Hong Kong's low-fare airline, HK Express, is partnering with Ideagen to enhance safety, security and quality management, being the first airline in North Asia to adopt Ideagen Coruson – an industry-leading cloud software solution.
Since its conversion into a low-fare airline in 2013, HK Express has been growing rapidly doubling its fleet, network and staff to 19 aircraft, 27 destinations and over 800 employees.
Roger Lee, Director, Quality, Safety and Security of HK Express, said: "Our utmost priority is to deliver all our guests to their destinations safely, as we continue on our exciting growth path. We are committed to the continuous enhancement of our Safety, Quality and Security management systems at all levels of the organisation. We are excited to announce that Coruson will be adopted for the proactive management of safety, quality and security performance for both daily operations and growth planning."
Spencer Mallett, Manager, Safety Management Systems, added: "Similar to other low-fare airlines in the world, operational efficiency is critical to HK Express. Coruson will provide us with efficiencies across our safety and quality operations, removing the need for physical paper processes and procedures and subsequent manual management.
"Coruson will become our interactive system that will help push ownership and process responsibilities away from the Quality, Safety & Security department. We believe the software will spark a cultural change across the business when it comes to safety and quality management."
Steven Cespedes, Ideagen's Head of Aviation, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have secured this contract with HK Express, a fast-growing, ambitious, exciting and innovative airline in the Asian aviation arena.
"Working with HK Express is yet again a further example of the quality and strength of our Coruson software within the global aviation sector. We have seen great momentum in the uptake of the Coruson software in this sector and it is great credit to the talent and vision of our development team that we continue to deliver this leading edge, best of breed, modern and social SMS solution.
"It goes without saying that we are extremely excited to be working with HK Express and look forward to a long and fruitful working relationship with them."
