London (UK), Jul 26: Spanish airline Iberworld has extended their contract for the use of TopAir, an airline flight operations system. The contract was signed with Avient Solutions, IBS' Global Centre of Excellence for Flight Operations operating out of London.
According to Mr. Jose Luis Cardona, IT and Quality Director at Iberworld, 'Avient has provided us with excellent service. Their support has enabled us to successfully integrate our other IT systems with TopAir.' Iberworld has been successfully using TopAir for the last four years, and have now opted to continue with the system for another three years. Avient has provided extensive support to Iberworld in integrating its IT systems and building complex crew rules into TopAir which has resulted in an error-free environment and a reduction in both manual effort and redundancy. In 2005, Avient built an Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) interface, which provides flight operations with real-time flight information.
Among TopAir's other customers are Farnair (an alliance of European Cargo airlines), Darwin Airline (Switzerland), Windjet (Italy), Hello AG (Switzerland), ItAli (Rome), Alpi Eagles (Italy), Swiss (Switzerland) and First Choice Airlines (UK). Having established itself in Europe, IBS is now aggressively moving to market TopAir in the Middle East, USA and the Asia-Pacific markets.
