Automating data flows between airlines, MROs and OEMs. Example: Engine overhaul
Realizing paperless maintenance and operations has been the target of airlines, MROs and OEMs in recent decades. With the increased adoption of electronic technical logbooks and digital solutions in maintenance, a growing number of airlines are getting close to going 100% paperless in their internal operations. However, that development is less well advanced when it comes to external communication. Data sharing is essential for efficient collaboration in the industry.

Sustainable aviation: how European airlines are bringing this vision to life?
Despite the damaging effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation industry, the focus toward zero-emission aviation has never been shifted, and actually, many new initiatives have been launched, such as Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF), electric-hybrid and hydrogen-powered aviation initiatives, use of data to cut the fuel consumption or maintenance needs. Though acknowledging that most of the operations are still highly dependent on fossil fuels and non-sustainable sources of energy, here are some initiatives by some leading European airlines.
