Wizz Air and Lufthansa Technik have signed a ten-year AVIATAR
agreement to provide one of Europe's fastest growing airlines with
innovative digital fleet solutions.
Key element in the partnership approach is to further improve
efficiency of Wizz Air's technical operations by using AVIATAR's
modular solutions in the areas of predictive and preventive
maintenance and reliability management. This happens in direct
connection to the Maintenance Control Center (MCC) in Budapest. In
addition, Wizz Air will also benefit from all other innovative
offerings by Lufthansa Technik and third parties on AVIATAR.
Christian Ambiehl, Wizz Air's Head of Maintenance, said: "We have
selected AVIATAR after a detailed analysis of the offerings
available. The open and modular architecture of AVIATAR together with
the strategic decision of our long-term partner Lufthansa Technik to
neutrally offer access even to its competitors, makes it a unique
platform. Competition and access to new markets have been key to Wizz
Air's success in the past 14 years and our digital vision requires a
neutral platform, which enables us to cooperate digitally with our
MRO and technical operations partners within our growing route
network. AVIATAR also allows us to control our fleet's operational
data for the co-creation of new digital solutions to generate
additional values for Wizz Air's operation and beyond. It is our
objective to grow our fleet faster than our Technical Operations
Christian Langer, Head of Digital Fleet Solutions at Lufthansa
Technik, said: "We are a proud partner of Wizz Air and have proven
our capability to develop solutions beneficial to the needs of
operators. Together with other state-of-art products available on
AVIATAR, Lufthansa Technik's track record to deliver OEM-independent
MRO solutions have become a reality in the digital world. Together
with a growing number of airlines in the community we will continue
to develop further cost-saving solutions for AVIATAR."
AVIATAR allows operators and other participants in the MRO market to
collaborate on an open and neutral platform. It applies analytical
models to provide new insights, recommendations and notifications,
enabling users to simplify their decision processes. AVIATAR rewards
its users through the optimization of operating hours, reduced
consequential costs and safer as well as more reliable fleet
operations, serving airline passengers around the world.
AVIATAR is an OEM-spanning platform, independent of Lufthansa Technik
or any MRO service contracts. It serves as a central and connecting
hub for digital products and services for the aviation industry.
