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.
