AirAsia Group’s A320 & A330 fleets to be powered by Airbus’ Skywise

9th February, 2018

SINGAPORE: AirAsia Group has confirmed that its existing and future A320 and A330 fleet will be powered by Airbus’ Skywise Predictive Maintenance services, according to Airbus Thursday.

The scope encompasses AirAsia and AirAsia X’s fleets across all of the subsidiaries in Malaysia, Thailand, India, Japan, Philippines and Indonesia.

The airline currently has around 230 aircraft in service.

This is complemented with an order backlog of around 470 Airbus aircraft – which include 66 A330neos and over 400 A320/A321neos yet to be delivered.

All of these aircraft will thus become Skywise-enabled.

AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, said the airline eagerly looked forward to unleashing the power of Airbus’ Skywise big-data analytics and predictive technology to obtain superior operational advantage for AirAsia Group’s entire A320 and A330 Family fleets.

“Skywise will enable us to reach new insights into the operation of our aircraft, optimise our maintenance, engineering and flight operations decision-making and reduce our costs,” he said.

The finalisation of Airbus Skywise agreement with AirAsia Group was done at Singapore Airshow Thursday.

As part of the five-year contract, AirAsia’s entire fleet will be equipped with *FOMAX – a new on-board data-capture/transmission module, which is a key enabling component of Airbus’ Skywise Predictive Maintenance services.

Airbus EVP, Chief of Sales, Marketing & Contracts, Eric Schulz, said he was pleased to sit down with the AirAsia X team to share the initial A330neo flight test data and to review the aircraft operational performance forecast on the airlines’ routes, covering both the existing and projected network.

He said all the analyses had confirmed the superiority of the A330neo versus the competition.

“The combination of airframe improvements, including the hard work done by our teams on cost optimisation, the innovative Skywise application and digital benefits, coupled with the Trent 7000 new engine technology performance and associated maintenance cost optimisation, deliver unprecedented economics to our customers,” he said.

Schulz said Air Asia Group was the leading low-cost carrier in the fastest-growing aviation market worldwide and the A330neo was a fantastic value proposition, in particular for the very promising long-haul low cost segment in the 300-400 seat category.

Airbus launched its new aviation data platform Skywise in collaboration with Palantir Technologies – pioneers in big-data integration and advanced analytics – during the Paris Air Show in July 2017. Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. –Bernama
