During busy times of high demand, we understand it can get challenging to manage aircraft requests. Avinode is still the most valuable tool to sell your availability. If you do have hours to fill, Avinode is the best way to make that known. Below we have a few suggestions to help you setup for success during times of high demand.
Takeoff ready - promote your ASAP availability with crew read to go or block your availability up to 96 hours out
Availability rules- setup time limits of when you want to receive requests
Aircraft schedule - If you integrate your FMS with Avinode, make sure the schedule is properly syncing for the system to read your real time availability
Monitor/Update your pricing profiles - this is one of this spring cleaning actions that we always recommend to make sure your fees are updated.
Create Seasonal Pricing Profiles - if you charge different rates depending on the time of the year or special events
Create pricing based on city pairs -Avinode will ignore your pricing profile and charge the flat rate of your one-way pricing for specific city pairs
Routing rules - By default your aircraft is priced and routed based on your scheduled position. With Routing Rules you can control which other options should be considered
Restricted Areas- you can restrict receiving requests for certain countries, ICAO regions and (or) airports. This will help you receive more quality requests
Preferred list of buyers - if you manager your trips in Avinode under Trips > Selling, creating your high and low priority customer lists will help you prioritize getting back to the right partners
