Kenyan low-cost carrier Jambojet has selected Laminaar Aviation Infotech’s ARMS Flight Planning System for its flight operations. ARMS, which provides fully-automated flight planning capabilities and significant productivity savings, will help Jambojet unify flight operations and fuel policies across its operations.
The ARMS Flight Planning System brings together real-time information on a number of key variables – including weather, air space restrictions, aircraft performance and schedule information – and then calculates the most optimal flight route. ARMS technology aims to help Jambojet to deliver a wide range of enhancements in flight planning and operational efficiency, including a subsequent reduction in CO2 emissions.
Jambojet has been on a growth trajectory and recently announced its entry into the air cargo business. As a young, no-frills airline, being new-tech adaptive, fully digitalised and paperless, are driving factors for the airline to stay competitive, efficient and profitable.
“Laminaar Aviation is fully committed to helping Jambojet optimise its operation across its network to deliver efficiencies and fuel savings,” said Bony Sharma, vice president of Laminaar Aviation Infotech in Singapore.
Jambojet, a brand of Kenya Airways, is Kenya’s first low-cost airline. The airline serves eight destinations from its hub in Nairobi-Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu, Malindi, Ukunda (Diani), Lamu, and Goma in Eastern DRC; and 3 routes from its secondary hub in Mombasa to Kisumu, Eldoret, and Lamu. It also handles cargo operations across all its routes.
