clients, according to Pieter Steyn, chief information officer, Luxaviation. “We have developed this technology in-house so that it is totally customisable to react to the charter demands,” said Steyn. “We are leading the market during an exciting time for business aviation, as advancement in technology allows us to truly understand the behaviours of our customers.”

Developing existing features of the online platform, such as booking tracking from confirmation to arrival and aircraft’s specifications, the app offers live chat with Luxaviation charter teams even during flights.

Meanwhile, earlier this month Jetcraft partnered with software provider Bluetail to help protect aircraft value by digitally storing logbooks and records using its cloud-based platform.
