Skypaq, is a software developer based in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, which recently announced a 10 year contract with Finnair. Prior to its investment the company had developed its innovative software with an Irish airline which subsequently went out of business. Breaking into the international airline sector was never going to be easy and needed the support of industry insiders and the larger technology service companies. The company has since secured investment from the McEvaddy brothers and the Murtagh family investment vehicle. In addition to assisting Finnair, the Finnish flag carrier, in becoming the first commercial airline to implement a paperless cockpit, the company is in the process of installing its software in its first US airline customer and will be soon announcing further new clients.
