One of the things we constantly hear at SimpleCharters is how we've dramatically reduced the amount of paperwork necessary to book a charter flight. As you've surely experienced, the typical flow looks like this:
- Initial PDF quotes for 3+ aircraft options
- Wire instructions & credit card authorization PDF
- Passenger information PDF form
- Preliminary PDF itinerary
- Amended/final PDF itineraries
Keeping all of these PDFs organized can be a significant challenge for even the most seasoned flyer-- especially when you have flights back-to-back.
In our quest to go "paperless", we first eliminated the traditional private charter quote request paradigm by introducing the industry's first online booking platform.
Today we announce an important update designed to further simplify private aviation.
Live Trip Sheets
The moment you book a private flight on SimpleCharters, you'll receive instant email confirmation letting you know your flight has been confirmed and scheduled.
Your trip sheet will remain automatically updated as new information is made available, such as pilot names and contacts, FBO selections, and any applicable details.
Updating passenger information yourself
Although private jet passengers do not have to use TSA or go through traditional airline security or check bags, each passenger is required to carry identification and passports for international travel.
Before live trip sheets, all of this information would have to be scanned or emailed to the charter provider to be added to the itinerary at least 24 hours prior to departure.
We've made it even easier.
Now you can easily provide this information within the trip sheet, without having to fill out paper/PDF forms. If your passengers change, don't have passport information available, etc. you can update it at your convenience anytime up until 24 hours before the flight.
If there's anything else you would like to see incorporated into the trip sheets and post flight follow up, please reach out to let us know!
