Five Tools that Help you Increase Flight Sales
The aviation industry is such an easygoing industry… if only! As a business aviation operator, you certainly understand the daily challenges of working in this environment. It is an eternal love-hate relationship that keeps you hooked up. It is a living and dynamic creature (or beast?) that keeps on evolving, changing, challenging us.
In aviation, it’s well known there are no two days alike. Being part of the industry is synonymous with being dynamic, proactive and a massive… massive problem solver. And your clients’ needs are no different. When it comes to being proactive with your clients, you have to understand their needs and be willing and able to assist them. Time is of the essence, and you must get to your customers now, not later. But how can you do that?
Simple: You need tools to make it happen. The right tools in place and caring for your customers’ needs will give you a competitive advantage. Let us show you five different tools Skylegs flight sales software provides that add value to your customers.
1. Automatic flight quotation system
You have a dynamic business, with very dynamic clients. That is, you need a state-of-the-art commercial and private flight quotation platform. Your client’s requests can take different sizes, shapes and forms; for that we have a solution. You can benefit from the different tools the Skylegs platform has to offer:
- Use any currency that your client may need.
- Customize your quote file by changing the content, layout and colours.
- Use the flight time calculation provided by your preferred flight planning integration.
Remember you are in the business of aviation or “the living creature”, and you need to take variables into account. We know, your clients know that every single detail matters. You will be able to create quotes much faster while keeping different details in mind: airports, number of pax, distance, overnight fees, and so on. Once you provide flexibility and options to your clients, there is a great chance of closing the sale.
2. Client details and preferences archive
Clients are the core of every business. In aviation, we like to take it to the next level. We are all about building relationships, and you can find this through personalisation. This is the key to bringing loyal customers to your brand. It does not matter if your business is big or small; add a personal touch and they will keep coming back to you.
By keeping the customers’ data on our platform, we will warn you about their preferences or special requirements. You will be able to keep track of their passports, IDs, visas and other travel documents. When handling documents in large numbers, you can lose track of them in everyday operations. We store and keep them handy for you.
Aviation is all about efficiency, especially when managing the core of your business: your customers.
3. Empty and shared legs offer
Empty legs… No aircraft operator in the world likes those ferry flights, not even the one that won The Most Ferry Flights in a Year award. Being able to sell those empty legs can make a difference to your business revenue and to your clients.
For this, once again integration comes in place and you can benefit from it. How? With FlyEasy Software, GetJet, Avinode or any other integration, you can offer those empty legs live in the marketplace. You will even be able to offer shared legs, giving yet another option to your potential customers.
WhatsApp messages or email send-outs for an empty leg? That worked back in the day, but it is time to get to the next level when it comes to getting clients on board. Skylegs flight sales software will do the footwork for you, matching all those empty legs to ongoing client requests in the market. Making that match possible is a win-win situation for you and your customers.
4. Carbon offset calculation
The aviation industry amounts to 2% of all human-induced CO2 emissions. Today, clients and organisations aware when it comes to their carbon footprint. We at Skylegs are no different. Keeping track of the CO2 emissions and being transparent to your clients will go a long way.
The good news is that more and more people are willing to compensate for their CO2 emissions on their flights. Without having to waste your time on complex calculations, you will be able to add this margin to your quote with the click of a button.
Bring value to your service and create a feeling of belonging for your customers. Your company is committed to the environment and the flyers will be glad to know that.
5. Avinode flight requests sync
Receiving Avinode requests on the Skylegs platform helps you send quotes to clients in a few minutes. No one has time to put all the aircraft pictures and client details one by one, not if you want to make it in the industry. You can avoid all the manual hurdles saving you and your client valuable time.
