Ryanair is Europe's number one airline, carrying 130 million customers per year on more than 1,800 flights
Ryanair, Europe’s No 1 airline, has implemented a new safety and security management system developed by software firm Ideagen.
Ideagen Coruson, a cloud-based software product, has been rolled out across Ryanair’s operations to further enhance their safety reporting and risk identification processes and to assist the airline in managing regulatory compliance.
Coruson simplifies identification, collection, collation and analysis of all information on safety and security related events thus enhancing risk management processes across Ryanair’s Safety, Security, Flight Operations, Ground Operations, Engineering, Inflight and Health & Safety Departments.
Through this project, Ryanair has become the first airline in Ireland to submit electronic ECCAIR reports in E5X format to the Irish Aviation Authority, utilising Coruson’s smart form functionality.
David Hornsby, Ideagen’s CEO, said Coruson would be used by more than 10,000 Ryanair employees.
He said: “We are delighted to have won this significant contract with Ryanair which will see Ideagen provide an electronic safety and security management system, Ideagen Coruson.
“Coruson will be used by more than 10,000 Ryanair employees as part of this project, which will further enhance safety and security processes and ease compliance to the requirements of national and international aviation authorities.”
Mr Hornsby added: “This is a significant project for Ideagen and we are delighted we have delivered Coruson to this leading tier one airline.
“The project significantly strengthens Ideagen’s position in the aviation safety sector. We continue to see strong new business demand for our software and with 10% of the tier one market currently using our products, we are confident of further extensive growth in this particular area.”
Ryanair is Europe's favourite airline, carrying 130m customers p.a. on more than 1,800 daily flights from 86 bases. The airline connects over 200 destinations in 34 countries on a fleet of over 400 Boeing 737 aircraft. With a further 300 Boeing 737's on order, it will enable Ryanair to lower fares and grow traffic to 200m p.a. by 2024.
Ryanair has a team of more than 1,200 highly skilled aviation professionals delivering Europe's number one on-time performance, and an industry leading 32-year safety record.

“The introduction of Ideagen Coruson will provide us with a further opportunity to capture and analyse safety and security data in real time, quickly and efficiently and help to ensure effective risk mitigation is put in place.
“We are delighted to be working with Ideagen and implementing Coruson which will make our reporting systems more effective and will assist us in maintaining, and continuously improving, our safety and security performance.”
