Posted 12 July 2016 · Add Comment

Following the acquisition in March this year of Navtech, Airbus has launched its new integrated flight operations and air traffic management service company – Navblue – to provide a complete range of digital end-to-end and integrated flight operations solutions.

Navblue will function as a wholly owned subsidiary of Airbus and be a key unit of Services By Airbus. Navblue’s main offices are located in Waterloo, Ontario Canada, Hersham in the United Kingdom and Toulouse in France, with satellite sites around the world.

Its portfolio integrates the existing product offer of Navtech – which is now bolstered by Airbus ProSky’s Air Traffic Management solutions, as well as Airbus’ popular Flight Operations innovations such as ROPS and FlySmart. The new subsidiary will also draw upon the unique expertise of Airbus Defence and Space coupled with proprietary high quality satellite data and extensive data analysis expertise, to deliver the most accurate solutions. Navblue’s solutions and services will not be limited to Airbus aircraft, but will build on the independent scope and position of Navtech. The product families will support both civil or military environments, on the ground or on board any aircraft.

Mike Hulley, President & CEO of Navblue said: “I am looking forward to lead into the future our new company, NAVBLUE, which is fuelled by the customer-centric agility of Navtech, combined with the pioneering philosophy of Airbus. Together, we will benefit from an expanded global footprint stretching from Waterloo to London to Toulouse and beyond.” He added: “With NAVBLUE we will reinforce and accelerate an already successful business with innovative, complementary flight operations services, talent and customer base around the world.”

Laurent Martinez, SVP of Airbus’ Services business unit said: “Navbluewill give a new impetus to the market and bring confidence in fully digital value propositions to our existing and future customers – for all types of aircraft.” He added: “I am also confident that Navblue will evolve and thrive, in the same entrepreneurial spirit as Navtech has done over the last 30 years, as an agile, independent challenger and global flight operations and air traffic management service provider.”
