CAE today announced that it has signed a 10-year agreement to equip Frontier Airlines (NASDAQ: ULCC) with CAE’s next generation of flight operations solutions. With implementation scheduled to begin later this year, CAE’s cloud-based Operations Control, Crew Management and Flight Management solutions will support Frontier with the latest and most feature-rich operations software available today.
Frontier Airlines becomes the latest airline in North America to move to CAE’s portfolio of next-generation solutions – the first since the acquisition of the Sabre AirCentre business in February 2022. CAE’s solutions will enable Frontier to take advantage of the latest-available technology, driving step-change improvements in performance over legacy software in the optimization of flight plans, aircraft usage, and crew communication and engagement.
“We are thrilled to partner with CAE and begin integrating the latest versions of their industry-leading, comprehensive software solution,” said Brad Lambert, Vice President, Flight Operations, Frontier Airlines. “As we have seen in the industry over the last few years, updating core operational software is imperative to optimize flight operations, identify flight planning efficiencies and more quickly manage disruptions and recovery.”
“We are proud to have Frontier Airlines extend its partnership with CAE and become our latest customer to benefit from our next-generation flight operations solutions,” said Pascal Grenier, CAE’s Senior Vice President, Flight Services and Global Operations. “Frontier is positioning its business for long-term operational success, with CAE’s newest solutions modernizing its operations to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and better manage disruptions. Our solutions are constantly evolving and getting better thanks to forward-looking and innovative customers like Frontier.”
In addition to committed, sustained investment in its solutions, Frontier will benefit from CAE’s robust delivery model, extensive experience in deploying mission-critical software in complex operational environments requiring intricate system integrations, and 24/7/365 support.
