Dublin, Ireland - 03 October 2016
Aircraft software company Arconics announces a significant software deal to deliver AeroDocs, the leading document management system for aviation, to SpiceJet. SpiceJet is a successful and fast-growing LCC, with a fleet of 42 aircraft, mainly Boeing 737s, and 42 B737 MAX 8s on order.
AeroDocs will allow SpiceJet to distribute digital documents in a secure, controlled manner, with workflow tracking to help maintain regulatory compliance. The paperless cockpit, as enabled by AeroDocs, also brings environmental benefits, with reduced fuel burn and carbon emissions.
SpiceJet is undergoing major growth, along with the Indian aviation market in general. This growth brings the challenge of managing control over digital documents to maintain regulatory compliance. In March 2014, SpiceJet signed a $4.4 Bn deal with Boeing for the procurement of 42 737-8 MAX aircraft. SpiceJet is also in talks with both Boeing and Airbus for a further substantial order of single aisle aircraft. SpiceJet has more than doubled its profit in the first quarter of the current fiscal year.
AeroDocs is designed to handle every fleet size and any aircraft mix, so it will scale with SpiceJet. The AeroDocs deployment will go live in 2016, after testing, document upload, staff training programmes and regulatory approval are completed.
Niall O’Sullivan, Arconics CEO, said:
“As the thriving Indian aviation sector continues to grow, we are delighted that AeroDocs will help Spicejet reduce the cost and complexity of meeting their regulatory obligations. SpiceJet joins our growing client list of the world’s most respected, profitable and loved airlines and we are very happy to become part of the success story that is SpiceJet.”
The full solution suite of Arconics software will be demonstrated at the Airline and Aerospace MRO and Operations IT Conference, in Bangkok on October 26 and 27, 2016.
