When should I post a flexible flight?

When adding a flight, you have two options in terms of date type :
Flexible dates: If you are able to do this flight on a regular basis, then choose flexible dates and fill in what days you are usually available. You will always have the possibility thereafter to accept or decline the passengers’ request. They can only book the flight on your selected availability days, but you can also use your availability calendar to block off certain dates you can't fly too. This option maximises your chances of booking requests. 

Fixed date: This is the best option if you already know you will be doing this flight on a specific date and that you want to offer seats on your plane. This flight will disappear from your profile after its execution date.
Once the date type has been selected, you can choose a deadline after which you no longer wish to receive booking requests for the flight being created. You can choose to take booking requests until the last moment one week before the flight. Keep in mind that once a booking request has been made, you have 48 hours to respond before it expires.

If you wish to use the flexible dates option, we encourage you to have a look at our article which explains how to use your Wingly calendar here.
If you have any questions, you can contact us directly at tower@wingly.io or by phone on +447708405306. We are available from Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 17:30.
