LONDON – Tata Group airline Air India has selected UK based Ideagen’s enterprise cloud software application, Coruson, to further enhance end-to-end aviation safety management. The package will support real time intelligence, reporting and status of in-flight incidents.
The safety data software application, which will be online with effect from May 1, 2023, will weed out the requirement of paperwork to a large extent and ensure automated processes relay critical information to key personnel and authorities without delay.
This will also lead to timely action. Air India is separately engaged in procuring iPads for pilots and crew members and when introduced, Coruson will also be available on these devices as well.
Air India has always been according top priority to safety of its passengers and crew, and this tie-up with Coruson is another step in that direction.
Ideagen software covers all aspects of risk, giving the airline full visibility of safety data from maintenance of the aircraft through to cabin crew checks on board.
It will provide Air India complete visibility across the airline’s entire organisation, allowing it to access the latest data and use this to spot and mitigate potential risks, thereby enhancing safety of operations.
Commenting on the development, Henry Donohoe, Head of Safety, Security and Quality, Air India, said,
“We are going for a significant and substantial upgrade of our existing systems and processes to ensure seamless flow of intelligence and data on a real time basis. Coruson is trusted by aviation industry globally for risk mitigation, auditing and training.”
“It’s induction will go a long way in enhancing our capabilities for the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew, particularly at a time when Air India is rapidly expanding its network on both national and international routes.”
