As a frequent world traveler, Kquika founder and CEO Victor Oribamise has experienced numerous delays and flight cancellations. Flying from his native Nigeria to the United States, he knows how much a single disruption can change travel plans.
Now, he is on a mission to eliminate flight delays for good.
With Kquika, Oribamise has developed an application poised to transform a billion-dollar industry. With airlines having to cut costs while also trying to improve the quality of the flying experience, Kquika is the rare tool that promises to do both.
Leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning, Kquika predicts flight delays and disruptions caused by mechanical failures or weather with 95% accuracy. Best of all, those updates are sent to airline companies and customers in real-time, automatically rebooking passengers into the next available flight.
As a result, travelers will no longer find themselves stranded in airports waiting to board the next available flight to continue their journey. With Kquika every part of the passenger experience is completed with a streamlined process that eliminates long waits, confusion, and frustration.
Kquika has the potential to save airlines millions of dollars in flight delays while also allowing them to devote more resources to customer-centric initiatives. Because Kquika can automatically notify and rebook passengers, there is less need for large customer service desks, giving airlines the freedom to develop new services that best meet the needs of the modern traveler.
“In the past year alone, there have been nearly 50,000 canceled or delayed flights,” Oribamise explains. “That translates into a lot of money for the passengers and the airlines. So, we are alleviating the pain for everybody.”
Rather than trying to overhaul the airline industry, Oribamise searched for a way to partner with them, augmenting their existing systems and enabling them to better serve travelers throughout the world. Kquika works seamlessly with airlines, providing automated updates for the passengers and booking new flights instantaneously.
On the mechanical side, it also allows airlines to discover flight problems before they occur – a breakthrough that could forever change the industry. It is a feature that will be introduced in Kquika next update, and one that could make discovering and responding to mechanical problems as common as checking the gauges on your own car.
“As a car owner, you can receive an alert on your phone to check your rear tire for air pressure,” Oribamise says. “We are building technology that will alert the airline that something is wrong with the plane before it happens.”
This technology will not only make travel more efficient, but it will also make every plane safer to fly. In addition, proactive alerts will save airlines millions of dollars in mechanical repairs.
With plans to expand their services throughout North America, followed by Europe and Africa, Kquika could soon become a global innovator within the airline industry. And as Oribamise says, that will mean a greater experience for travelers around the world.
“We believe it is possible to scale quickly in this market,” Oribamise says. “Because when passengers know there is a service out there that can actually help them, technology that can potentially save them thousands of dollars on tickets, they are going to want that. And airline enterprises will want to offer it.”
