Icelandair selects FLYdocs

Icelandair has awarded FLYdocs a ten-year contract for its revolutionary electronic aircraft records management software.

Like almost 70% of commercial airline operators, Icelandair manually maintains all their aircraft records. However, Icelandair is joining a number of next-generation airlines who have made the business case to move to a fully digital platform. For Icelandair, this will drive efficiencies into a time consuming and people centric process allowing them to refocus their resources on more valuable activities.

Due to its unique geographic positioning, Icelandair operates a growing number of transatlantic routes using the niche Boeing 757 aircraft. FLYdocs is well equipped to handle the complexities that this brings in terms of records management.

Ásgeir Bjarni Larusson, Manager Maintenance Management at Icelandair commented

“FLYdocs will structure our data and make it available digitally all in one place. It will allow us to find records as-and-when we need them for all our aircraft, going back years. This will make us much more efficient and bring significant savings.”

FLYdocs’ Chief Executive, Adrian Ryan commented,

“FLYdocs is delighted that Icelandair chose FLYdocs as their aircraft data and records management platform. We are looking forward to working with them to help transform their approach to records management and advance the business.”

The scanning and data migration of all records for the 34 aircraft commences in June. A FLYdocs team will be based on-site in Reykjavik.

What they said

  • 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.
