Charter Industry set to change – AVMIN Introduces JetBidders

jetbidder-article

Earlier this month, AVMIN launched its new charter tool, JetBidders which allows customers to find the cheapest and most appropriate aircraft option for their needs via the entire JetBidders Operator Database.

The Flight Centre Travel Group, with all its subsidiary companies will soon be rolling out the program Australia-wide to all travel agents and the large multi-million dollar government contracts which they hold.

For customers, the JetBidders system will provide a one-stop shop to request charter quotes for rotary, light aircraft, private jets and airliners – viewing all the quotes in one simple easy to read table. In addition, agents will have the ability to manage their clients’ charter portfolio.

For Operators, JetBidders will provide, exclusive access to charters not listed elsewhere on the market, allowing them to quote on any charter Australia wide with complete anonymity, view where their quote ranks (1st, 3rd or 10th) and allow only one opportunity for a requote.

In its infancy, Operators have embraced this refreshing change to the industry with JetBidders signing up 25% of the Australian operator market in 2 weeks since the soft launch. With such a large percentage already signed up and new operators signing up daily JetBidders will certainly revolutionize the charter industry.

Operators and Clients are able to sign up now at: www.jetbidders.com

State of Origin Fan Day

This year AVMIN had the pleasure of providing the Queensland State of Origin team, media and sponsors with a charter aircraft to Proserpine on their annual 'Fan Day' tour. Beginning at Gallopers Sports Club in Brisbane, guests were treated to a hot breakfast and a seamless check in before boarding a private bus which saw them drive onto the airport tarmac, directly to the aircraft.

After tea, coffee, light snacks & a few bumps we had made it to the sugar cane growing regional town of Proserpine. The players were welcomed with gifts at the airport before making their way into town.

3,390 is the official population count of Proserpine, and it seemed as though every single one of them crowded the main street to meet and greet their footy idols. The team spent 2 hours walking up the main street snapping photos & signing autographs before a lunch function at Proserpine Entertainment Centre.

The afternoon saw the team head to Les Stagg Oval for some light drills and yet another chance for the locals to meet the players up close and personal.

As all good things must come to an end, so did the Fan day for yet another year! The team, players and sponsors were whisked away to the airport where AVMIN were waiting with doors open ready to board. AVMIN had the team busses awaiting at the aircraft in Brisbane ready to take the team to Camp Maroon in preparation for Game 3!

Nepal Evacuations

airport-pic

Following the devastating impacts of the Nepal earthquake, AVMIN was tasked with the evacuation of a large group of stranded Australians from the disaster zone. Our AVMIN team were on the first available flight to Malaysia, and worked around the clock to ensure that all phases of the evacuation flight ran smoothly and successfully. Arrival into Nepal proved to be challenging, with a mass military aircraft presence, our aircraft was placed into a holding pattern until an aircraft parking bay became available. This almost resulted in us diverting back to Malaysia. Fortunately, space became available and our AVMIN team touched down at 21:30, and shortly after, boarding our Aussies to begin their journey home. All of the passengers were monitored by First aid Medical officers on board the aircraft and were given a hot meal before some much needed rest.

Our thoughts are with the families and friends affected by this tragedy. You can donate to the rescue and rebuilding in Nepal Here.
