Qatar Airways sign up with CEFA Aviation
Qatar Airways have signed up flight data animation company CEFA Aviation to better analyze its flights.
The safety department of the airline will recreate flights quickly and easily thanks to the CEFA FAS software based on the data from the flight recorders.
The purpose is to better understand selected portions of flights in order to cope with difficult routes and airport approaches by creating videos that can demonstrate the do’s and don’ts to pilots – thereby enhancing training.
“At Qatar Airways, we are uncompromising when it comes to safety,” said His Excellency, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Ashish Jain, Senior Vice President Group Safety and Security of Qatar Airways, added: “That is why we invest in the latest technologies to guarantee our passengers’ comfort not only within the cabin, but also in the interest of safety. CEFA FAS is a key feature in enhancing flight safety.”
Qatar Airways was the first airline in the world to achieve the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit certification in 2003 and have successfully renewed this certification every two years since.
Dominique Mineo, CEO and founder of CEFA Aviation, said: “Qatar Airways is a new first rate client for us. We are proud to support the company to make the sky safer together.”
Serving more than 29 million passengers annually, the airline handles more than 212,000 flights connecting 160 destinations. The airline is one of an elite group of airlines worldwide to have earned a 5-star rating by Skytrax.
