Aegean Airlines and Olympic Air go for CROSSMOS

Aegean Airlines & Olympic Air go CROSSMOS®

Aegean Airlines together with its subsidiary Olympic Air signed contract with CrossConsense to implement the CROSSMOS® eTLB. After the final implementation CROSSMOS® will then be on board of about 61 aircraft operating under the flag of these two Greek airlines. By implementing CROSSMOS® AEGEAN Group is taking an important step moving towards paperless maintenance.

Mr. Vasilios Kardasis, Technical Director at AEGEAN said: “AEGEAN’s driving and achieved target for constant growth and development over the years has been accomplished by establishing advanced systems and technologies that indicate towards that same need in the future as well. CROSSMOS implementation is a decision for reducing manual data recording, provide almost real-time aircraft status at any time and substantially simplify maintenance handling for flight crews, maintenance staff and operations control. Higher data quality that eases control and monitoring processes of all aircraft fleets will be expected by aircraft data digitization and maintenance workflows optimization in order to continuously enhance efficiency, punctuality, reliability and safety of our commercial flight operations”.

About AEGEAN: Aegean Airlines, a member of Star Alliance, is Greece’s largest airline providing ever since its inception in 1999 until today, full service, premium quality short and medium haul services.

In 2013 AEGEAN acquired Olympic Air; as a result, passengers now have increased flight frequencies and connections as well as improved accessibility to Greece’s islands, including some of the most remote ones. Total traffic of both companies reached 13.2m passengers in 2017. The company´s summer 2018 timetable includes a network of 153 destinations, in 44 countries in total. The flights are being performed with one of the youngest fleets in Europe, comprising of 61 aircraft.

In June 2018 AEGEAN signed a purchase agreement with Airbus, for the order of up to 42 new generation aircraft of the A320neo family. The investment is valued at 5 billion USD at list prices, and it is the largest private investment in Greece. The new aircraft facilitate the offer of new services to passengers, as well as increased range capabilities for expansion to new destinations and markets.

AEGEAN was awarded as the best regional airline in Europe for 2018 by Skytrax World Airline Awards, for the 8th consecutive time and 9th time over the last 10 years.

AeroLogic case study about CROSSMOS implementation

New Case Study: Preparing to implement an ETL /ELB at AeroLogic

In the September/October 2018 issue of the Aircraft IT MRO, a new case study was published regarding the implementation of CROSSMOS® eTechLog at AeroLogic. From the perspective of a small airline the editorial staff of the Aircraft IT likes to share with readers the electronic log book project and implementation at AeroLogic. You will learn how AeroLogic prepared the change from a paper-based process to a completely paperless environment which would save cost because of the reduction in manual data recording and archiving. Another important aspect of the implementation of an eTLB at AeroLogic was to keep it simple. Find out the reasons why AeroLogic decided in favour of CROSSMOS® by reading the whole case study.

Alitalia goes CROSSMOS

Alitalia is going to introduce CROSSMOS® eTLB

Alitalia signed contract with CrossConsense to implement the CROSSMOS® eTLB. The decision to implement an electronic techlog is part of the process of “paperless maintenance” and the reason for Alitalia for heading towards paperless maintenance is not only saving paper, environmental resources, time and money but also to accelerate the provision and transmission of information.

Thanks to the new agreement signed with CrossConsense, Alitalia will be able to save more than 10 tons of paper every year, with a significant reduction of the effects of the environmental impact. Furthermore, the CROSSMOS eTLB solution implemented by the airline will facilitate and accelerate analysis, transmission and share of crucial information in the maintenance processes.

The reason for deciding in favour of CROSSMOS was the fully functional bi-directional interface to the maintenance backend system of the Alitalia group as well as the open and honest negotiations during the decision process.

Alitalia had a clear vision in mind when it decided to move forward with the “Paperless maintenance” process: in order to pursue efficiency and effectiveness in every single maintenance process, eTLB was a mandatory step and the best solution to implement a real “paperless maintenance”. The airline did also a hard work thinking in particular at its internal process re-engineering and, above all, at changing everyone’s mental approach in order to adapt to the new optimized business processes.

On last weeks ILS Connect Summit taking place in Beverly Hills (Hollywood), Siggi Gestsson from Rhino Aviation and myself had a joined presentation on Business Intelligence (my part) and a practical application of Business Intelligence with regard to the ILS electronic marketplace (Siggi’s part). We pointed out that data in itself is not intelligent but that you need the right people and the suitable applications to make data and – following this – your business intelligent. If you are an ILS customer and want to learn more about the Rhino Analytical Studio (ILS integration with MRO Software), please do not hesitate to contact us at marketing@crossconsense.de.

Lufthansa CityLine implements CROSSMOS

Lufthansa CityLine implements CROSSMOS® – A case study

In the newest edition of the Aircraft IT Operations a case study was published how Lufthansa CityLine prepared the implementation of CROSSMOS® Electronic Technical Logbook (eTL/eLB). The case study focuses on the minimum requirements of Lufthansa CityLine which had to taken into account before deciding in favor of a certain eTLB:

  • Because of the small cockpit size on current aircraft, compatibility with already existing hardware was important.
  • As Lufthansa CityLine does not currently have in-flight connectivity, the solution had to be one that does not require constant connection to ground.

If you want to learn more about the other reasons why Lufthansa CityLine decided to implement an eTechLog and about the preparations they made to implement CROSSMOS® , please do not hesitate to contact us by writing an email to marketing@crossconsense.de or sign up for the case study by following this link:

AeroLogic goes CROSSMOS

AeroLogic goes CROSSMOS®

AeroLogic signed contract with CrossConsense to implement the CROSSMOS® eTLB. The joint venture of DHL Express and Lufthansa Cargo currently operates 10 Boeing 777F Aircraft in a worldwide route network with destinations in Europe, Middle East, Asia, North and South America. By implementing CROSSMOS® AeroLogic is taking an important step moving towards paperless maintenance.

Michael Geis, SVP CAMO at Aerologic says: “The signs point towards growth for AeroLogic and its fleet size. Implementing CROSSMOS is an important step to optimize processes and get prepared for the future. The eTLB will reduce manual data recording, provides real-time Aircraft status at any time and substantially simplifies maintenance handling for flight crews, maintenance and operations control. As a side effect we expect higher data quality thus less control efforts. We are confident that CROSSMOS is the right tool to streamline processes and workflows to continuously ensure and enhance efficiency, punctuality, reliability and safety of our cargo operation.”
