SunExpress chooses FLYdocs

25 October, 2016

SunExpress has selected FLYdocs as its new aircraft records management platform and entered into a long term deal with the company.

SunExpress has a predominantly Boeing fleet and recently placed orders for 60 aircraft from Boeing, including 50 firm orders and 10 options. The firm order includes 25 Boeing 737-800 and 25 Boeing 737-8 MAX between 2015 and 2021. Almost 50% of the current fleet will be swapped out over the coming years to make way for these new aircraft.   Therefore, SunExpress required a more advanced system to manage the huge volume of associated work to ensure the successful on-time redelivery of the current Boeing 737-800 aircraft and protect its fleet asset value.

In digitising all of their aircraft records within FLYdocs, SunExpress will drive significant efficiencies into their current operations. They will benefit from unique advanced FLYdocs functionality including automated records build, repair mapping and lightning speed search.

Cemil Sayar, Director Technic of SunExpress, commented “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.”

Adrian Ryan, CEO of FLYdocs, commented “We are delighted that SunExpress has joined the FLYdocs digital aircraft records revolution. It really is the only product on the market that will help them achieve their goals take their business into the future.”

FLYdocs has already delivered product training and data migration for the entire SunExpress fleet is now underway. The system went live in September 2016.
