Volantio is a global leader in post-booking revenue and capacity optimization software for airlines. Based in Atlanta, GA, Volantio partners with major airlines globally such as Qantas, Iberia, Alaska Airlines, Volaris, and others.
Yana, Volantio’s flagship web-based platform, leverages machine learning algorithms to drive higher unit revenues and improved capacity utilization after customers have booked their flights, while also improving overall customer experience.
Airlines use the technology to proactively identify flexible passengers on target flights, make them offers to move to lower demand flights, and automatically re-book them once they accept. Passengers are notified, via mobile, days in advance of departure, minimizing last-minute hassle and providing enough time to change plans accordingly.
The Yana platform also provides a significantly improved customer experience for passengers on the day of departure, when weather disruptions, aircraft swaps, oversell situations, or irregular operations may impact customers. Airlines as well can save significant resources, and decrease front-line stress, by automating these processes.
Volantio has been backed by leading strategic and industry investors globally, including JetBlue Technology Ventures, International Airlines Group, and Qantas Ventures.
