ARMS® Flight Planning goes live at Jambojet
September 20, 2022 - Nairobi / Singapore
The ARMS® Flight Planning System went live at Kenya’s Jambojet on 20 Sep 2022, just as was planned. Newsworthy is the fact that the entire implementation was conducted remotely by project teams distributed over 10 Laminaar headcounts and an equal number at Jambojet. None having to move from their respective home stations, literally and figuratively.
This is not a first for team Laminaar pulling off a 100% remote implementation. The first time one was in 2020 during the peak of the Covid pandemic, when ARMS® was remotely implemented at Korea’s JinAir. Read more here
A typical implementation is a complex sequence of detailed activities, starting with network and infrastructure set-up including hardware and software installations, application load testing, user training and certifications, and the final acceptance test, which, among meeting other rigorous criteria has to also perform successfully in a live or production environment. All of this was conducted with clockwork precision by a project team leader in Singapore and teams distributed across Bangalore, Mumbai and the client team members in Nairobi.
The result at Jambojet was visible in the smiles of satisfaction when the first flight using the ARMS® Flight Planning application took off and landed successfully on the 20 Sep 2022.
Jambojet decided on ARMS® in April 2022 to fully automate their flight planning capabilities and bring in productivity savings by helping unify flight ops and fuel policies across its operations. The ARMS® Flight Planning system brings together real-time information on a number of key variables – including weather, air space restrictions, aircraft performance and schedule information – and then calculates the most optimal flight route.
Jambojet, a brand of Kenya Airways, is Kenya’s first low-cost airline. The airline operates 8 destinations from its hub in Nairobi – Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu, Malindi, Ukunda (Diani), Lamu, and Goma in Eastern DRC; and 3 routes from its secondary hub in Mombasa to Kisumu, Eldoret, and Lamu. It also handles Cargo operations across all its routes. Jambojet aims to revolutionize travel by opening up the skies for all to fly for less and provide affordable air travel because flying is for everyone.
