FPT to bring ‘hot’ technology on Airbus flights

FPT Software and Airbus signed agreements on develop aviation technology relating to Airbus’s Skywise, a recently launched aviation data platform.

With the announcement of two key agreements earlier this week, Airbus further underscored the success of its Skywise digital aviation data platform – which aims to become the single platform of reference used by all major aviation players to improve operational performance and business results.

FPT Software, in the short term, will train in how to utilize Skywise in developing solutions to improve business efficiency in the aviation industry. The training courses on the Skywise platform will then be expanded to Airbus customers and Skywise users.

The cooperation between FPT Software and Airbus will also cover matters such as the provision of API for third parties to develop applications on Skywise, the migration of applications onto Skywise, and the maintenance of Skywise applications.

“Skywise, ‘the heart of aviation’, is a strategic initiative at the core of Airbus’s digital transformation and a game changer for the entire industry,” said Mr. Marc Fontaine, Digital Transformation Officer at Airbus. “As part of this open and innovative ecosystem, we are happy to engage with FPT as one of the partners that will help us take this challenging endeavor further.”

Launched last year in collaboration with Palantir Technologies, Skywise provides users with a single access point to their enriched data by bringing together aviation information from multiple sources into one secure, cloud-based platform physically hosted in Europe.

According to Chairman of FPT Software Hoang Nam Tien, this agreement with Airbus – the aircraft manufacturer who has high and strict requirement will be a “certificate” of quality for FPT Software to meet and work with any company in the world.
