Life House | March 20, 2023
Tech-enabled hotel management company, Life House, has announced the addition of two more properties in Mexico to its growing portfolio of 80+ independent hotels.
The two properties are Faisano Nomadas in Aldea Zama and The Carmen in Playa Del Carmen. With these hotels, Life House is now managing five independent hotels in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.
The Carmen is a 37-room hotel in the heart of Playa Del Carmen that is catered to adult vacations and is located directly on the beach. Built in 2017, the hotel features stunning views of the Caribbean from its rooftop bar and lounge, Deck5, and also hosts an Italian restaurant, La Famiglia, on the ground floor. The Owner is a long-time Denver-based developer. Ownership was very excited to have Life House take the reins given their existing presence in the Playa Market.
“We selected Life House for the promise of its advanced tech stack and the opportunity for shared services with their other hotels,” said the Owner of The Carmen. “We expect to see many improvements to The Carmen’s operations and profitability with this new partnership.”
Faisano Nomadas is a 24-room hotel in the heart of Aldea Zama. It was designed not just as a hotel, but as a destination itself, complete with a resort-style pool and a bar offering food and drinks concepted uniquely for the hotel. Francisco Mendoza and Gustavo Acosta, the developers of Faisano Nomadas, are highly experienced hotel owners and strategic growth partners for Life House in Mexico.
Francisco Mendoza shared, “Working with Life House has been really exciting. They have been supporting our project with all their experience and knowledge as we are not Hotel operators - we are just investors trying to develop a profitable business with a great customer experience for our guests. Life House has experienced specialists in all operating areas who are guiding us in this journey and giving us the structure needed in order to achieve our goals.”
Life House, founded in 2017, is uniquely positioned to manage smaller, leisure-oriented hotels and resorts across Mexico. Life House provides institutional-quality hotel management and branding services focused on profitability, ease, and long-term real estate value. They offer best-in-class hotel operations that are powered by their robust operational systems and proprietary technology that consistently drives 2x higher NOI, 40% higher net revenues, and all with a very lean on-site staffing model. Life House is therefore seeing high demand for its management platform throughout Mexico and is targeting the region as a strategic area of growth.
“We are excited to partner with Messrs. Mendoza & Acosta and the owner of The Carmen on their special hotels and forward thinking approach,” said Rami Zeidan, the Founder & CEO of Life House. “Ever since we entered the market in 2020, we have seen how many great independent hotels are underserved and we’re looking forward to helping small & medium indie hotels throughout the country in the near future.”

Cirium | January 05, 2023
Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance rankings examine the world's top airports and airlines. This study honors the aviation industry's on-time performance.
Cirium, a global aviation analytics leader, named Azul Airlines the best on-time airline for 2022. This week, the Cirium 2022 On-Time Performance Review came out. It is the world's standard for how well airlines and airports do.
Last year, many airports and airlines had trouble with delays, disruptions, and insufficient resources. North America and Europe were significantly affected. However, Asia-Pacific is trying to break free from COVID's grip. As a result, many airports and airlines performed well despite the weather.
Delta Air Lines won the Cirium Platinum Award for operational excellence for the second consecutive year. This award considers an airline's on-time record, operational complexity, and passenger flight disruption handling.
Regional champions were Delta in North America, Thai AirAsia in Asia Pacific, Oman Air in the Middle East and Africa, Azul in Latin America, and Iberia in Europe. Haneda Airport turned out to be the world's best airport. An airport's departure time is considered on time if it's within 15 minutes.
Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance Review's top airlines and airports deserve praise for ramping up operations quickly after a pause. Delta Air Lines performed well in Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance Review, bringing passengers to their destinations on time, while the sector improved in 2022.
In 2022, airlines struggled to predict demand. Throughout the pandemic, they were discontented. Once the demand picked up, it reversed course in the face of new COVID variants. Last year, when the recovery started, airlines, airports, air navigation providers, and other parties were short on staff and resources. Delayed flights also caused problems. As the industry added staff, operations improved, and 2023 looks promising for the aviation industry.

It aids in the logical decision-making of travel agencies, aircraft producers, airports, airlines, and financial institutions, influencing the future of the travel industry while boosting revenues and enhancing client experiences.
