Share Article

Enerjet, a Canadian-based air charter operation, named AvFinity as its network provider for aviation messages, government border authority requirements and other terrestrial communications.

We are keenly aware that Enerjet must strive for the highest safety and service levels while we seek new and innovative ways to manage costs

Enerjet--Canada's newest air charter operation--recently selected AvFinity as its aviation messaging network provider.

AvFinity, a Texas-based network, will provide Enerjet with AFTN messaging as well as APIS (Advance Passenger Information Service) submissions of passenger and crew manifests to government border authorities in the U.S. and Canada. AvFinity is authorized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for transmitting APIS submissions in both batch and pre-departure (AQQ) formats.

In addition, AvFinity will help Enerjet build an internal network and establish direct connections for passing and receiving IATA Type B messages to frequent recipients including other airlines and service providers. This unique AvFinity service eliminates costly monthly charges for connections, middleware and network management. AvFinity is authorized to maintain as well as request assignment or transfer of IATA Type B addresses for global aviation companies.

Terrestrial (ground to ground) communications make up more than 90 percent of a typical airline's messaging traffic. AvFinity's patent-pending software technology brings down the cost of terrestrial messaging regardless of protocol, format or destination. AvFinity typically offers 30 percent savings over other providers.

"We are keenly aware that Enerjet must strive for the highest safety and service levels while we seek new and innovative ways to manage costs," said Darcy Morgan, Enerjet vice president of business performance and integration. "The addition of AvFinity to our communications and technology portfolio extends our operational flexibility, enhances the continuity and reliability of our communications, and provides efficiencies that will grow with our operations."
