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.
