Scandinavian Airlines has signed a five-year contract with Airbus becoming the latest European operator to go with Airbus’ Skywise Health Monitoring (SHM) digital solution. Scandinavian Airlines will apply Airbus’ Skywise Health Monitoring solution across its entire A320, A330 and A350 family fleet of 78 aircraft.
“We are very pleased to see our long-time partner Scandinavian Airlines join the Skywise family. We firmly believe that with Skywise and SAS’ continual push for innovative solutions we will see them propelled to new levels of productivity and efficiency. I want to warmly thank SAS for their trust and confidence.” said Charbel Youzkatli, head of Airbus Commercial Services Europe.
Skywise Health Monitoring will support Scandinavian Airlines’ maintenance and engineering departments to identify, prioritise, analyse and handle in-service events. This enables quicker decision-making and aircraft on-time dispatch while also minimising ‘aircraft on ground’ risks, helping the airline save time and reduce the cost of unscheduled aircraft maintenance.
By adopting Skywise, Scandinavian Airlines will integrate their own operational, maintenance, and aircraft data into the Skywise cloud, so the carrier can store, access, manage, and analyse selected Airbus data, together with own data as well as global benchmarks without the need for additional infrastructure investments. This resulting value will provide new insights at aircraft, fleet and company level while allowing the operator to enhance their operations through access to OEM expertise and global fleet context.
Skywise is a key element of Airbus’ digital transformation. It is an enterprise data platform driving digital collaboration across the aerospace value chain by capturing information from all upstream processes, including design, engineering, manufacturing and combining it with in-service data and maintenance support. Skywise is accelerating digitalisation in aviation by providing players across the sectors with the data and capabilities to make better operational decisions.
