National flag carrier to benefit from online aircraft records build & audit.

FLYdocs, the aviation data and records management solution provider and global industry leader in managing the lease transfer of aircraft and assets, today announced Brussels Airlines, the flag carrier and largest airline of Belgium, as their latest client for end of lease (EoL) services. FLYdocs’ team of aircraft records specialists will build and audit digital records for 10 end of term aircraft and facilitate their on-time return to their respective lessors.

Data scanning and electronic migration for the initial fleet of three A319 and seven A330 Airbus aircraft, which are due to be returned between October 2018 and October 2019, has already been completed. This involved an onsite team scanning over 3.3 million original documents stored in almost 1600 boxes. The digital data is then passed through several highly advanced proprietary processes to extract maximum utility from it in order to build and audit complete aircraft documentation. To date, documentation builds for 6 of the 10 aircraft are already complete.

Jan De Meyer, Technical Representative & Records Manager at Brussels Airlines comments: “We’ve enjoyed the collaborative approach to this programme, and have found the reporting functionality within the FLYdocs platform of particular value. We can instantly see a project status, identify queries and delegate team members to respond to them all within the system. This detailed visibility across all EoL transitions provides us with every confidence in our ability to successfully redeliver this large number of aircraft in such a short period of time.”

FLYdocs CEO, Adrian Ryan, commented: “We welcome Brussels Airlines to our growing family of Airlines, Lessors and MROs who are benefitting from the time and cost efficiencies of streamlined aircraft redeliveries enabled by FLYdocs. There is no denying the business case for digital lease returns, and therefore no reason for any airline today to be incurring the risks, costs and potential late return penalties of paper-based operations.”

Whilst initially signing-up with FLYdocs for a phase-out programme, Brussels Airlines have since contracted FLYdocs to manage the phase-in of two A340 aircraft due for delivery in early 2018.

What they said

    - Rob Saunders, Manager Engineering Development Cathay Pacific Airways
  • We have already enjoyed the benefit of cost and time savings involved with researching historical information – what used to take days to complete, now takes mere seconds to search and find documentation.
    - Jim Landers SVP- Technical Operations Hawaiian Airlines
  • The FLYdocs document audit was very comprehensive and captured a lot of discrepancies that might have otherwise been missed during a physical on-site documentation review. Once in a digital format, it was very quick and easy to locate a required document or piece of information.
    - Dean Pang, Engineering Executive at SilkAir
  • FLYdocs® allows us to be prepared and in a proactive position instead of reacting to document findings from a lessor just before the physical inspection starts. The feedback from the lessors is always positive as they can review the documents online and on different remote locations.
    - Werner Reiser Senior Manager Phase Out Program SWISS International Air Lines Ltd
  • We are excited to be moving to a new digital way of working that will transform our current engineering practices and we ensure that we deliver against our ambitious asset transition programme, keeping us and our fleet at the forefront of aviation in Europe.
    - Cemil Sayar, Director Technic, SunExpress
  • FLYdocs not only brings a leading software solution but also specific expert knowledge in the area of commercial aviation records management.
    - Rob Saunders, Manager Engineering Development Cathay Pacific Airways
  • The visibility and advanced electronic real-time audit functionality across both the records and aircraft physical inspection sides of the process have allowed Virgin staff, our MRO partners and the lessors, lessees and aviation authorities involved in the process to pro-actively manage each delivery with ease.
    - Rick Daniels Information Services & Airworthiness Records Manager Virgin Atlantic Airways
  • The platform’s superior functionality will provide us ease of use and multi-user web access to technical aircraft records from anywhere in the world.
    - Justin Goatcher, CDB Aviation, Head of Asset Management
  • The platform will bring much more versatility and control across the entire audit and transition process. We are also excited by the improvements it will make to our aircraft remarketing and trading performance too.
    - Rich Poutier, Chief Technical Officer, MCAP
  • We were impressed by the technical capabilities of the FLYdocs® platform. We contracted FLYdocs to manage the complete project from scanning to audit, and have the FLYdocs team to thank for their hard work and expertise.
