Wizz Air becomes first customer of AVIATAR's Technical Logbook solution
Wizz Air becomes the first customer of the Technical Logbook solution of AVIATAR. Through the newly introduced solution, Wizz Air will replace the manual and paper-based process of capturing technical issues during flight/on ground and implement the seemless digital pilot-to-maintenance collaboration application.
AVIATAR's Technical Logbook offers prefilled text blocks and automated input masks that capture technical issues of the aircraft during flight and on ground. It therefore replaces time-consuming manual entries into paper books and improves data quality as well as transparency. The new solution works with any hardware device (e.g. tablet, smartphone or desktop computer) and provides pilots with access to aircraft status anywhere and anytime. It also offers back-up processes in case of connectivity issues. Real-time data availability, directly connected with the M&E system (maintenance and engineering system), ensures maintenance on arrival and enables a seemless pilot-to-maintenance collaboration - leading to decreased turnaround times and costs. In addition, the standardized data structure helps airlines to gain insights into trend analytics.
Julia Brix, Head of Technical Services at Wizz Air, said: "Following our goal to become a paperless airline and to further reduce our environmental footprint significantly, we are excited to become the Launch Customer of AVIATAR's Technical Logbook solution in partnership with Lufthansa Technik. AVIATAR's Technical Logbook will help Wizz Air to deliver such goals by introducing a full paperless cockpit for our crews and also for maintenance. Due to its full integration with AMOS, meaning also live feed with both MOC (Maintenance Operations Center) and OCC (Operations Control Center), the solution will further enhance Wizz Air's Technical and Operational performance."
"Especially during these difficult times for the aviation industry, it is our goal to help our customers to improve their processes digitally with new solutions on AVIATAR. The modular Technical Logbook application will help our long-standing partner Wizz Air to not only benefit from direct efficiency gains but also enable them access to a completely new pool of real-time operational data. We are proud to jointly work with Wizz Air towards new predictive use cases and health management features leverage this data," said Philip Mende, Vice President Digital Fleet Solutions at Lufthansa Technik.
