Flybig, India’s newest airline has selected LAMINAAR Aviation Infotech’s ARMS® application software to kickstart its operation. The ATR operator chose the ARMS® V2.5 unified platform for network planning, crew management, flight operations, flight dispatch, maintenance and engineering (M&E) and safety management. In addition, Flybig has also opted for the ARMS® mobility suite to enable digitalisation and promote paperless operations.
Captain Srinivas Rao, FRAeS, CEO of Flybig, says, “We chose ARMS® after their convincing demonstration of a new-age solution that we were looking for, and hoping it will keep our hands free from IT operations. Added to that, were the testimonials we received from their existing clients, and the fact that they have such a strong presence in India.”
LAMINAAR Aviation Infotech CEO, Vivek Sheorey says: “Being chosen by a significant new start-up airline is testimony to our products being agile and future ready. Airlines require real-time visibility and integration of data between flight operations. Our aim is to be Flybig’s trusted partner for setting up systems and processes with speed and agility to enable faster decision making. We congratulate Flybig for its successful launch and look forward to a long-term engagement.”
The ARMS® V2.5 offers flexibility and seamless interoperability between its subsystems – flight ops, M&E, crew, safety, quality and analytics – that plays a critical role in any airline’s integrated operations initiative. The tech stack is easy to deploy, maintain, add components and features that bring non-disruptive incremental changes benefitting airlines.
In its launch flight in December 2020, the Flybig flew from New Delhi to Shillong. On 3 January, the airline started serving destinations from its Indore hub. Currently with two ATR 72-500s, the airline plans to add additional ATR 72s along with Dornier 228s.
