Flapz and GE Digital have signed a memorandum of understanding to work towards the mutual goal of increasing safety in business and general aviation in Colombia and other parts of Latin America. The duo plan to work together to provide GE Digital's Safety Insight for Business Jets, a C-FOQA software and services solution. Flapz's consortium aims to make it easy for business jet operators to improve safety by implementing procedures at the highest level of international standards.
Flapz connects passengers with regional certified operators. Thanks to a disruptive technology that enables near-live bookings, subscribers can search, compare and book flights on more than 250 aircraft, as well as empty legs and shared seats.
Safety Insight for Business Jets helps business jet operators fly safer by identifying events and trends, as well as fuel efficiency analysis. GE Digital examines data and tracks safety metrics to reveal potential areas of risk and benchmark each operator against the industry average. Operators receive all data in a simplified, modern web application.
“Our goal is to digitalise the market and help our customers and partners to reduce costs, save time and commercialise their assets efficiently and flexibly," says Ionatan Galeano, co-founder and CEO of Flapz. “We have created a disruptive mobility ecosystem with dozens of local and regional partners, and now we want to help those partners and the local authorities increase safety standards while providing a premium experience for flyers.”
“Flapz is providing an innovative and exciting digital platform for Latin American travellers,” says Andrew Coleman, general manager for GE Digital's Aviation Software business. “We are proud to partner with Flapz to apply proven aviation practices, like those in C-FOQA, to emerging technologies and provide an optimal experience for its customers.”
