Leadership Team

Our dedicated team of experienced technologists and travel professionals are leaders in their respective fields.

Calrom was established in 2007 and its head office is in Wilmslow, Cheshire, UK. Following on from expansion, Calrom has opened up training, development and support offices in Manchester, Madrid and Sydney, and employs over 60 staff worldwide.

Calrom has a proven record of delivering innovative solutions to complex business challenges within the airline industry. Calrom designs, develops, delivers and supports a range of market specific booking engines. Calrom’s systems enable our partners and customers to realise cost savings, grow sales & revenue, expand service availability, improve customer service, and gain greater control over their customer relationships. All systems are developed in-house to provide customers with maximum agility and to protect the IPR. 

Our sister company, Lime Management was established in 2003 as an exclusive UK Inclusive Tour distribution solution to support British Airways strategically.  As the relationship between Lime Management and British Airways evolved, the need for new, cost effective systems to deliver market specific services grew. Calrom was established to create and develop these solutions, and continues to develop and support all of Lime Management’s systems. 

In 2009 Aviate Management, the third company in the group, was established as a trade only flight sales specialist offering nett leisure fares on behalf of a range of airlines. Following the success of its Inclusive Tour service Aviate Management launched Aviate Groups, Aviate Cruise and Aviate Ticketing Services. Aviate currently has relationships with more than 30 of the world’s leading airlines, and as with Lime Management, Calrom develops and supports all of Aviate Management’s systems.

We utilise the latest technology tools and methods, such as modern JavaScript frameworks, responsive design virtualisation, automated testing, continuous integration, automated deployment, distributed version control, and Agile process management to deliver a highly-decoupled service based architecture. 

We understand the importance of training and keeping our staff up to date on all of our systems, technologies, and processes.
