The signing ceremony took place on November 4 during Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh’s official visit to France.
Under the agreement, FPT Software will provide and deploy a new set of solutions on Skywise, Airbus’s open data platform for the aviation industry. By leveraging its capabilities in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cloud, the Hanoi-based IT firm aims at assisting players in this sector to gain a competitive edge and prepare for a green reboot after the pandemic.
These solutions can help optimize fluid consumption, reduce operational costs, enhance operations across various functions, including logistics, supply chain, crew management, aircraft maintenance, route planning, and so on.
The solutions are scheduled to launch later this year and in early 2022 and are expected to support more than 140 airlines and 9,500 commercial aircraft worldwide.
According to FPT Chairman Truong Gia Binh, this collaboration demonstrates FPT Software's digital capabilities and market position as a trusted IT partner.
“I believe that the partnership between France and Vietnam’s leading companies can act as a trading bridge, enhance the two countries’ strategic cooperation and encourage collaborations between both sides’ businesses,” he added.
The Vietnamese group employs over 100 high-skilled aviation data engineers and 500 software engineers with experience in several aviation projects. With its scalable IT talent pool, proven expertise, and Airbus’s industry knowledge, Binh is confident that FPT Software would develop innovative solutions that enable aviation companies to realize their goals.
FPT Software and Airbus cooperation began cooperation in 2017 when FPT Software became one of the first trusted IT partners that helped Airbus kickstart its Skywise ecosystem in the Asia Pacific.
In 2019, FPT Software established its office in Toulouse, France, to better collaborate with Airbus in achieving its digital transformation goals. The two companies have joined forces in various initiatives to support several major aviation players to improve operational performance, ensure complete data continuity, and achieve savings of millions of dollars across the value chain.
