Taiwanese carrier launches cargo business with IBS
Starlux Airlines, Taiwan's newest luxury carrier, has deployed a platform provided by IBS Software to manage business and operational functions for its entire cargo business.
"iCargo" was implemented ahead of Starlux Airlines' launch in January 2020, which saw maiden flights to Macau, Penang and Da Nang with three A321neo (the delivery of the seventeen A350 is expected to begin next year).
Although Covid-19 has significantly impacted flights, Starlux's cargo operations have been ramping up quickly. Starlux CEO Glenn Chai: "So far, iCargo has proved itself to be well worth the investment. It is an advanced digital solution featuring advanced and user-friendly functions."
Over the last 24 months demand for iCargo has seen 18 implementations going live – including eight new customers. (ah)
