New helicopter booking platform Get Heli is preparing for its launch by opening its pre-registration.
The business-to-business (B2B) marketplace connects helicopter charter brokers and charter operators for simplified transactions. The platform strives to introduce the speed and efficiency of online communication and e-commerce to the charter helicopter business, while still respecting the bespoke nature and traditions of the industry.
Get Heli has recently taken on Laurent Vallet as its new CEO to help launch its online platform. Vallet is a keen helicopter pilot and has more than 15 years of experience working in complex B2B markets, including structured finance and advisory at JPMorgan.
Commenting on his new postition, Vallet said, “I am thrilled to be contributing to the transformation of the industry in this new digital age. There is a clearly identified need for new technology within the charter market, to streamline communication and bookings between operators and brokers.
“We are going to provide assistance to both sides so they can both grow their revenues, while having more time to focus on other areas of their businesses. We strongly believe our platform will reveal the untapped potential for growth of the charter market in the UK.”
