Aviation tech start-up Moonware has successfully closed a $7m seed round, following product launches with British Airways and dnata at JFK and AeroCharter at LAX

The new funding was co-led by venture capital firms Third Prime and Zero Infinity Partners, with participation from The House Fund, Lorimer Ventures, and strategic private investors.

According to Moonware, its flagship product, HALO, represents a new approach to ground handling by offering a single, comprehensive operating picture. The software consolidates various aspects of ground operations into one platform, enabling increased awareness and operational efficiency on the ramp. Unlike traditional systems that depend on multiple legacy tools, HALO streamlines process management and decision-making for airlines. This ultimately delivers faster turnarounds, minimised delays, and higher flight throughput.

“Aviation ground operations stand at a critical juncture for necessary technological transformation, with Moonware leading the charge. This new funding round serves as great validation of our vision to modernise the sector and allows us to catalyse a new era of efficiency and innovation for the industry,” said Moonware CEO Javier Vidal.

Moonware will use the funding to bolster its R&D efforts and expand its team.
