Airshare and Portside come together for cloud-based platform
Portside began offering the whole aircraft management version of its platform to customers in May 2018. Since then, it has added operators, corporate departments and government customers in 25 countries.
Airshare operates a fractional fleet of Embraer Phenom 300 and Phenom 100 aircraft, along with several other aircraft in its whole aircraft management division.

Airshare has partnered with Portside in the development of a new cloud-based data and reporting platform. The platform, called Portside, had previously been built specifically for use by whole aircraft management companies and corporate flight departments, and Airshare was one of its first customers. Following the successful launch of this version, the two entities collaborated to create a new version of the platform for fractional customers.

Features of the platform currently include an integrated dashboard with key account information including contract summaries, current usage and monthly statements; a calendar for viewing upcoming and past flight activity; detailed information on customers' aircraft; annual and monthly usage statements; and viewing of scheduled and completed trips.

Future versions of the platform will include more robust accounting and billing and reporting functionality. Through the development agreement, Airshare will be offering the fractional version of Portside exclusively to its customers through the remainder of 2020.

“We are excited to offer Portside exclusively to our fractional owners and Embark jet card members,” says Andy Tretiak, chief marketing officer at Airshare. “Our whole aircraft management customers have been extremely pleased with the features and functionality of the platform. We worked closely with the development team at Portside to create a user experience that would greatly enhance the ability for our customers to maximise the usage of our programme.”

Portside, located in San Francisco, California, began offering the whole aircraft management version of its platform to European customers in May 2018. Since then, it has grown and added charter operators, corporate flight departments and government customers in over 25 countries. “The release of this new version of Portside for Airshare's fractional and jet card customers represents another major step in the growth of our company,” says Alek Vernitsky, co-founder and CEO of Portside. “We are developing new technology for both versions of our platform that will continue to expand the ability for customers to manage their private aviation programmes even more effectively.”
