Today, we’re announcing our exciting strategic global partnership with leading aviation services company RocketRoute. Like us, RocketRoute is driven by innovative and smart technology. Working together, we will explore synergies of process and service to more fully enhance the day-to-day performance of general aviation operators.
Only a few weeks ago, Victor’s successfully closed a $20m Series B investment round led by BP Ventures, the investment arm of global energy company BP. At the time, we shared our plan to further develop Victor’s unique, data-driven ecosystem into a new transactional B2B marketplace connecting suppliers, re-sellers (brokers) and other flight-planning and aviation fuel providers. Our agreement with RocketRoute today complements this strategy, and will allow both businesses to collaborate on delivering compelling digital solutions for operators spanning integrated charter sales, bookings, flight ops management and trip support across a wide range of missions.
“Victor looks forward to collaborating on a range of projects with RocketRoute” says Clive Jackson, founder & CEO of Victor. “Both companies have an impressive track record for digital innovation in the general aviation space. By pooling our knowledge and resource, I’m confident we can deliver fresh efficiencies for operators and an exciting step-change for the wider industry.”
“Rocket Route’s platform has long benefitted operators, connecting and arranging aviation services direct from leading service providers” says Kurt Lyall, Co-founder of RocketRoute. “Victor shares our belief in better connecting the general aviation sector. Therefore this agreement will allow us to keep disrupting and advancing the industry, delivering new efficiencies and opportunities for partners, as well as our own two businesses.”
“The strategic partnership gives us the opportunity to provide existing customers with improved access to the flight sales market where this is desired” adds Justin Coelho, Co-founder and Chief Sales Officer (CSO) of RocketRoute. “We’re looking forward to progressing a close working relationship with Victor.”
RocketRoute helps flyers to get airborne, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. The company’s offering works anywhere, on any device and brings together into one system everything the individual pilot or flight department needs to operate an aircraft, and to connect directly with service suppliers on the ground. It has processed over one million flights for users flying worldwide.
With innovative and smart technology for flight planning, fuel, and concierge services, RocketRoute is – like Victor – transforming the aviation industry. The principles of fast, easy to use, direct access have been at the heart of the business since its formation in 2010, fuelled by its passion for aviation.
We more than share that passion, as well as a desire to disrupt the market, advance it and unlock wider positive change and efficiencies. This strategic agreement with RocketRoute promises much. Like our partner, we can’t wait to get started.
