Schedaero integrates FlightBridge for seamless travel management

Intuitive flight operations system Schedaero, part of the Avinode Group, is announcing a new integration with travel management platform FlightBridge, to allow FBOs, flight departments, operators and pilots to seamlessly manage trip services in one place.

FlightBridge, which streamlines reservations of trip services such as hotels, rental cars and catering is, from today, integrated for all Schedaero users.

The integration will cut the amount of time operators spend copying data from one system to another by auto-populating trip information from Schedaero to FlightBridge and vice versa, streamlining workflows and reducing the potential for human error.

Johan Sjöberg, executive vice president, Schedaero, says: “At Schedaero, we are very focused on reducing the time our customers spend on re-entering data in different systems. This industry relies heavily on emails, and when last minute schedule changes happen it’s a real challenge to keep all parties on the same page. Our vision is to streamline this process and allow users to update their data in one place – the rest happens automatically.

“We are constantly adding software that operators use to our portfolio of integrations. The FlightBridge integration is an important step on our journey to a complete and seamless digital workflow for our customers.”

Shana Hoernke, charter sales, Latitude 33 Aviation, a beta-tester customer of the Schedaero/Flightbridge integration says: “In FlightBridge, we love that we can find and compare different car rental companies with prices in just two minutes. We can choose the best option at the best price quickly and then all the information gets pushed back to Schedaero immediately. During the beta-testing phase of this new integration, we have been saving at least three hours a week in time, due to the reduction in duplicate data entry – it has made booking car services a dream!”

Schedaero can be integrated with any technology tool used by operators, whether by building ready-made integrations, or by funnelling data into other applications via the Schedaero API.

FlightBridge is relied on by more than 300 aircraft operators and is successfully integrated with 20 technology partners.
