FLYHT Achieves Amazon Web Services Travel and Hospitality Competency Status

Calgary, Alberta – January 25, 2021 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) announced it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Travel and Hospitality Competency status.

As an AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency Partner, FLYHT has demonstrated customer success and technical proficiency in connecting their customers’ aircraft, crews, and operations. FLYHT’s product family enables airlines to provide exceptional customer service and achieve operational excellence. THE AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency designation helps customers to identify and validate the most experienced AWS partners who can help industry customers to succeed. These AWS Partners help customers by providing technology products and services to accelerate the industry’s modernization and innovation journey – from behind-the-scenes operational efficiencies to guest-facing customer experiences.

The FLYHT product family, including AFIRSTM, AFIRS Edge and other AWS powered applications in the Actionable Intelligence suite provide significant benefits to airline customers. FLYHT’s unique on-wing inference technology keeps airlines connected to their aircraft by aggregating and disseminating data in real-time via the Iridium satellite network, other satellite feeds, 5G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Actionable Intelligence derived from this data delivers guidance to airlines’ ground operations to reduce turn times, costs, fuel burn, and CO2 emissions. FLYHT’s solutions bring IoT connectivity to aircraft. The product family will be further enhanced through the relationship with AWS and their Partner Network in IoT, machine learning, and other advanced technologies.

Azur Air is one of FLYHT’s customer airlines who benefits from FLYHT’s solutions. “Utilizing FLYHT technology, Azur Air has complete visibility and situational awareness of its fleet in one user friendly interface (FLYHT’s UpTime Cloud platform with FLYHT’s Aircraft Situational Display).” says Ümmehan Mert, Aircraft Systems Engineer for Azur Aviation. “FLYHT was able to also summarize all the information in weekly automated flight summary reports directly from the UpTime Cloud AWS platform. FLYHT is well positioned from a cost and innovation perspective, by using AWS services and support, to continue to outperform competitors and create end to-end solutions for airlines.” continues Ms. Mert.

Derek Taylor, VP Sales and Marketing stated, “The team at FLYHT is very excited to be leveraging AWS. The AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency recognizes our unique value proposition, together with their extensive sales network, will ensure we reach more customers who are able to benefit from our solutions. We look forward to strengthening ties with aviation leaders in 2022 as the recovery of our industry gets into full swing.”

We are delighted to welcome FLYHT to the AWS Travel and Hospitality Competency Program,” said David Peller, Managing Director, Travel & Hospitality, Amazon Web Services.  “FLYHT’s connectivity and operational efficiency solutions, powered by AWS, can help our customers transform their business by maintaining complete operational visibility to their critical aviation assets and people.”
