 Brussels Airlines, the flag carrier and largest airline of Belgium recently partnered with FLYdocs to support its end-of-lease (EOL) return services for a fleet of five Airbus A319 aircraft.  

The partnership between the two subsidiaries of the Lufthansa Group will see FLYdocs build and audit digital records for five EOL aircraft in the Brussels Airlines fleet and facilitate their on-time return to their respective lessors. 

Jan De Meyer, Strategic Planning Manager at Brussels Airlines said:

Whave full confidence in our collaboration with FLYdocs to seamlessly complete these aircraft transitions in a timely manner. Having worked with the team previously and benefitted from the efficiencies of the FLYdocs® platform for a number of years now, we look forward to working collaboratively on these projects. 

FLYdocs Commercial and Marketing DirectorJohn Bowell also commented:

“We are proud to have such a long-standing relationship with Brussels Airlines that we are once again supporting them with their aircraft transitions. From previous experience, we know that the reporting and project status functionality of our platform, in particular, has delivered enormous value in reducing risk and contributing to the success of our partnership. With the current travel restrictions, being able to remotely manage this project with complete transparency for the Brussels Airlines team will help minimise any miscommunication and delays to their operations.”

    - Heiko Holm, Technical Director, Wizz Air

    - 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.

    - 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
