About Us



We’re a new company founded by Manchester Airport Group.


Core to our growth strategy is major expansion both in terms of products and services within CAVU. The Technology strategy will play a major part in this as we look to build out a single platform, capable of supporting global scale. We’re looking for great people to build, support and evolve our new platform.

What we can tell you is we’re busy taking knowledge gained from multiple experienced airport services companies and using it to build a market lead.



Our Journey:



Our unrivalled knowledge of the passenger comes from our origins. Formed from the union of MAGO, MAG USA and our network of direct-to-consumer brands - who together drive market leading passenger spend for airports across the world - we have combined our resources to address evolving passenger needs today and exceed them as we move forward into tomorrow.


Pre-book, online or in the airport, our solutions make travel more seamless and enjoyable for passengers and more profitable for our clients and partners.






Our name is taken from the aviation, meteorology term, ‘Ceiling And Visibility Unlimited’ (CAVU), which designates the perfect flying condition, where the ceiling is more than 10,000ft and the visibility is more than ten miles.
