Aerolineas Argentinas is going digital with its MRO facilities
Aerolineas Argentinas
Argentina's national airline has just finished the last phase of the process to convert its MRO facilities to digital, which will enable major savings in time and money during its fleet maintenance tasks.

This third and final phase, which was launched at the end of February at its Hangar 5 at Ezeiza, the largest maintenance hangar in all of Latin America, involved the provision of digital tablets to all mechanics to do away with paper while simplifying the different maintenance processes. This step also featured the installation of data networks (fibre optic and Wi-Fi) in its facilities at an investment cost of 2.4 million dollars.

According to Aerolineas Argentinas, using digital tablets will enable the company to monitor all the maintenance tasks to be carried out, consult plans even inside aircraft without needing to get out and access the history of interventions carried out, among other features. All of this information is centralised within the maintenance management application, with the Argentinian airline having recently adopted the AMOS suite. This traceability also enables the traditional work forms before each intervention to be disposed of.

To make this possible, Aerolineas Argentinas had replaced its maintenance software last September with the Swiss company's software suite, guaranteeing traceability for each spare part for its fleet while generating purchasing savings and increasing effectiveness in terms of management. This second step had been preceded in the first half of 2018 by an complete reorganisation of its data center.

The Argentinian airline will have invested a total of some 30 million dollars to convert its maintenance installations to digital.
