Vietjet Air becomes latest airline to enhance aviation safety management with Ideagen
Software firm Ideagen will help the Vietnamese airline implement its Coruson software
Vietjet Air, Vietnam’s international new-age airline, is to enhance aviation safety management with software from 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 Vietjet Air – which carries out 400 flights daily – with safety performance oversight across its operations, delivering detailed performance data to quickly highlight potential safety weaknesses and risks, such as those linked to pilot fatigue or aircraft incidents.
Coruson will strengthen the airline’s safety culture through functionality such as smart forms, GEO tagging and a mobile app for detailed reporting.
Vice President To Viet Thang at Vietjet Air, said: “Coruson will enhance a number of areas within the organisation, particularly our safety reporting and risk management.
“It will become our dedicated safety, quality, risk, and reporting solution and it will provide us with excellent functionality to truly take our approach to aviation safety management to the next level.
“We are very excited to be working with Ideagen and its Coruson software, both of which have an outstanding reputation across the global aviation industry. Coruson will play a huge part in how we manage safety, risk, and reporting going forward and will also be a key solution in helping us strengthen our safety foundations ahead of planned future growth.”
