Delhi, 30th January 2023: Any security lapse in Air India aircraft will now be detected within minutes. The company will use Coruson, a cloud software application that will provide real-time information. This step has been taken to enhance safety management and facilitate real-time reporting of in-flight incidents. The announcement by the Tata group-owned airline comes in the wake of three incidents of misbehaviour by passengers on two international flights last year. The airline carrier was fined by the aviation regulator DGCA for some reporting lapses over these incidents.
Safety data software application Coruson will be online from 1st May 2023. It will facilitate real-time reporting of in-flight incidents, i.e. reporting at the same time as they happen.
Air India said the application will largely eliminate the need for paperwork. It will ensure automated processes to deliver critical information to key personnel and executives without any delay. It will also lead to timely action.
The airline is also engaged in purchasing iPads for pilots and crew members. When this software is introduced, Coruson will be available on these devices. Coruson will further enhance end-to-end security management. This includes real-time intelligence, reporting and status of in-flight incidents inside the flight. IdeaGen covers all aspects of software risk. This gives the airline a complete view of safety data from aircraft maintenance to cabin crew checks on board.
Henry Donohoe is the Chief of Safety and Quality at Air India. He informed that the airline will ensure a seamless flow of intelligence and data on a real-time basis. For this, necessary and adequate upgradation of existing systems and processes is being done.
He added that the induction of Coruson will go a long way in enhancing the capabilities for the safety and well-being of passengers and crew, especially at a time when Air India is rapidly expanding its network. As per the release, Ideagen has a customer base of over 11,400, which includes over 250 airlines.
