Edit labels

By clicking you can open a pop-up window, where it is possible to add or delete labels available in the contacts' profiles. If you delete a label, it will be removed from all the contacts.

New Contact

Adding new Company
Adding new Person

In order to add a new contact press button.

A pop-up window will appear where the type of contact can be selected between:

  • Company
  • Person

Depending on the selection, each of the types contains different tabs where the details can be inserted.

In order to edit the existing contact, simply click on the contact and the editing pop-up window will display.

The contact details in the editing window are the same as in the 'New contact' window.

The formats for inserting dates recognized by Leon are, dd-mm-yyyy, dd/mm/yyyy

Operator base

This feature only applies to operators that have more than one base. For the operators with one base only this functionality will not apply.

Bases can be defined in General Settings section.

Once the bases are added, it is possible to assign one to a Client.

If the base is assigned to a Client, the trip requested by this particular Client will automatically be assigned to the Client's base.

It is also possible to assign or change the original base, including the base initially assigned to a Client, without having to assign a specific user.

If you select a particular base in the operator selection dropdown (top-right corner of Leon), the Requests/Quotes list will only display the requests assigned to this particular base.

Handling Requests per Client

It is possible to assign a default handling agent to a Client in Leon.

In order to assign a Handling Agent to a Client, you need to select the Agent(s) in the 'Preferred handling agent' box.

Handling agent can be searched by using:

  • Airport ICAO/IATA/Custom code
  • Handler Name
  • Combination of 'Airport code - Handler name'

It is possible to assign multiple Handling Agents at different Airports to one Client.

Once the Handler is assigned, it will appear as a tag below the 'Preferred handling agent' selection box:

Only one Handler per airport can be assigned to a Client. Assigning second Handling Agent will replace already assigned Handler.

Once the Handler is assigned, it will auto-populate in the OPS checklist when the trip is booked.

Handler assigned to the Client has higher priority than the Handling Agent selected as preferred in the Airport Directory. This means that the Handler assigned to the Client will overwrite the preferred Handler from 'AD' upon booking the trip from Sales.

Exclusion zones

Exclusion zones are the countries over which the aircraft should not be flying.

The exclusion zones can be indicated in the Client profile - 'Exclusion zones' box as per below. Simply start to insert the country name and select it from the dropdown list.

Once the exclusion zones are selected, the flight time calculations in the 'Requests/Quotes' section ('Calculate Flight Time' option) will take these zones into consideration.

Permanently delete & anonymize data

Permanently delete and anonymize data actions

This functionality is created as part of the process of adhering to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (General Data Protection Regulation).

  2. Select the 'Permanently delete & anonymize data' option and click 'YES'
  3. In the 'Permanently delete contact confirmation' window, confirm the anonymization of the user by clicking on YES
