To develop the world’s first global search and booking platform connecting brokers and private clients to the real time movements of the world’s fleet of 10,000 private charter aircraft.
The system must process manual and automated scheduling feeds from thousands of operators and interpret real time and future availability and estimate accurate costing (+/-1%) in seconds.
Brokers need to be able to select multiple aircraft and generate direct quotations from the operators of those aircraft.
We talked to brokers and operators and we analysed the competition before developing a platform second to none in the market. From developing the corporate ID to early phase market testing and strategic and blueprint build, we have worked closely with the client to achieve success.
We developed into the platform separate broker, private client and operator business management systems to enhance the user experience and loyalty. We developed at the platform’s core an exceptionally intuitive search facility. Client side, we developed a bespoke CRM for the Returnjet staff to talk to the administrator console.
Over 3 years of development with guidance from brokers and operators, we have created Returnjet.com using latest technologies in the field. This includes the latest PHP framework (Laravel) along with a state of the art visual theme.
At the system’s core is a highly complex search algorithm working with the price estimation library (flights prices based on the search criteria). Multiple API feeds are consumed every minute to fetch empty legs and aircraft flight schedules.
Returnjet continues to grow traffic weekly and is now considered by industry leaders as the world’s most accurate charter booking tool.
We continue to improve the search algorithm. We are now mobilising the technologies. We will be creating a desktop application for brokers / operators so they can take advantage of notifications and offline mode.
