Lynx Air is the first ultra low-cost carrier to implement IBS Software’s integrated operations and crew platform solution
Lynx Air, Canada’s new ultra-affordable airline, is partnering Kerala-based IBS Software, a SaaS solutions provider to the travel industry globally, to manage its flight operations. The Kerala software major’s iFlight digital platform will optimize Lynx’s flight and crew operations in keeping with the airline’s ultra low-cost business model. Lynx Air looks at making air travel accessible to all, with low fares, a fleet of brand-new Boeing 737 aircraft and great customer service.
IBS Software has said that its iFlight provides a fully digital, integrated operations platform, simplifying and automating processes and systems to deliver optimal efficiency, regulatory compliance and reduced operating costs. The modular design of iFlight will enable Lynx to scale operations effectively as the airline ramps up its fleet to 46 aircraft and expands its network reach over the coming years.
IBS Software’s iFlight implemented for Lynx Air in just 4 months
With the latest deal, Lynx Air joins more than 50 airlines around the globe that currently use the iFlight portfolio. Lynx is the first ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC) to implement the integrated operations and crew platform solution. As a new entrant into the Canadian aviation market, Lynx Air required a fast and seamless implementation process to support its ambitious launch program and timetable.
IBS Software has invested in iFlight to ensure the system can be rolled out quickly and efficiently. iFlight was implemented for Lynx in just four months, fully remotely and with minimal need for customization. The browser-based application can effectively scale to support operations and crew needs, regardless of size and business model.
The modular architecture allows airlines to add functionality as their operational complexity grows, helping them optimize resources, employ emerging technologies, and boost decision-making processes. All modules are architected to add value to airline operations and provide significant benefits, so return on the investment is clear for the airlines.
Lynx Air has made it known that its vision is to leverage technology to maximize the productivity and efficiency of operations, which will in turn enable the airline to offer ultra-affordable airfares to Canadians. The iFlight platform will enable us to deliver on that vision.
Quick and seamless integration done
The implementation process was quick and seamless and the IBS Software team were responsive and knowledgeable, the company’s CEO and President Merren McArthur pointed out. He added that Lynx Air was looking to continuing its partnership with IBS Software as the airline expands its network to make air travel accessible to all Canadians.
IBS Software believes that the deal with Lynx which is an ambitious airline comes as a testimony to the power of the company’s technology, and also its capability to deliver value to the fast-growing ULCC segment. Further to this, the Kerala based company expects strong demand for cloud-hosted operations and crew platforms from start-up and lean, digital airlines around the globe. The iFlight platform at Lynx proves that it is scalable for all sizes of airlines from start-ups to large complex airlines.
