International Airlines Group plans to adopt a new safety and risk management software across its airlines, cargo operators and MROs to allow its staff to report concerns via a mobile application. By being mobile, IAG hopes its staff will report safety concerns quicker, which should improve the data accuracy and help mitigate risks faster.
IAG, the holding company for Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia and Vueling, signed a contract with Ideagen to provide its Coruson, a SaaS (software as a service) product, across the airline group’s companies.
“We encourage our staff to highlight any safety or security issues which concern them, and being able to do this on the move means we will get accounts of incidents quickly and more accurately so that we can fully investigate, and work to mitigate risks,” says Raghbir Pattar, COO of IAG Global Business Services.
IAG and Ideagen announced the contract on March 27. The companies did not comment on the contract value or project implementation timetable.
The HAECO Group also uses Coruson as part of its safety program.
