The VOO Marketplace, developed by AVINOC, an aviation think tank with its own cryptocurrency token, solves the obvious structural, operational and business-related problems and thereby benefits the entire industry. Our ultra-efficient software provides charter brokers and private jet operators with the opportunity to close charter contracts within seconds. With our all-in-one VOO platform, we help to reduce time investment and costs, while increasing profit margins –along with transparency in all aspects of the entire charter process and secure financial transactions. This is how we aim to revolutionise business aviation and the entire industry. We look forward to exhibiting at the MEBAA Show 2022 together with AVINOC for the first time and presenting VOO with its digital marketplace to an international audience in the Middle East.”</span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:justify"><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">Also in attendance will be Mirai Flights/Emperor Aviation, sharing details of its cutting-edge portfolio of services, including private jet charter experiences, with the network of key industry professionals.</span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:justify"><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif"><span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif">Razvan Stefan CEO of Emperor Aviation added: “The pandemic proved to us all again that in every crisis there is an opportunity. One can clearly observe a shift in the pool of passengers who chose business jets as the main travel solution. Companies of every size are now using business aviation to transport executives, clients or specialists, to boost their competitive edge. Business aviation has been steadily growing, and it will continue to do so.
