Jet2.com and Jet2holidays team up with software developer Godel to support growth

Leading leisure airline and package holiday specialist, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has appointed software developer Godel to support its ongoing growth and development, by increasing and improving its software delivery capacity to provide the best user experience for customers and employees alike.

In recent weeks the company, which provides flights to leading European leisure destinations through Jet2.com and ATOL licenced package holidays through Jet2holidays, has announced plans to create 1,000 new jobs in the UK and has also taken delivery of the first of 30 brand new Boeing 737-800 aircraft. By working with Godel, the company will be able to develop software to support this ongoing growth, improving the search and booking experience for customers, and enhancing the company’s business intelligence, particularly around analytics and reporting.

Godel is working with the in-house team at Jet2, based in Leeds, to develop software that supports the company as it makes the search and booking experience as effortless and efficient as possible, across all platforms whether the customer uses a PC, tablet or mobile phone.

Godel will also integrate the company’s business intelligence with travel, finance, risk and safety compliance applications. The combined in-house and Godel team will work on a business travel application, a travel finance app that tracks payments made against suppliers’ travel bookings, and a risk and safety compliance application.

Godel has already delivered an allocations system that automates the billing for customers who bulk purchase seats, for example ski or cruise tours operators. The software development team has dealt with the complicated rules centred around billing and management of these bookings, and has successfully integrated it with other internal booking and account systems.

Andrew Aucott, General Manager, Business Intelligence at Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We are one of the fastest growing airlines in the UK, so the volume of changes to our software is increasing all the time and the demands are becoming greater. As we grow we require more software development, and Godel’s expertise supports our in-house development team to ensure that we provide the very best software to customers and our own teams alike.”
