As was the case for the Singapore show two months ago, the opening of MRO Americas in Orlando (Florida) on 10th April provide Airbus with the opportunity to announce several contracts for its Skywise digital services platform. The European aircraft manufacturer revealed the names of four new customers: Allegiant Air, its first in the United States, WOW Air, the Icelandic low cost operator and the Lithuanian Small Planet and Latvian Primera Air. Airbus now boats twelve airlines and over 2000 planes connected to Skywise.

Allegiant Air, WOW Air and Small Planet Airlines have opted for the Skywise Predictive Services maintenance solution, the platform's premium offer. This enables them to access all Skywise services with tailor-made assistance from Airbus. They join easyJet, AirAsia, Asiana Airlines and Etihad Airways.

Primera Air preferred to choose the basic Skywise Core offer according to a "shared value" arrangement, like Bangkok Airways, Peach Aviation, Emirates and LATAM. This enables them to use the platform free of charge, but without the associated services offer, in exchange for sharing operational data from their Airbus fleets.

Primera Air was integrated into Skywise under the signature of a flying hour support contract with a range of tailor-made services (FHS-TSP) for its A321neo fleet. In particular, this includes the A321LRs of the Latvian airline, which will begin transatlantic services with these aircraft in May.

Also signed on 10th April, this agreement guarantees Primera Air support from Airbus for components - with access to the parts stores in the warehouses at London-Heathrow and Miami, on site in its London-Stansted, Birmingham and Paris-CDG bases and on stopover, as well as to repair services -, logistics, storage and technical fleet management and inline maintenance services.

The volume of data contained in Skywise could soon take a leap forward with the arrival of FOMAX (Flight operations and maintenance exchanger). Developed in partnership with Rockwell Collins, this equipment enables a larger amount of data to be collected on-board, in particular on previous generation planes. It will enable 24 000 parameters to be monitored for each flight on an A320 and 40 000 on an A330, compared with 400 and 1500 respectively at the moment. FOMAX will be installed in production and in retrofit from this quarter.
