Tuvoli promises to make life easier for private jet charter brokers…and their customers

Private jet rental brokers can better serve clients by using a mobile platform the Directional Aviation company is launching next week during NBAA

Kenn Ricci’s Directional Aviation does everything from repairing (Constant Aviation) and remanufacturing private jets (Nextant Aerospace) to pilot training  (Simcom). Still, outside the industry, private aviation fliers likely most know it for its three consumer brands – Flexjet, Sentient Jet, and PrivateFly  – all housed under OneSky Flight, LLC.

Now Tuvoli, which means, “to fly” in Italian, promises to make life easier for private jet charter operators and brokers, with several key benefits flowing directly to consumers. Greg Johnson, Tuvoli’s president and chief information officer for OneSky, says his goal is to take the friction out of on-demand charter.

Private jet charter prices are 30% lower than average on-demand prices, the company says

Private aviation charter platform PrivateFly, a Directional Aviation company (think Sentient Jet, Flexjet, and Nextant Aerospace), has announced a new and extended list of discounted, fixed-price charter routes for the autumn and winter season.

Last Fall, it launched the fixed price concept between London and Geneva before expanding it for the summer season. City Pair flights accounted for over 20% of its European flights during the period. It also launched $29,000 one-way pricing between New York and San Francisco or Los Angeles, which also continues.

According to PrivateFly, its City Pairs exclusives are 30% lower than average on-demand prices on the same or an equivalent aircraft.

PrivateFly CEO Adam Twidell on new products and his new owner

A year after its acquisition by Directional Aviation’s OneSky placing it alongside Flexjet and Sentient Jet, PrivateFly is gearing up for more growth after a merger with Skyjet and launching its City Pairs product

Last September Kenn Ricci’s Directional Aviation snapped up tech-driven U.K.-based private jet charter broker PrivateFly as it prepared for more expansion in Europe.

In the year since, Directional folded its own broker Skyjet into PrivateFly, launched fixed-rate pricing between key European cities, expanded it to select U.S. routes, and signaled its intention to grow here with the appointment of former NetJets and XOJET executive Gregg Slow as president of North America.

Private Jet Card Comparisons recently caught up with PrivateFly co-founder and CEO Adam Twidell during Revolution.aero in San Francisco where he talked about the deal, the year since, what’s ahead, and synergies with Directional’s OneSky siblings Flexjet and Sentient Jet. Below is a condensed and edited version of the interview.
