We are a New Zealand based software development company with a reputation as an innovator of high-performance airline operations management tools. We have decades of experience developing industry-leading solutions for airline operations. We continually receive praise from our clients for our Legendary Service, something we don’t take for granted, and strive to achieve day-to-day.

The game has changed for airlines, and merlot.aero has revolutionised airline technology to ensure your airline is profitable, responsive and competitive.

merlot.aero’s products are deployed via a true cloud-computing solution. The solution combines Software as a Service (Saas) principles for real-time data and web services enabled applications which can be deployed over a private or public cloud platform offering true cloud reliability and uptime performance.

The applications within the merlot.aero suite cover compliance management as well as many facets of a standard airline operation – from crew planning and management, aircraft planning and management to maintaining interaction with the crew via the internet and a PDA. We have also developed an aircraft fuel usage optimisation module and a weight and balance module to name a few.

From start-up airlines to established carriers, low cost to full service, cargo to RPT, international to domestic, we turn airlines into high performance businesses.

If you’re looking to put your airline on track to ensure its preparedness for the long term, then look no further than merlot.aero, for a game changing technology solution built on integration, scalability, performance and flexibility. Call merlot.aero today.
