Kerala-based IBS Software has inked a deal with LATAM Airlines group based in Chile for providing technology for unifying its entire fleet and crew operations worldwide on a digital platform.
Headquartered in Santiago (Chile), LATAM Airlines group has one of the largest route networks in the world, operating more than 1,300 flights per day and offering services to more than 140 destinations in 26 countries.
Under the contract, IBS’ iFlight NEO system will replace the existing, disparate legacy systems and provide a single, integrated digital platform for LATAM group airlines across its global network for end-to-end flight operations, crew management and disruption management, worldwide.
The browser-based application will unify and streamline the operations across LATAM’s affiliate airlines with several tools and features designed to help airlines optimize resources, employ emerging technologies and boost decision-making processes.

“As part of our commitment to offering our customers industry-leading service, we continue to harness the latest technology and digital tools to optimize efficiency and ensure our passengers arrive to where they want to be, on-time,” said Hernán Pasman, Chief Operations Officer, LATAM Airlines.
“This is a large and complex digital transformation exercise and we are confident of adding substantial business value to LATAM,” said Jitendra Sindhwani, president & head – global sales and marketing, IBS Software.
