SWEDEN, MALMÖ: The new Swedish-Russian flight search startup Avionero – which launched internationally the 11th of July this year – is the very first in the world to give their users the power to decide where to launch next; through a so-called Gamified Rollout. Avionero has an aggressive expansion plan where they will launch their flight search website in a new country every third month. Because they are fully focused on their end users, they decided to let them lead their expansion, upon which the users can vote in a true democratic spirit.
Avionero is a new user friendly flight search site based on advanced AI technology with features like Tabs right on site, Open or multiple dates, No dates, Search a whole country, Personalized results, Visualized results, Feedback on results and Inspiration pages.* The team behind Avionero has a genuine interest in people’s flexibility, curiosity and comfort, and their goal is to always simplify the process for the end user. In line with Avionero’s vision and philosophy – to always have the end user in mind – they now want to include, empower and increase closeness to their users, by letting them actively participate in the expansion. Avionero wants to create commitment, and bring the users with them on every step; support, product, and expansion. The result of this is that Avionero now provides a new voting feature, where they offer a large amount of countries in which they potentially could open next. Among these their users, and potential users, can vote one time each for the country where they would find Avionero useful.
From the day when there is a result, the team will get less than three months to solve everything from strategy work, translation and configuration of the site, to PR work and planning of the launch – which the team behind Avionero takes as a challenge. For them, the voting feature also acts as an indication of Avioneros spread, providing the possibility to see where there is an awareness about the service, as well as finding out where the service is actually needed. But mainly it is a way for Avionero to stay close to their users by actually honoring the result of their users’ votes.
Avionero has pre launched a beta version in Sweden and Russia, and has also launched the site worldwide. Avionero has recently opened their A-round of 20 M SEK. The 4th of October 2018 Avionero will launch in Spain and at the same time they will release a new and highly requested feature.
Avionero was founded by Lars Kristensson, CEO and system architect, and Anton Tyulenev, Vice President and Product Designer, in November 2015. The team behind Avionero consists of 13 people located in Sweden, Moscow, Bolivia, and Denmark.
