Why Leon?

“At first I had a concern about Leon’s capability to meet our needs as it is mostly used for business aviation. Surprisingly I was wrong as in the past few years Leon made lots of improvements in their scheduling and crewing modules. And now it can support charter or scheduled operator’s needs," states Martynas Reichertas, Head of OCC and Ground Operations of Heston Airlines.

He continues, "I was amazed at how flexible and simple the user interface is. With minimum training and basic knowledge, users can make multiple system modifications to meet their expectations, not even mentioning the fast and friendly customer support. To sum up, I have been working with various scheduling systems for the past 7 years and can attest that Leon brings the best price and quality ratio in today’s market!”

What partnering with Leon means?

For start-ups and business operators, it is important to choose the right software for their operational needs. According to Mr Martynas Reichertas, here are several factors that they looked at which helped them decide on Leon.

Leon has a very effective implementation process supported by a highly efficient support team that makes the implementation both simple and fast. Additionally, Leon has an easy-to-use help centre with online manual and video tutorials. 

A big plus is the great reporting system found in Leon as well as an easy and user-friendly interface. Finally, Leon is a cost-effective solution for start-up operators where you only pay for active aircraft.

It also helps that the team at Heston Airlines had worked on multiple scheduling platforms in the past. This resulted in some members of the team having previous experience working with Leon so the training went smoothly and with a smile.
