MarketPlace was launched by leading aviation services company RocketRoute, with support from Air BP, last May. This February, newly-formed investment vehicle Alyssum Group acquired RocketRoute as part of its long-term strategy to transform the entire private aviation industry. In time, Alyssum Group, owner of jet charter provider Victor, intends to integrate MarketPlace into a connected digital ecosystem that will service all within private and business aviation – this includes customers, charter brokers, operators and suppliers.
