Luxaviation launches ‘eco-friendly’ charter travel management app


Luxaviation Group has launched a charter travel management app, which includes “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. The clients will also have the option to use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as a means of cutting their flight’s carbon emissions.

According to Pieter Steyn, chief information officer, Luxaviation, the development of the app was a direct response to demand from the business aviation market.

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.”

The new app comes after the launch of the operator’s online platform in September last year, which the firm said has been a key tool ever since. It includes new features such as live chat with Luxaviation charter teams even during flights and draws on the existing features of the online platform, such as booking tracking from confirmation to arrival, as well as access to aircraft’s specifications.

Other business aviation companies are investing more in digital platforms too. Last week, Jetcraft partnered with software provider Bluetail to help brokers protect clients’ aircraft value by digitally storing logbooks and records using its cloud-based platform
