New airline BermudAir has signed a deal with travel technology provider Ink Innovation to provide services including online check-in, load control and departure control systems.
‘We are excited to partner with Ink to introduce their ecosystem of solutions to our airline operations. Ink’s technology is recognised as the perfect match for a new airline’, said George Henderson, Chief Experience Officer at BermudAir. ‘As a newly launched company, it is crucial for us to adopt flexible technology that can readily adapt to changing market demands. We are confident that Ink will provide us with the tools we need to streamline our passenger and baggage operations throughout our network.’
The first flight took to the skies September 1, 2023, and BermudAir will be flying to Boston Logan International; Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International; and Westchester County Airport in New York from its base at L.F Wade Intl. airport in Bermuda by September 22. A licence to fly was only granted July 26, following approval from the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) for an Air Operating Certificate (AOC).
A phased introduction has meant the airline’s Embraer E175 aircraft has begun service with an 88-seat configuration — but only 44 seats sold for each flight. Following delivery of its new suites on November 1, the aircraft will be configured with just 30 seats.
‘With the arrival of BermudAir, travelling to Bermuda from the US for an unforgettable island escape becomes much easier. We are delighted to be working with the team from BermudAir and look forward to supporting them on what promises to be an exciting journey, opening up new experiences for business passengers’, said Blaine Powell, the Chief Sales Officer at Ink.
