We are confident that our software will support Avelo in achieving their operational and safety objectives while delivering exceptional experiences to their customers.”

CEFA FAS provides aviation professionals with an intuitive and user-friendly platform to analyze and visualize flight data effectively. Its advanced data analytics capabilities will enable Avelo Airlines to identify operational inefficiencies, mitigate risks, and optimize its flight operations, ultimately enhancing safety, reducing costs and improving productivity.
