Business aviation hotel platform Down-Route surpasses 100 registered operators

Down-Route, the expenses management and hotel booking platform for the business aviation industry, has reached a milestone with 100 operators registered to its service.

Down-Route is free to use and provides operators with a live expenses management mobile app for travelling crews, which can be managed from a company’s finance department via a web portal. The app also provides a comprehensive and adaptable hotel booking facility, which offers hotel rooms at a discounted rate.

Andy Hudson, CEO of Down-Route, said, “We came to EBACE last year and generated a tremendous amount of interest before we had even launched the Down-Route app. This year sees us in Geneva [Switzerland] with an improved product that both the management and travelling crews of operators are seeing the significant benefits of.

“Using the customer feedback we have received, and through our own research and development, we are adding new features to Down-Route all the time. We are looking forward to showing off the new version of the platform at EBACE this year and to signing up our next 100 customers”.
