CharterSync has established its active airline operator-base after successfully onboarding over 100 live cargo aircraft onto its platform within its first six months of trading.
CharterSync says it is the only company to offer a bespoke charter booking platform connecting freight forwarders directly with airlines. The company now has availability to a wide range of cargo aircraft from smaller piston aircraft through to B737 freighters capable of carrying 20 tonnes of cargo.
Automating the broker process for air charter is proving to have significant advantages for freight forwarders, it says. These include high response rates with quotes only taking a matter of minutes, providing clients with the highest possibility of securing the most appropriate and ideally located aircraft for their charter.
Commenting on CharterSync’s success thus far, co-founder, Ed Gillett says: “The integration rate of new airlines onto the platform has far exceeded our expectations. This is because we have made the charter process easier for airlines, which in turn allows us to get a very high response rate for a given charter request.
“When airlines are quoting on our platform in a matter of minutes, it obviously provides our clients with the highest possibility of securing a charter. This is the unique advantage we have by using our revolutionary technology,” Gillett says.
Having surpassed its early growth and onboarding expectations, CharterSync continues to focus on its European and Northern African routes, a market the company believes it now has fully covered and will look to expand its coverage in new territories in the new year.
“While greatly encouraged by the success of our first six months of trading, we are not complacent,” Simon Watson, CharterSync co-founder adds. “We are always striving for continued innovation, and to make the charter process easier and quicker for both forwarder and operator. Working very closely with our airlines we are constantly striving for improvements based on their feedback.”
“CharterSync is the first platform to successfully digitise the air cargo charter industry, pairing clever technology with a knowledgeable team,” notes Air-Taxi Europe which completed 34 flights on the platform in 2019.
Similarly, Mali Air, Austria says: “As a private jet operator, our booking rate for cargo specific charters has increased threefold since we started working with CharterSync”. Mali Air says it had a confirmed booking success rate of 71 per cent on platform, and over 9,567 kms flown.
