February 9, 2021 - NEW DELHI/SINGAPORE
Flybig, India’s newest airline, has selected LAMINAAR Aviation Infotech’s ARMS® application software suite to kickstart their operations.
The ATR operator chose ARMS® V2.5 for network planning, crew management, flight operations, flight dispatch, maintenance & engineering and safety management. In addition, the airline has taken the ARMS® mobility suite to enable digitalization and promote paperless operations.
Capt 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. We congratulate Flybig for its successful launch and wish the airline and the communities it serves a future of prosperity.”
In its launch flight in December 2020, the airline flew from New Delhi to Shillong in Meghalaya, a state in the northeast of India. On 3rd January 2021, the airline started serving destinations from its other hub Indore, in the west-central part of the country. Currently with two ATR 72-500s, the airline plans to add more ATR 72s as well as Dornier 228s.
