With this new fusion of technology, RocketRoute’s Marketplace users will be able to seamlessly place catering orders and hire ground transportation with the click of a button.
“We are extremely excited to have NBAA-BACE 2017 as the forum to unveil further enhancements to the RocketRoute Marketplace, these enhancements offer users access to new services in addition to the existing fuel and ground handling options. The inclusion of additional services such as Catering, Ground Transportation and permits further expands the relevance of the Marketplace,” said Steve Woods, Vice President of Sales & Vendor Relations at Rocket Route. “In welcoming Air Culinaire Worldwide and Universal Private Transport to the Marketplace we are able to offer pilots and aircraft operators access to these premium brands and their services via our digital platform that is revolutionizing the way services are sourced and ordered.”
The ability to order in-flight catering and book ground transportation is available to current RocketRoute Marketplace users, and interested members of the business aviation community can join for a free, by visiting www.rocketroute.com and selecting “Marketplace” or by downloading the RocketRoute app from the Apple App Store.
“Universal Private Transport is excited to partner up with RocketRoute to provide global transportation support coupled with an easy to use platform,” said Chris Kim, Managing Director at Universal Private Transport. “Backed by 50+ years in general aviation expertise, Universal Private Transport’s knowledge of the complexity of business aviation risk and stress, allows RocketRoute customers to have a single point of contact to provide a network of professional chauffeured vehicles in a global network.”
When building a trip, catering and ground transportation can now be added in addition to the fuel and handling services RocketRoute’s users have already grown accustomed to. These new services are available at top business aviation destinations around the globe, with specialized menus for London, Paris, Los Angeles and New York featured.
“We are excited to work with RocketRoute and Universal Private Transport to bring this new level of user experience to clients of all three of our companies,” said Paul Schweitzer, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Air Culinaire Worldwide. “We aim to make the ordering experience as seamless as possible for our valued clients.
