universal and drivania to form new ground transportation joint venture

July 10, 2019

Global mission management provider, Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc., and private transportation company, Drivania Chauffeurs, have formed a new joint-venture. Under this agreement, Universal’s ground transportation business, formally under Universal Private Transport, will combine with Drivania’s business aviation division, Drivania Bizav, to create a new ground transportation company focused on the business aviation industry.

Universal Private Transport was launched by Universal in 2016 to address the unmet need to better integrate crew and VIP ground transportation into the overall planning and delivery logistics of a mission – reducing 4th party handoffs, reducing scheduling errors with ground transportation providers, and improving response times for changes.

“The combination of Universal’s and Drivania Bizav’s networks will provide customers an expanded chauffeur and vehicle network – guaranteed by the Universal-Drivania Quality Process – in addition to a better digital experience, which includes the Drivania’s online booking platform an online client portal to manage bookings, faster booking response times and streamlined notifications, all supported by a dedicated team with private aviation expertise and integrated with Universal® Trip Support Services,” said Greg Evans, Universal Weather and Aviation Chairman.
