Austrian Airlines will become the first Lufthansa Group airline to introduce the innovative and user-friendly AVIATAR Technical Logbook in its operations. The modern design of the digital solution installed on a tablet device will allow Austrian Airlines’ Technical Operations to improve cooperation with pilots and maintenance teams likewise. Taking advantage of latest big data technologies, AVIATAR’s Technical Logbook is building on the heritage of other digital solutions on Lufthansa Technik’s digital platform.
AVIATAR’s Technical Logbook offers prefilled text blocks and automated input masks that capture technical issues of the aircraft during flight and on ground. It therefore replaces time-consuming manual entries into paper books and improves data quality as well as transparency. The solution works with any hardware device (e.g. tablet, smartphone or desktop computer) and provides pilots with access to aircraft status anywhere and anytime. It also offers back-up processes in case of connectivity issues. Real-time data availability, directly connected with the M&E (maintenance and engineering) system, ensures maintenance on arrival and enables a seamless pilot-to-maintenance collaboration – leading to decreased turnaround times and costs. In addition, the standardised data structure helps airlines to gain insights into trend analytics.
Launched in 2017, AVIATAR is the independent platform for digital products and services developed by Lufthansa Technik (LHT). The platform offers its users digital products ranging from predictive maintenance to automated fulfilment solutions. AVIATAR combines fleet management solutions, data science and engineering expertise to provide a comprehensive range of integrated digital services and products for airlines, MRO companies, OEMs and lessors that seamlessly integrate with physical fulfilment in TechOps and beyond.
