Cathay Pacific has awarded flydocs a 10-year contract extension to continue to supply its pioneering software. Cathay was one of the industry’s early adopters in going paperless when they initially selected flydocs as their aircraft data and records management platform in 2012.
Cathay uses flydocs to provide a central source for all the data required for the redelivery of aircraft, available remotely and securely to all parties involved in the process. The first aircraft returned using the flydocs system in 2013 was the first on-time return in Cathay history. Since then all other 9 aircraft have been returned on time, paper free.

“flydocs is intuitive, easy to use, highly performant and functionally rich. For me however, the first class service delivered by the flydocs team even further sets them apart.”
Adrian Ryan, CEO of flydocs commented
“I’m delighted that Cathay has again appointed flydocs. It’s testament to the great efforts of our team working together in the UK and Asia. I’m also excited about entering this next phase of the journey with Cathay, providing the platform to manage the information and records that will enable the fully digital aircraft.”
Founded in 1946, Cathay Pacific is now Hong Kong’s largest airline. Along with its subsidiaries, including Dragon Air and Air Hong Kong, it has 23,000 staff and 220 aircraft servicing over 180 destinations. It has 70 aircraft on firm order up to 2020.
