• Corporate travel agency Global Crew Logistics helps the world’s largest private jet operators manage and purchase their flight crew members’ repositioning-related travel.

Miami Beach, FL | November 11, 2015– Aviation industry corporate travel management company Global Crew Logistics (GCL) continues to prove its leadership in travel procurement services for unscheduled carrier flight crew repositioning through its expanded global contracts with existing customers NetJets Aviation, Jet Aviation, and ExecuJet/Luxaviation Group. For 30 years, Miami-based Global Crew Logistics has been providing custom travel management services for many of the world’s leading private, fractional, charter, cargo, commercial aviation, jet management and fixed-based operator companies.

Global Crew Scheduling’s new expanded agreements include:

NetJets Aviation
A customer of Global Crew Logistics for its U.S. operations since 2000, fractional operator NetJets, Inc. is the worldwide leader in private aviation with the largest and most diverse jet fleet in the world. This year, NetJets consolidated its worldwide need for travel management services into a single GCL contract.

“Our corporate travel needs are unique,” said NetJets’ Vice President – Global Travel Mark Dropsey. “About 95 percent of our travel is last-minute, crew-centric and could be to or from almost anywhere on the planet. When we decided to consolidate our corporate travel purchasing, we saw GCL as great partner to be our global travel management company. They clearly understand the demands of our business and the importance we place on taking care of our crews. Their custom travel hotel and air programs and their technology have helped us control our travel costs, improve the efficiency of our repositioning and take care of our people no matter where they are or where they’re headed.”

With GCL as its exclusive travel management company, NetJets’ internal travel staff in both the U.S. and Europe can quickly book their crews’ hotel and travel needs using negotiated rates and fares through a customized Sabre interface while relying on GCL for mid-office quality control, ticketing, comprehensive reporting and more.

Luxaviation -CMI Group
Earlier this year, Global Crew Logistics’ client ExecuJet was acquired by Luxembourg-based Luxaviation Group, which is now the second largest corporate aircraft operator in the world, managing more than 250 aircraft and 20 FBO facilities. As a result of GCL’s successful history with ExecuJet, Luxaviation signed with GCL to expand its TMC support to all of Luxaviation’s divisions worldwide. With multi-lingual agents that average more than 12 years of experience, GCL’s call centers in Miami, Uruguay, and Portugal operate 24/7, on-call to help clients like Luxaviation with all of their crew repositioning-related travel needs.

Jet Aviation
General Dynamics subsidiary Jet Aviation, which operates a fleet of more than 250 aircraft, began relying on Global Crew Logistics for its U.S. operations in 2002; this year, it moved worldwide crew travel management to GCL.

“With its 4,500 employees operating across several different business units, we understand how critical it is that Jet Aviation be able to thoroughly analyze its company-wide travel trends and costs,” said Global Crew Logistics Chief Executive Officer Charlie McDonald. “With GCL’s software, Jet Aviation can easily view and sort transactions and reservations by employee; crew member; fleet; aircraft type; cost center; customer; jet owner; location; or any other required business metric.” Reporting includes analysis of cost per mile, average daily rate paid, market share per supplier and more.

Global Crew Logistics is also pleased to announce three new customers: Florida-based all-cargo carrier Western Global Airlines LLC; Miami-based aircraft leasing and charter operator AerLine Holdings LLC; and the Houston-based, business aviation trip management company, Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc.
