Lion Air Group, the largest private airline carrier in Indonesia, is to enhance aviation safety management with software from Ideagen.
Ideagen Coruson, Ideagen’s enterprise cloud-based software, will be implemented as an organisation-wide safety, reporting and risk management solution.
The software will provide Lion Air Group with safety performance oversight across its six affiliated AOCs, delivering detailed performance data to quickly highlight potential safety weaknesses and risks, such as those linked to pilot fatigue or aircraft incidents.
Coruson will replace an older system, helping to strengthen the airline’s safety culture through functionality such as smart forms, GEO tagging and a mobile app for detailed reporting.
Jose Fernandez, Group Safety & Quality Director, said: “Ideagen Coruson will be our dedicated safety, quality, risk and reporting solution and it will provide us with excellent functionality to enhance a number of areas within the organisation, particularly our safety reporting and risk management.
“Our current system offers no easy way to gauge safety performance across any of our affiliates, resulting in difficulties when trying to assess overall airline performance. Coruson will change this.
“We are particularly excited to be working with Ideagen and its Coruson software, which will provide us with a central software solution for safety, risk and reporting and allow us to strengthen safety foundations ahead of planned future growth.”
Based in Jakarta, Lion Air Group flies to more than 183 routes across all corners of Indonesia from Sabang to Merauke as well as through several international countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, India, China and Saudi Arabia.
Currently in the middle of a period of rapid growth, Lion Air Group is planning to add to its 332-strong fleet of Boeing 747-400s, 737-800, 737-900 ER, 737 MAX 8, ATR 72-500, ATR 72-600, Airbus A330-300s, Airbus A320 CEO, Hawker 900 XP, EC 135-P2e, and Cesna 172. Mr Fernandez added: “Coruson is scalable and the main value we will see from the system is that scalability and ease of deployment across three countries and six AOCs.
“The number of services we will be able to offer will continue to grow because of the aviation market in Indonesia, which continues to grow rapidly. Ideagen Coruson will tie in nicely with our ambitious growth plan.”
