FlightView & Limo Companies: Navigate Business Bumps in the Road

Real-Time Flight Information Improves Customer Service and Cuts Costs


International LCT Show - LAS VEGAS (January 26, 2009) - For 85 percent of the limousine market, FlightView's real-time flight information delivers what's needed to navigate these tough times: ways to strengthen customer service and reduce costs.

With FlightView's FVXML Data Feed, limo companies can improve the customer experience with:

  • Confirmation of reservations up to 90 days in advance
  • Alerts of delayed flights - often well in advance of the airline's information
  • Certainty that a scheduled pick-up will be there when and where promised

In terms of operational benefits, the solution provides:

  • Elimination of wait times
  • Reduced fuel consumption
  • Smarter deployment of resources - drivers can pick up other passengers when a scheduled appointment is delayed

FlightView, a pioneer in the market for real-time flight information, provides up-to-the-minute information on flights in the air, and extracts the data directly from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), ensuring timeliness and accuracy. With information on more than 20,000 flights every day, limo companies across the country rely on FlightView to be there when the customer needs them.

"Between skyrocketing fuel costs, travel restrictions and curb-time restrictions at many major airports, the limo market has had a rough 12 months," said Mike Benjamin, CEO of FlightView. "Our customers are leading the way to recovery by focusing on what's needed most to differentiate - superior service and operational excellence."
