Our approach is different as we combine a blend of our experienced team with our own underpinning technology which drives automation and intelligent decision-making.
Upon provision of our flight support services, we provide all of our customers with complete, transparent access to the systems we use, meaning you’ll have complete visibility and control over your software application.
Our Trip Planning and Support services include:
Airport handling arrangements
Combining our extensive wealth of operations experience with our own advanced software system, myairops flight, we have the knowledge to determine which handling agent/FBO to use to provide the best handling services down route at your destination airports. With agreements in place at various airports, we can sometimes receive discounts on handling fees which can be passed on to myairops clients. Not all handling agents provide the service level we would expect for our clients, from efficient communication to quality of services at each location, we look at all aspects of handling services to determine our preferred suppliers.
Slots in Europe can be limited in peak seasons, requested slots versus what is allocated can create frustration amongst operators with tight schedules. What if you had the knowledge to hand of slot tolerances for each airport, so you knew what time you could take off either side of that slot to not bust a slot time and face a warning or worse, a fine from an airport? With a large, experienced operations department team and a state-of-the-art operating system, myairops Trip Support is the knowledge fountain perfect for an operator requiring that additional bit of information to create the perfect trip experience that puts less strain and stress on both passengers and operators.
Not all Customs and Immigration services are available for the same times an airport is open. Through information stored in the myairops system, along with a proactive attitude from our team, we verify we can operate a schedule based on if customs and immigration is available for a flight as well as checking an airport is open. Time frames for supplying passenger and crew information to customs and immigration also varies around the world. We ensure our clients are aware of these time frames, so our clients are not penalised for late information supplied.
We use your requirements to ensure all aspects of the plan meet your operational needs. We will arrange and plan for all alternatives, ensure airports are open and viable and make sure plans are filed and uploaded to your flight planning tool of choice. We will ensure flight levels are appropriately planned on the basis of fuel requirements and comfort.

With 40 years of commercial operator background, let myairops navigate the increasingly complex global requirements for commercial charter permissions, so you don’t have to.
Last minute trips often fall beneath the lead time for an Overflight permission to be granted. Forward thinking from the myairops Trip Support team will look at alternative routes and obtain additional overflight permits should a permit not be approved before the flight is planned to take place, in order to prevent any risk of a schedule needing to be amended.
Knowing which countries require a Landing Permit depending on registration of an aircraft, type of operation, how many seats are on board an aircraft and how long it takes to obtain a Landing Permit are all valuable bits of information to know when planning a new trip schedule. myairops trip support has all the information to hand to be able to and know when to obtain a permit correctly and efficiently.
Permit to Fly
Have a technical fault with an aircraft but have approval for a one-off flight to fly to a maintenance facility? All the paperwork and workload for that approval alone can be very stressful for an Aircraft Operator. Having a Trip Support expert on hand to be able to relieve some of the pressure can be invaluable. When Operating on a permit to fly, each country over flown requires notification of the flight and they must provide their approval for the flight to operate. With a rare extensive list of contacts within the myairops department, this process can be accelerated.
