Pricing strategy and base airports¶
On the page Configure > General (Admin role) in the Options section, you can choose between 3 pricing modes:
If all your aircraft of the same type are based on the same airport and have a similar pricing, you should use “Pricing by aircraft type only”. The type’s base is set on the page Pricing > Base airports. If you choose several airport bases, OpenJet 360 will choose the most appropriate one, reducing empty legs.
If your aircrafts of same type are located at different airports, you have two choices:
Pricing by aircraft type only: OpenJet 360 will automatically choose the aircraft by minimizing empty legs.
Pricing by tail number only: you have to choose a tail number before making a quotation.
If you choose “Pricing by type and tail number”, you will be able to have both, see pricing profiles for more details.
Just below, you may choose flight time rounding: upper 5 minutes, lower 5 minutes or nearest 5 minutes.
Flight time calculations¶
OpenJet automatically calculates flight times based on direct route between two airports. Aircraft performances can be set for each type of your company. See Manage your Fleet.
If you are not satisfied with the flight time between two airports, you can manually set the flight time using the page Pricing > Manual Flight Time List.
On the page Pricing > Pricing Profiles, you can create, edit and manage pricing profiles. Click on a profile to edit it.
Copy from profile¶
You can copy another profile content to this current profile.
You can set a name for your current pricing profile. You can add destination channels for the current profile:
B2B is for reservations created from your dedicated OpenJet environment. Note that you can have more than one profile for this channel, enabling to switch pricing profiles in one click in reservations.
B2C is for reservations made directly by End customers on Openjet.com
Agency is for reservations from a third party : GDS (like Amadeus), Travel agencies, Hotels and Concierges.
The default for this channel option enables to use this profile at reservation creation.
Prices in profiles: this option determines if the prices shown in the profile include taxes or if the tax is put on top.
There are four options to show/hide additional services and empty legs from your quotation and invoice.
You may choose here how you wish to round your prices and set the rounding precision.
Fixed reservation fee¶
This fee will be counted once per quotation.
You can choose to create your pricing for each tail number or for each model of aircraft by enabling the option on the chosen line.
You need to enter commercial flight price, empty leg price per minute, price per seat (in case of per seat reservation) and set the minimum flight time per leg.
Fixed leg fee¶
This fee will apply once for any revenue leg and empty leg if selected.
This fee will apply for any commenced day (based on departure local time). You have the choice to apply a buffer time, if you don’t want flight arriving early in the morning to be charged a second day.
Airport average price¶
This fee covers landing and FBO fee. It applies for each landing, unless specified in airport exceptions.
Enter here the price for an airport for which you don’t want the average price to apply.
Parking per hour fee¶
You can apply an hourly parking fee on an airport. OpenJet calculates the schedules time on ground and applies the fee hourly. Every started hour is due.
Wait time fee¶
OpenJet calculates the time spent on ground within the reservation and applies this fee hourly. Every started hour is due.
This fee covers the catering or any taxe which is due per passenger. Enter the amount and the first passenger to be charged.
Empty leg price¶
Choose here how OpenJet calculates the empty legs:
No empty Leg
Simple: for ‘A-B’ trip, create the ‘B-A’ corresponding empty flight
Base: Create empty legs from/to base before and after commercial leg
Enter here the price for an overnight and the maximum allowed overnights. If the number of overnights is exceeded, empty legs back and from base will be charged.
Immobilisation step one/two¶
If the time on ground exceed the step, the fee will be apply.
Pricing profile calendar¶
Pricing profile period calendar¶
On the page Pricing > Pricing profile period calendar, you can create, edit and manage pricing profile calendar. This will allow to define the right default pricing profile to be used for a reservation based on a calendar:
You can simply edit it by clicking on a day of the calendar and create the desired period.
Pricing profile intervals¶
On the page Pricing > Fixed leg prices, you can create, edit and manage pricing profile intervals. This will allow to define a specific pricing profile depending on the interval between the date of the reservation and the date of the first flight requested by this reservation.
NB: This configuration will override pricing profile calendar configuration
On this example, the pricing profile “High DC” will be applied for each reservation where the first flight will occur within 3 days next to the reservation creation.
Fixed leg prices¶
On the page Pricing > Fixed leg prices, you can create, edit and manage Fixed leg prices. This will define a fix price for a specific trip/sector.
As soon as this trip/sector will be requested, this price will be applied overriding the pricing profile configurations
It is possible to assign this fixed price only to a specific airplane or airplane type and for a specific pricing profile.
It is also possible to decide whether this configuration will be applied for a round trip. e.g. Paris->Berlin AND Berlin->Paris. This will apply the same price on both flights without having to setup a specific fixed leg price for the return route.
It is possible to specify an additional fee on the return flight based on the interval between this return flight and the initial flight. You can set as many interval as you need.
On this example, a 700€ fee will be applied to the return flight if this flight is set 2 days after the first flight. From 4 days, this 700€ fee will increase to 1000€.
