The Ireland-based Aviation Group joins hands with ASQS to standardize its approach to cooperate safety

 ASQS GmbH, a leading specialist in the provision of integrated and web-based aviation QMS and SMS software announces a new contract win with the global aviation services group and a world leading ACMI airline operator for major cargo and passenger airlines, ASL Aviation Holdings.

The Ireland-based multi-disciplinary aviation services organization ASL Aviation Holdings operates four European airlines, ASL Airlines Ireland, ASL Airlines Belgium, ASL Airlines France and ASL Airlines United Kingdom, and associate and joint venture airlines in South Africa and Thailand.
The integrated quality and safety management system IQSMS will provide each of ASL’s European operations – ASL Airlines Ireland, ASL Airlines United Kingdom, ASL Airlines France and ASL Airlines Belgium – with a centralized platform for operational auditing, reporting and risk management, and will also allow ASL to link its Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) software directly to IQSMS via the FDM Risk Module.

“One of our objectives has been to streamline and standardise our tools, policies and procedures across the Group, and the IQSMS platform will very much help us achieve that objective. Other benefits include using common key safety performance indicators and a common risk classification process and the dashboards will provide us with real time safety information, allowing us to allocate resources in a timely fashion. The implementation of IQSMS will allow us to build on our existing commitment to Safety and Quality as ASL core company values,”

Jack Durcan, Group Flight Safety Manager at ASL Aviation Holdings.

“It’s an extensive and exciting project and I am looking forward to supporting our new client in the implementation process” says Ruben Inion, Key Account Manager at ASQS, who coordinates the implemention of the system with ASL Aviation Holdings.
