Singapore-based Laminaar Aviation Infotech’s implementation team has delivered its proprietary Aviation Resource Management System (ARMS) applications software solution to Korean carrier Jin Air.
The critical final phases of deployment were managed in the middle of the Covid pandemic, and delivered remotely from locations in India and Singapore, with not a single engineer or project manager on site in Seoul.
Leading the engagement with Jin Air was Collins Aerospace Systems, the exclusive global reseller of ARMS.
Starting in 2019 with a stringent evaluation process, the team of Collins Aerospace Systems and Laminaar steered the Jin Air programme for over 15 months through its phases – of due diligence, customisations, testing and deployment – as planned and to expectation.
In the final weeks, with travel and mobility restrictions, the Laminnar delivery team had to work from their homes in Bangalore and Mumbai. Critical pieces, like user acceptance test closure, data ingestion, parallel run, cutover and go-live, were all delivered in the four weeks of complete lockdown in India, Singapore and South Korea.
The solution mix for Jin Air is a combination of ARMS stand-alone modules, namely Commercial Planning, Flight Operations, Crew Management, and the Load and Trim feature from the Flight Planning & Dispatch module.
The airline is also using Laminaar’s tablet-based ARMS on the TAB components: Electronic Flight Bag, Electronic Flight Folder for the flight crew, and the ARMS on Mobile smart mobile interface for the workforce.
Clotilde Enel-Rehel, general manager for commercial aviation and network services for Collins Aerospace, said: “A more connected and intuitive system enables an airline to become more efficient in resource management and effective in strategic decision making. It is more important than ever that we support our customers to ensure that critical operation data gets transmitted in a timely and accurate manner.”
Jung-ho Choi, CEO of Jin Air, said: “As the first airline globally to implement the full suite of ARMS and the first in South Korea to utilise Collins Aerospace ARINC Integrator, we recognise the importance of leveraging on technology innovations to support a more robust system for our operations.”
