Drivania reports 164% increase in U.S. services in 2016

The aviation community moves away from traditional limousine companies in favor of access to chauffeurs through global technological solutions

Posted on 31-01-2017

Global chauffeured transportation network Drivania has reported 2016 as its best year ever in North America. Since launching the first U.S. office in San Francisco in September 2011, Drivania has become a new alternative to conventional local limousine operators.  The company provides easy access to professional chauffeurs thanks to its new online tech solutions, allowing private jet operators, air charter brokers and international flight support companies to book their preferred chauffeurs in over 1,000 airports worldwide.

Frank Davidson, SVP Global Sales says “In 2016, the number of ground transportation bookings grew by 164% across the Drivania USA network compared to 2015.  The Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) has been an astounding 91% in the last four years.”  Over 85% of Drivania USA new customers came from the private aviation community based in Florida, California, Texas and New York, favoring its online booking platform model and real-time communication systems to help them drive productivity and do business worldwide. The overall coverage in the U.S. is 260 cities.

Drivania’s worldwide network provides customers access to chauffeured services in a matter of minutes. In popular destinations such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, London, Paris, Frankfurt, Madrid and Milan, the prior reservation time can go as low as 30 minutes before pickup, keeping the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Chairman and Founder Gerard Martret says: “We are very grateful to our U.S. customers for the warm welcome the Drivania business model has received. When we launched our U.S. office five years ago, we knew how big of a challenge that was, as North America is the largest and most mature chauffeured transportation market in the world. Today we feel encouraged to continue providing better technology and to maintain our customer service at the highest standards.”
