Air Nostrum, the leading regional aviation company in Spain, is to work with UK-based global software firm Ideagen in a project that will enhance safety, quality and risk management across the organisation.
The Valencia-based company, which caters for 74,000 flights and 4.3 million passengers per year, is the latest aviation organisation to implement Ideagen’s Coruson software.
Coruson is an enterprise cloud software application that will provide Air Nostrum with complete control, visibility and real-time reporting of every detail and aspect of safety and operational risk.
It is currently used by some of the largest aviation organisations in the world such as British Airways, Air Asia and Ryanair.
The software will be adopted by Air Nostrum as well as its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and MRO companies such as Medops, Hibernian, PLYSA, TAC, Flyest, Paranair and ANTA with more than 1000 users.
Fermin Tirado, Chief Maintenance Officer, Air Nostrum, said: “This is an innovative software project with Ideagen which will help to transform and ultimately enhance our quality, safety and risk management operations.”
Mario Franco, Director IT, Air Nostrum, said: “Both Air Nostrum and Ideagen are ambitious leaders in their respective fields and we are looking forward to seeing the impact that Ideagen’s expertise and software product in the form of Coruson has on the our business.
“We are very pleased to be working alongside Ideagen and its Coruson software in this project.”
Air Nostrum currently operates as a franchise of Iberia, which is under the International Airlines Group (IAG) umbrella, and employs more than 1,450 employees.
As part of the project with Ideagen, Coruson will enable Air Nostrum to carry-out and have visibility over;
- Audit assurance activities
- Reports and investigations including those aligned with EASA 376
- Proactive risk management via bowtie modelling of risks
- Safety performance oversights via dashboards and safety performance indicators (SPIs)
Steven Cespedes, Ideagen’s Head of Aviation, said: “Ideagen is a global leader in providing safety, quality, risk and performance management software to the aviation industry and currently has over 300 customers across the globe using our products.
“We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with Air Nostrum in relation to their safety, quality and risk management solution in what is a very exciting time for the company and the product globally.”
Mr Cespedes added: “This project cements our standing in the global aviation industry and we look forward to helping Air Nostrum achieve operational excellence throughout all aspects of their safety, quality and risk management operations.”
