BOSTON – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Tuvoli, an open technology platform that enables charter aircraft brokers and operators to seamlessly buy, sell and pay for flights, announced today that it has acquired FlyEasy, an advanced aviation software solutions company. The acquisition expands the services it provides to Tuvoli’s customers, including FlyEasy’s map-based search platform for business aviation and marketing tools.
Tuvoli was founded in 2019 with the aim of bringing cutting-edge technology to a wider segment of the air charter industry. Charter brokers and operators on the platform were able to buy or sell flights with secure and instant payment facilitation either through a desktop web experience or on their mobile devices.
Both Tuvoli and FlyEasy customers have expressed a desire to reduce the number of independent, disconnected technology tools they use. This acquisition offers these customers a wider range of capabilities on a single platform. And it will reduce their workload and increase efficiency.
« The FlyEasy team see the world the same way we do at Tuvoli, » said Greg Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tuvoli. « Together we see the opportunity for a more efficient and better networked industry. »
Charter companies and brokers use the FlyEasy platform to optimize charter sales. With FlyEasy, their customers receive automated empty flight flights, instant trip estimates, flights to suit their preferences, and professional charter deals, making their charter sales teams more efficient. These tools, which retain the FlyEasy brand name and are available on a subscription basis, are now integrated into the Tuvoli platform and enable a “two worlds” user experience.
« We continue to take a humble approach to developing the FlyEasy tools, actively listening to what operators and brokers need and using building technology to address their vulnerabilities, » said FlyEasy CEO & amp; Co-founder Shaan Bhanji. “We test our technology with customers to ensure that the product offers them exceptional value. As part of the Tuvoli family, we plan to maintain this customer-centric focus and look forward to further developing these tools with our Tuvoli colleagues. «
A new product demonstrating the power of Tuvoli and the innovation of FlyEasy will be launched later this year.
Bhanji has moved to Tuvoli as Vice President of Business Development. Konstantin Filatov FlyEasy CTO & amp; Co-founder is Tuvoli’s new integration architect and Paul Mulko, FlyEasy Vice President Marketing & amp; Sales is now sales manager at Tuvoli.
