KinectAir launches corporate accounts as on-demand point-to-point air travel contributes to business efficiency

KinectAir, the operating system of the private aviation and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) markets, has announced the availability of corporate accounts for its growing fleet of aircraft accessible via its Part 135 partnerships. KinectAir has been operating its first regional “node” for six months with each flight being flown profitably. With this success has come demand from businesses operating in the Pacific Northwest to leverage KinectAir’s point-to-point air travel solution to increase their own operating efficiency and receive the benefits of pre-payment for corporate travel. By offering a pre-paid corporate product, KinectAir benefits corporations managing their travel expenses and budgets heading into 2023.

Before launching commercial operations in May 2022, KinectAir offered a preview app to allow people to understand local airport accessibility and price point for on-demand journeys. The app received tens of thousands of organic entries cementing demand and signalling desired route patterns across the US. The sheer volume of search is attributed to changing business and leisure travel needs and a lack of options due to commercial route cancellations. Since launching services in May and developing KinectAir’s live app, the company has generated over 1,000 quotes, and been used to book over 800 flight hours for over 200 flights. To address this clear consumer demand for point-to-point air travel, KinectAir added a second aircraft to its inaugural regional node in June 2022, and a third this November. The business now has two Diamond DA62s and a Pilatus PC12 with a fourth aircraft planned to come on the network imminently.

KinectAir Launches Commercial Operations in Pacific Northwest

KinectAir, the operating system of the private aviation and Advanced Air Mobility markets, announced this week it has begun commercial operations via its first trusted network partner, Direct2 Air, a Part 135 operator based out of Bend, OR. Providing service across the Pacific Northwest, KinectAir now operates revenue-generating, on-demand private flights from Truckee, California to Vancouver, Washington and from Reno, Nevada to Seattle, Portland, and any of the countless regional airfields in between.

“At KinectAir we provide the software solution for Part 135 operators today to dramatically improve their operational efficiency and revenue. Our launch brings to market the software foundation - the enabler - of the emerging Advanced Air Mobility market,” said Jonathan Evans, CEO, KinectAir. “The demand for private aviation has never been higher, and our software platform networks together the supply, demand, and meaningful operational load inherent in aviation. We’re thrilled to be operational in our home region and begin getting passengers accustomed to the platform they will use in the decades ahead to book point-to-point air travel.”

“Direct2 Air’s been working to cultivate a community of passengers that rely on our aircraft to enjoy their life to the fullest. But in order to scale that opportunity and optimize our own operations, we’ve sought out software that was purpose-built to enable and grow regional air mobility. The only provider with the unique combination of trusted aviation operations and software experience required to solve this issue in such a safe and regulated industry is KinectAir,” said Toby Woods, CEO, Direct2 Air. “It was a no-brainer upon learning how their software enables efficiency for Part 135 operators to have our fleet integrated as the primary operator in their network”.
