Global risk management firm Anvil Group has announced the
acquisition of airline safety advisory service FlightSafe.
Covering more than 1,100 scheduled airlines operating in more
than 180 countries, FlightSafe’s safety assessments and airline risk
information provide a rational and quantified basis for stakeholders to
determine air travel safety policies to protect travellers.
The platform compiles data using the Airline Safety
Assessment Mechanism (ASAM), which assesses the relative safety of scheduled
commercial airlines. It is based on a carrier’s past accident record and other
factors. FlightSafe said the results are not intended to provide absolute
advice on whether or not to travel with a specific provider, but rather to use
as part of a wider system of establishing safe air travel policies.
FlightSafe will continue to be available via its current
online platform, with Anvil Group saying it will see a number of technical enhancements.
Commenting on the acquisition, FlightSafe founder John
Trevett said: “I’ve known and worked with the Anvil team for years and the
acquisition by them is an extremely positive move. I welcome the ongoing
commitment they’ve shown to the FlightSafe concept and I’m excited by what they’ll
be able to bring to the product. The additional resources and innovation skills
at their disposal make them an extremely safe pair of hands to take the
Anvil Group managing director Matthew Judge added: “Having
provided the technology architecture to host the FlightSafe website for many
years, we’re extremely familiar with the platform and the potential that it
offers in our space. As a technology-led business, Anvil is ideally positioned
to develop the service even further. We’ve been working with FlightSafe behind
the scenes and have already made significant changes to the user interface to
make the service even more accessible and beneficial to those needing to keep
abreast of airline risk information. With a strong roadmap of future
developments and enhancements in place, users can expect even greater
functionality as we take the service forwards.”
