International Trip Planning Services (ITPS) and Universal are the ones that take care of our trip planning needs. ITPS partners with ARINCDirect, and their services are seamless. In my opinion, Universal leads the industry, delivering current information and providing services that others do not.

World Fuel Services is our choice due to the personal attention provided to the operators. It goes beyond the preferred mode of communication – in other words, e-mail. We just do a WhatsApp call that replaces 10 e-mails.

ForeFlight is my favorite trip planning partner. What an incredible application! We have a self-dispatch system. Therefore, the crew does all the trip planning. We started using ForeFlight a year ago. We all had our doubts at first after moving over from our previous provider, but it’s incredible! We did a few trips to Europe and the Middle East from South Africa, and the trip support and planning were all spot on. We find the platform very intuitive and user friendly. And it’s very reasonably priced.
