We require the product to be implemented and fully integrated in to our IT system in very short duration with no room for any error. The product capability, along with the proven delivery track record of IBS improves the predictability of the implementation and minimises our risk. We look forward for a successful implementation and to work with iFlight MRO in the coming years.”

Speaking on behalf of IBS, Sankalp Saxena, president & head of aviation business services acknowledges, “We are indeed delighted that an airline of such international standing has placed trust in IBS’ capabilities to manage the maintenance requirements of its flight training equipment.
