Lufthansa CityLine goes CROSSMOS

Lufthansa CityLine goes CROSSMOS

Since June, 1st 2017, Lufthansa CityLine has been a new CROSSMOS® customer and will start to implement the CROSSMOS® eTLB in its entire fleet of Bombardier and Embraer aircraft. Lufthansa CityLine has launched the project of integrating an eTLB in its fleet in order to contribute to the modernization of the processes and to increase the environmental performance both in flight operations and in technology. By implementing CROSSMOS®, Lufthansa CityLine is taking a further step towards digitization and process optimization within the Lufthansa Group.

As Lufthansa CityLine uses AMOS as its backend MRO system, the integration of CrossConsense’s electronic logbook is expected to be finished until the end of this year because the interface between CROSSMOS® and AMOS has been running successfully in other airlines for more than one year.
Lufthansa CityLine will use the pilot and maintenance modules of CROSSMOS® and users will be able to access CROSSMOS® from the EFB that is already in place.

Axel Trampnau, Head of Technical Fleet Management at Lufthansa CityLine, says: “We selected CROSSMOS because we need to rely on an uninterrupted process. It is so significant to digitize workflows and to share information with others. We will definitely not miss the traditional paper process once CROSSMOS will be implemented in our fleet. We look forward to realizing the full impact of the new digital solution.”

About Lufthansa CityLine: Lufthansa CityLine GmbH is a wholly-owned Group company of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. Currently, 7.7 million passengers fly with Lufthansa CityLine every year. With modern and environmentally compatible aircraft Lufthansa CityLine serves about 80 destinations in over 25 countries across Europe with a total of up to 320 daily flights.

Crossmos eTLB now live on SWISS

CROSSMOS® eTLB now live on the entire fleet of SWISS International Air Lines

Beginning of this week SWISS International Air Lines finalized the go live of CROSSMOS® electronic tech log on its entire fleet. The last A/C was an A321 – belonging to the group of short-range airplanes which have been rolled out after the long-range A/C and the Bombardier CSeries (CS100).
Every single aircraft of SWISS’s diverse fleet of 94 aircraft is now equipped with a technical logbook which means that on every A/C there are two tablets with the CROSSMOS® software as well as a little router to ensure connectivity.
The main obstacles SWISS had to overcome on its way to paperless aircraft operation had to do with connectivity and the acceptance of the new technology by some of the crew members.
“I am sure that within a short period of time not a single employee wants to go back to the paper process. We can claim to be the first airline that does not use paper throughout the entire process of reporting issues in the flight and cabin logs as well as back-reporting them in the technical log. The whole process from collecting a complaint to archiving a complaint is digitized.”, says Marcus di Laurenzio, project manager of the technical logbook project at SWISS.
The next airline to be equipped with CROSSMOS® is Air Dolomiti, an Italian regional airline with its head office in Dossobuono, Villafranca di Verona.

CrossConsense on Flight Operations conference in London

CrossConsense on Flight Operations conference in London

On the world’s leading Flight Operations event the team of CrossConsense presented CROSSMOS – THE eTLB software.

In order to be well prepared for paperless maintenance, more and more airlines around the world are considering to implement an eTLB into their fleet. And CrossConsense is providing a software solution that works on every AC, no matter which aircraft manufacturer produced it.

Attendees of the conference also had the opportunity to hear about the experiences of SWISS International Air Lines when implementing CROSSMOS in their fleet. The presentation focused on the obstacles SWISS had and managed to overcome when they introduced CROSSMOS (uncharged devices, bad connectivity, narrow bandwidth – general problems which had nothing to do with CROSSMOS itself).

Air Dolomiti goes CROSSMOS

Air Dolomiti signs CROSSMOS® contract

After thoroughly testing CROSSMOS, Air Dolomiti finally decided to implement CrossConsense’s electronic technical logbook in its fleet. Air Dolomiti S.p.A owned by Lufthansa., being an Italian regional airline with its head office in Dossobuono, Villafranca di Verona, Italy, is operating a fleet of 10 Embraer E-195. The new technology will be introduced to speed up all the processes and to minimize errors in TLB data management by crew and maintenance staff. With CROSSMOS both cockpit crew and maintenance staff can report and close or defer technical malfunctions in a simple, clear and smart way.

Marco Tognini, Air Dolomiti’s eTLB Project manager, says:
“I have been involved in eTLB project since 2015 testing several solutions. We decided for CROSSMOS because we immediately appreciate how easy is its use. We are confident that nobody will miss paper once it will be implemented in our fleet. I am sure that it will probably be the eTLB for airlines in near future!”
