NAVBLUE reinforces partnership with Viva Air with new contract for further cutting-edge flight operation solutions

Toulouse, France, May 16th, 2019
  • Contract includes N-RAIDO Crew and Ops Management, Flysmart+ and N- RAIM prediction
  • Viva Air becomes second operator for N-RAIDO Crew and Ops Management in Latin America
Viva Air, the Colombian low-cost carrier, has just signed a contract with NAVBLUE for new flight operation solutions, including N-RAIDO Crew and Ops Management, Flysmart+ and N-RAIM prediction, therefore expanding its portfolio of innovative solutions to prepare the future.

N-RAIDO Crew and Ops Management is a highly configurable flight operations resource management tool for the Operations Control Center (OCC). Viva Air will be the second customer in Latin America for this state-of-the-art solution developed by NAVBLUE partner AVIOLINX. With this addition to its existing NAVBLUE solutions portfolio (N-Flight Planning and Nav Data), Viva Air will now benefit from a fully integrated flight ops suite.

Viva Air also signed a contract for Flysmart+, NAVBLUE’s Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) solution for documentation and performance, reducing paper and improving cockpit operations. With this decision, Viva Air confirms its intention to implement digital operations and joins most of Airbus operators with this proven and well recognized solution (approximatively 70%) of Airbus operators already use Flysmart+.

Finally, NAVBLUE will support the recently announced RNP-AR certification in Peru by providing Viva Air its N-RAIM prediction system. RNP-AR is a navigation specification enabling aircraft to navigate using satellites and RAIM prediction is a regulatory requirement that predicts the satellite availability during flights.

Fabrice HAMEL, NAVBLUE CEO, said: “With this decision Viva Air expands its NAVBLUE portfolio and confirms its trust in our products. By reinforcing our partnership with Viva Air, we will actively support the airline in upgrading its systems and overall operations, partnering its upcoming growth phase”.

Félix ANTELO, CEO of Viva Air, said: « As Colombia’s first low-cost airline, we want to lead the air travel experience in Latin America by innovating quickly while keeping costs low for our customers. We’re thrilled to have in our Group this cutting-edge flight operation solution that will improve not only the way we currently operate, but also bring great benefits for our customers».

Viva Air is a pioneer group of low-cost airlines based in Colombia and Peru, created by Irelandia Aviation, developer group and leader of low-cost airlines worldwide. The airline operates national and international flights in more than 21 destinations and in 2019, will carry 7.5 million passengers. Viva Air has a strong expansion plan supported by the order of 50 new aircraft Airbus A-320.
