FLYHT Aerospace Solutions announced an agreement with Frontier Airlines to equip Frontier’s near-term deliveries of A320 and A321 aircraft with FLYHT’s AFIRS solution, enabling Frontier to optimize its over water routes. By gaining access to real-time fleet information through FLYHT’s solutions, Frontier aims to improve operational efficiencies in both flight and ground operations, including reducing flying time and the associated fuel burn, while enhancing customer satisfaction.
Ben Dwyer, Director Flight Ops Standards & QA at Frontier, stated, “Frontier’s partnership with FLYHT is another key step in our effort to reduce our carbon footprint by decreasing fuel consumption and further our position as America’s Greenest Airline. The real-time aircraft data that comes from FLYHT’s AFIRS family of products will also enhance communications with our flight crews as well as the customer experience by reducing flying time. We selected FLYHT after an extensive search of all available solutions in the marketplace.”
Derek Taylor, VP Sales and Marketing of FLYHT, added, “The addition of Frontier, a well-regarded airline, to our family of customers expands our client roster to more than 85 airlines globally. The operations at Frontier are an area in which we have a lot of experience, and the entrepreneurial nature of Frontier fits well with FLYHT’s agile problem-solving culture for both airborne hardware and day of operations intelligence systems. We look forward to expanding our service offerings with Frontier and are thrilled to have a customer in the hometown of our U.S. office in Littleton, Colorado. Our team there will be working closely with the great people at Frontier in making the most of all of our solutions.”
This initial order is valued at USD $680,000.
