MINT Software Systems has signed a service agreement with JetBlue Airways, the contract covering the delivery of the MINT System as a SaaS (software-as-a-service) solution for the management of all training activities within JetBlue University with a focus on pilot, cabin crew and aircraft technician training.
“We are extremely proud to win JetBlue as our newest customer,” commented Christian Hollmann, vice-president of MINT Software Systems. “JetBlue have carefully evaluated various solutions available on the market. Our training management system has proven to be the best solution to match their demanding requirements. We are very happy about their decision, because it is the result of our continuous hard work, to provide an innovative and modern set of tools to manage the ever more complex training requirements of aviation and non-aviation organisations.”
According to Brian North, director of JetBlue’s technical training, “MINT provides a single platform for our scheduling, record-keeping and data needs while remaining scalable for JetBlue’s future growth.”
The JetBlue–MINT agreement includes training management for cockpit and cabin crew and AQP management and JetBlue intends to implement MINT across all functional workgroups within JetBlue University, the training arm of the airline.
The choice of MINT in this role is completely separate from the airline’s choice of Mint as the name for its premium transcontinental product, recently introduced on new Airbus A321s.
