CEBU Pacific, the Philippines' leading airline, has selected IBS Software and its iFlight cloud platform for its crew scheduling process to further improve operational efficiency. This, as the airline adds flights to its domestic and international networks, will result in better management of staff schedules.

The move is part of Cebu Pacific's digitization journey. By implementing the IBS Software's iFlight adopt solution, Cebu Pacific will replace manual processes with digital tools to deploy new systems for crew pairings, rostering and crew preferential bidding.

"In IBS Software, we have found the ideal partner to digitize critical operations as we want to ensure that it maximizes digital tools to improve the processes for its staff," Captain Sam Avila, Cebu Pacific vice president for flight operations, said. "Employee satisfaction is important to us and iFlight gives us the tools and insight we need to make proactive, data-driven decisions to do so."

iFlight will enhance Cebu Pacific's existing crew roster system by producing fair and transparent rosters, and helping staff manage their schedules more effectively.

"It is an honor to be selected by Cebu Pacific," said Guatam Shekar, IBS Software senior vice president and Asia-Pacific regional head. "The low-cost carrier segment is dynamic and fast growing, and this partnership is testimony to our vision and expertise in helping various airlines use the latest technology to overhaul operational processes."
