The Residence by Etihad added to the Avinode platform in industry first
Following the launch of our partnership with Etihad earlier in the year, we are delighted to announce the latest development in the collaboration. Avinode, the world’s leading online tool for buying and selling air charter, will be listing the Residence on it’s Marketplace.
The 3 room suite, available on the airline’s A380 fleet, will be marketed exclusively by Chapman Freeborn on the Avinode Marketplace. Avinode will list each scheduled flight, where The Residence is available, as a potential empty leg and match these to relevant flight searches.
Oliver King, managing director, Avinode, says: “One of business aviation’s biggest challenges is to pull new customers into the industry, to experience the product. When Chapman Freeborn approached Avinode with the idea to list Etihad’s The Residence, we were excited to explore whether our members could leverage that business, and hopefully reap the benefits at either end of the customer’s experience. By bringing new customers to the industry, we hope that brokers and operators will be able to target these additional opportunities.”
Alex Berry, group sales and marketing director at Chapman Freeborn adds: “We are always looking for ways to innovate in our industry, and this unique move will see Etihad’s superb premium products presented in a whole new format to a new audience.”
We unveiled our relationship with Etihad Airways earlier this year, with Chapman Freeborn promoting and marketing the carrier’s range of top-end living spaces to its own clients whilst extending their network with onward private jet charter. Etihad Airways’ A380s currently operate three daily services from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow, daily from Abu Dhabi to New York JFK and Sydney.
