Ideagen, the provider of safety management software to the aviation industry, has secured a contract with Cobalt, a new low-cost carrier in Cyprus. The airline will adopt Ideagen’s Q-Pulse safety management software, in order to control and manage its compliance, risk management and electronic documentation systems.
Andrew Pyne, CEO of Cobalt, highlighted: “We are establishing a low cost airline with a twist: one that will develop hub based operations and operate both regional and long haul routes.
“Safety and security are key and current concerns for the travelling public. Our aim has been to develop a structure and a management system that puts safety at the core of everything that we do as an airline.
“After a thorough review of the market, we selected Q-Pulse due to its comprehensive range of safety, quality and risk modules that will underpin our Management System implementation. We were particularly impressed with the way that the Q-Pulse system can be adapted to meet our specific organisational and safety risk profiles.”
Steven Cespedes, Ideagen's Head of Aviation, added: “Q-Pulse is the leading aviation safety management software product, used by over 300 airlines across the globe. This is an extremely exciting project for us, and we are looking forward to working closely with Cobalt and supporting their goal of becoming a key low cost air carrier for Europe and further afield.”
Cobalt plans to launch services to Greece in June and aims at connecting European points with the Middle East, Africa and, ultimately, Asia, through its Larnaca home base.
With a key focus on outcome-based safety management, the airline will adopt Ideagen’s Q-Pulse safety management software to control and manage its compliance, risk management and electronic documentation systems.
