Avionero is developing the next generation flight search service. This service is inspired by the vast unmet needs of modern travelers who are left frustrated and abandoned in their search for personalized flight travel options online.
The existing flight search engines (e.g. Skyscanner, momondo) are based on the logic, technology and UX created back in the ‘90s.
This means that they a) are built on the predetermined assumptions about the behavior of the user (e.g. assuming that a user visiting the platform already has their travel destination and dates in mind) and b) drastically limit flight search personalisation opportunities through outdated technological frameworks.
As a result, user trust in the search engines is low, while the frustration is high. Avionero is well positioned to break this paradigm.
It has developed and pre-validated (TRL-6) the first prototype of the flight search service that truly puts the user in the driving seat while searching for their dream flight travel online. With the combination of powerful AI technology and an easy-to-use interface, Avionero provides a much convenient flight search service.

Current travel sites use the term â€œsocial travelâ€ but only allow users to share information amongst existing friends. Vacation Relation connects users that have never met before and transforms a virtual connection into a real life relation when they arrive.
All communication is done through the user’s existing social networks (Facebook and LinkedIn). These conversations combined with statistical data also allow users to plan and book their vacation based on socialistic aspects.
This functionality does not exist in the current online travel market. Mission Statement: To provide users with a better overall vacation experience through the use of their existing social media.
We want to help people â€œSocialize Their Vacationâ€.. .
