The first session focuses on various aspects of fire detection and fire extinguishing in an aircraft. The second changes the focus from fire detection to more integrated safety and security solutions as well as evacuation and fire extinguishing in airports and aircraft.

During the second day’s third and fourth sessions, the focus switches to early and effective fire detection technologies for different applications at airports, such as aircraft hangars or cable tunnels. After looking into current questions of security in luggage areas, the final session is set to focus on evacuation and related human behaviour in crowded public areas.

The conference will highlight a variety of today‘s aviation and airport-specific safety and security issues, providing attendees with an overview and deeper insights on special topics as well as inspiring fruitful discussions.

Ryanair adopts Ideagen Coruson as new safety and security management system

Ryanair has implemented a new safety and security management system developed by software firm Ideagen. Ideagen Coruson, a cloud-based software product, has been rolled out across Ryanair’s operations to further enhance the company’s safety reporting and risk identification processes and assist the airline in managing regulatory compliance.

Coruson simplifies identification, collection, collation and analysis of all information on safety and security-related events, thus enhancing risk management processes across Ryanair’s Safety, Security, Flight Operations, Ground Operations, Engineering, In-Flight and Health & Safety Departments.

Through this project, Ryanair has become the first airline in Ireland to submit electronic ECCAIR reports in E5X format to the Irish Aviation Authority by dint of using Coruson’s smart form functionality.

David Hornsby, Ideagen’s CEO, said Coruson would be used by more than 10,000 Ryanair employees. “We’re delighted to have won this significant contract with Ryanair. Coruson will be used by more than 10,000 Ryanair employees as part of this project, which will further enhance safety and security processes and ease compliance around the requirements of national and international aviation authorities.”

Hornsby added: “This is a significant project for Ideagen. It strengthens our position in the aviation safety sector. We continue to see strong new business demand for our software and, with 10% of the Tier 1 market currently using our products, we’re confident of further extensive growth in this particular area.”

Ryanair carries 130 million customers every year on more than 1,800 daily flights from 86 bases. The airline connects over 200 destinations in 34 countries on a fleet of over 400 Boeing 737 aircraft, with a further 300 Boeing 737s on order, which will enable Ryanair to lower fares and grow traffic to 200 million passengers by FY24.

Michael Hickey, Ryanair’s COO, said: “Ryanair was one of the first airlines in Europe to recognise the value of data analysis to help improve the safety performance of airlines and is committed to the adoption and integration of enhanced data analysis tools. The introduction of Ideagen Coruson will provide us with a further opportunity to capture and analyse safety and security data in real time both quickly and efficiently and help to ensure that effective risk mitigation is put in place.”

Hickey concluded: “We’re delighted to be working with Ideagen and implementing Coruson which will make our reporting systems more effective and assist us in maintaining and continuously improving our safety and security performance.”

Ideagen is a specialist in the provision of safety management software and services to the aviation industry. The business currently has a global customer base of over 3,000 organisations (including more than 300 airlines) and counts Boeing, Emirates, Thomas Cook, British Airways and KLM among that cohort.
