Unique Cloud based Solutions for the Airline Industry- Maximizing Yield and Profitability

Our Blu Cargo management solution offers airline operators a simple and effective way to leverage passenger transport assets to generate additional revenue through cargo hauling.

During turbulent times in the worldwide aviation industry, passenger aircraft are often underutilized or, even, unused. These cyclical interruptions are costly in terms of lost passenger revenue and put expensive gate assignments at risk, if routes are not flown. Based on our more than 25 years’ experience in the air cargo industry and decades of developing software solutions to empower more efficient operations, our Blu Cargo solution provides airline operators with a go-to-market capability that quickly and easily repurposes passenger aircraft for cargo and freight transport. Properly managed, cargo initiatives can provide a source of quick revenue and a means of reducing the financial impact of schedule interruptions.
