Flybe has selected Bytron Aviation Systems as their flight operations software provider.
As a web-based software and app business, the UK-based company will provide their flagship software called skybook to Flybe’s flight dispatch and flight operations team, including the electronic flight bag application for their pilots on flight deck.
Trusted by more than 90 leading airlines and aerospace companies globally, Bytron Aviation Systems provide operational efficiencies that they say help digitally transform airlines. Flybe will be joining a client base that includes Boeing, Flydubai and AirTanker.
“Flybe is looking forward to restarting operations with Bytron’s skybook platform at the heart of our flight deck systems,” Edward Pomfrett, Flight Operations systems engineer, Flybe said. “We have committed to breaking with the expensive, unsustainable paper-based systems of the past and moving to a fully paperless flight deck. Having considered the offerings from a variety of vendors, skybook was our clear favorite, as it met our requirements and also allowed for quick integration with our existing AIMS and PPS platforms. Throughout the setup, the support from our account managers at Bytron has been excellent. They have helped us to overcome numerous challenges and setup a fully integrated EFF system in a matter of weeks. This is now delivering immediate cost and resource savings to the business. Over the longer-term, the wealth of data from skybook will also greatly enhance our business insight and commercial strategy.“
Shane Spencer, chief executive officer, Bytron Aviation Systems added, “We are delighted that Flybe chose to onboard as a skybook customer. It is fantastic to hear that they are already seeing the benefits of our software and embracing a more digital workflow. We look forward to our ongoing relationship and bringing more efficiencies in the future.“
This deal is expected to support the development of the airline as it plans to announce its launch in early 2022.
