Falcon Aerospace Limited has launched two technology platforms designed to ease business jet booking and make access to the service more inclusive.
The business aviation firm introduced the products at a well-attended event in Lagos where it unveiled its operational business units.
The CEO, Chukwuerika Achum explained that Falcon Aerospace’s model was derived from the increased demand for business aviation.
Achum observed more Africans are doing business across and outside Africa, while non-Africans are flying into the continent for business and tourism.
“We are proud of our origin and are deeply committed to the continent’s development. As an organization with deep African roots and values, we possess a significant understanding of the business terrain in Africa.
“Through our business units, we aim to make a difference in an often exclusive and elusive market via the delivery of excellent customer service, adaptation of technology, inclusive customer targeting, and continuous innovation,” he added.
At the event, Falcon Aerospace unveiled three business units – Vivajets, CharterXE and FlyPJX.
Vivajets is a full business aviation company providing services including charter brokerage, fractional ownership, aircraft management, sales and leasing, consulting and training.
Vivajets, the company’s operational brand, will relate with regulators and other industry stakeholders to get the necessary permits, certifications and licenses for the group.
CharterXE is an automated private jet booking platform that provides access to the company’s charter brokerage services through digital devices.
Available as a mobile app and also via web, CharterXE leverages cutting edge technological innovation to cut through all the physical hassles involved in booking a private jet.
FlyPJX, a charter per seat booking platform designed to provide access to all the luxury of private jet service without needing to book the entire aircraft, provides important information and flight schedules that enable the user to select preferences.
“Tonight, we are celebrating the birth of Falcon Aero and its products, heralding a new future of possibilities in the African business aviation market,” said Tejumade Salami, Head of Business Excellence.
According to Salami, Falcon Aero aims to ‘democratize’ business aviation and make the service accessible and affordable to more people.
Director of Air Transport Regulation, National Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), Captain Chris Najomo commended the company for introducing innovations into the business aviation market and stressed the importance of regulation.
“I commend Mr. Achum and his team for putting these products and this event together. Falcon Aero has also taken serious steps to ensure all permits, licences and certifications necessary for smooth operations are obtained,” Najomo said.
