IBS signs deal with Malaysia Airlines

Staff Reporter

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Malaysia Airlines has entered into a long term contract with IBS Software, a leading supplier of IT solutions for the global travel, transportation and logistics industry, for deploying its crew management system, AvientCrew.

The deal, set to provide the airline with increased efficiency and reduced cost of operation, was signed in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday. The single integrated solution from IBS will replace the two different crew management systems that are currently being used to manage the airlines’ technical crew and cabin crew rosters.

While the current system uses a combination of manual and IT-based systems, the new system from IBS will automate the entire crew management and tracking process.

The AvientCrew will optimise crew utilisation, improve crew productivity, reduce disruption costs and streamline administrative processes and will be fully implemented in four phases over the next two years.

This solution is already being used by six major airlines, including Emirates, Jet Airways and Cathay Pacific among others.

“The operational agility and productivity of the airline’s crew will be further enhanced with the implementation of AvientCrew” said V.K. Mathews, Chairman and CEO of IBS Group.

IBS had earlier this year entered into an agreement with MASholidays, the travel and leisure arm, owned and managed by Malaysia Airlines, for implementing its iFly Tour solution.
